Name: Green BRANTLEY
The idea that John Davis, Sr. of Baldwin co, Ga. was the father of
William A. Davis is based on a legal notice that appeared in the
Milledgville, Ga., Union Recorder on December 2, 1856. Supporting this
lineage is the following:
-- both John and William A. were from Baldwin co.
-- I can find no other William A. Davis in Baldwin co at that time.
-- William A. Davis b. 1821 was of sufficient age (35) in 1856
to be acting as a co-administator of the estate of John.
-- His selection implies, but does not prove, that William A. was
the eldest son or only son of John.
-- Two other men (Green Brantley and John Kittrell) were
listed as administrators after William impling. Could this mean
they were the husbands of daughters of John and sisters of William?
Later, a similar notice addressed the sale of property of John in
Washington co. where he must have had property as well. Same
