Possible candidates????

Data is from

This will require more research for sure - But!
Levi and Irene were married in Henry Cty, OH in 1872 and the Levi Davis living in Napolean, Henry Cty, OH in 1870 was son of 'S' and Elizabeth Davis. This Levi had brothers Gilbert and Samuel.

Levi and Irene can later be found in Napolean, Henry, OH and so can brother Gilbert and mother Elizabeth living husband Sam in 1880 and widowed living with Gilbert in 1900. Both their mothers (Elizabeth) consistently noted as born PA. Levi's dad is listed as 'born at sea'? while Gilberts dad is listed a b. in OH; and Sam sr's dad is listed 'as born at sea'? Not sure which is which, but that is unusual enough a statement to suspect some connection.

And from brother Sams name I guessed that 'S' Davis, father of Levi, might be also Sam, which led to Gilberts marriage cert listing parents as Samuel Davis and Elizabeth Sheet? And a Sam Davis -b. correct timeframe for his brother - died in Napolean, OH. So this all seems connected.

There are other children on a Levi Davis and Irene Myers with births/marriages etc. that you might want to research further to see if you can find any more, using the free search tool at:
The 1880 census shows your Henry F. with brother Jacob and sister Hannah which seem to match the rest.

Good Luck, not my Davis line.
