Hamner Davis North Carolina/Tennessee

I'm trying to unravel the names in an old Davis Family Bible which is watermarked and faded. Unfortunately, only the date of death is written. The following are the names in question.

Hamner Davis - Death: 10 Oct 1830
Mindy (Amanda) Davis - Death: 20 May 1858
Willey D. Davis - Death: 11 Jul 1858
Margaret Davis - Death: 20 May 1859
David Davis - Death: 18 Feb 1866 (Mindy (Amanda) is thought to be his wife.

The information I have received from living Davis descendants is that the family lived in the Bellsville ? Madison County, Tennessee area before moving to White County, AR in 1860-70.

James Robert Davis (1834), son of David and Amanda Davis, indicated his parents were from NC and TN on the 1880 census. He died in 1898. He was married to Elizabeth Jane Cannon (1844) SC.

I would be happy to share any information I have with others.
