I am very late but just found this discussion thread and wanted to add a comment. I don't believe Elnathan Davis and Lucrease Cook were the parents of Sarah Carpenter Davis and her sister Martha Davis. The 1850 Buncombe Co., NC. census record lists Martha Davis, born 1830 - 1831 in NC., living with Lewis P. Fore and Sarah (Davis) Fore. Both the 1860 - 1870 Buncombe Co. censuses list Alexander Davis, born 1792 - 1793 in NC., living in their household. According to information given on the above census records, Alexander Davis was also listed as Alex Davis on the 1850 Buncombe Co., NC. census. Both Alexander Davis (listed pg. #313B) and Elnathan Davis (listed pg. #291A) were on the 1850 census putting them in Buncombe Co., NC. at the same time, but with Alexander Davis living in the Fore household I think he was Sarah and Marth Davis' father rather than Elnathan Davis. It is possible that Alexander and Elnathan Davis were brothers.

Both 1850 and 1860 Buncombe Co. censuses list Alex/Alexander Davis' occupation as Cooper which verifies him as the same person in both censuses.
Hope this helps. Jan Lawson
