Hi Dennis,

I have not been able to get emails to go through to your email address, as they keep getting returned.
First I want to thank you for all the information on Mary Dorcas Gleaves/John Davis and the whole Gleaves family. I have been reading it with great interest and find what you have written just fascinating! I also went to Chapter 9 and have a question. I am down to Mary Dorcas Gleaves and John Davis. In chapter 9, it only lists three children. However, I have Mary Dorcas as having 10 children with John Davis. The one that is connected to me is Ellen Mordant Davis who married Peyton Henderson Robertson. If you look at the three children listed, there is a large gap in the births. The book I have on Ellen Mordant Davis shows ten children who were born to Mary Dorcas Davis. It was written by Sarah Foster Kelley.

Why isn't Ellen listed on your chapter? Is the Kelley book wrong? I have her listed as being born on May 16, 1804. The ten children I have listed for Mary Dorcas Gleaves Davis are: Sophia Western Davis, Fanny Grieves Davis, Ellen Mordant Davis, Nancy Watkins Davis, Eliza Hamer Davis, Susan Paralee Davis, Howell Tatum Davis, Darthula Drope Davis, John Elisha Davis, and Cornelia Caroline Davis. I hope my Ellen is one of the children of Mary Dorcas. Does this sound right? I wish I could get your email to accept my note.
Thank you so very much,
