Melvin Davis searches for family from North Carolina
Mr. Melvin Davis has been coming to the museum on and off for about a year. We have been working on his family from North Carolina. He has been doing research for at least 20 years. So we are filling in Census information, deaths and finding in-laws.
His family includes the Davis family from Vance County and probably descends from or was owned by Archibald Davis a white plantation owner.
Also these families: Foster, Williams, Granger, Grissom, Malone, Peace, Yarborough, Plater, Sutton, Turner, Richardson, Hunter, and Taylor.
