Biography

Richard Davis was born in 1755 in United States. He was born before 1767.1 He and Elizabeth Ann wife of Richard Davis were married before March 1791. It is somewhat problematic that Elizabeth w/o Richard Davis is always referred to as "Ann", not Elizabeth in the Fayette county records. In Jessamine county, KY and Washington county, Indiana she is referred to as "Elizabeth", not Ann.

So that puts this whole family in the "it's possible" but may not be correct category.1
He died between 1799 and 10 October 1803 in Jessamine County, Kentucky.
Research Note:. Note that daughter Mary Davis and husband Elijah Nicholson had a son named Edward Nicholson. There was an administrator of the estate of Richard Davis -- Edward Davis. Could he have been a brother, father or uncle of Richard Davis?
Also note that daughter Sarah Davis and George Mauzey named a child "Richard Davis Mauzey" in 1813.
Richard Davis had person sources.1 He was surveyed between 1781 and 1797. He was courtcase between 1786 and 1791 in Russell County, Virginia. http://sites.rootsweb.com/~varussel/court/ruscolobk1.html
