I am also researching this particular Davis family. My line in this family goes like this: John M Davis>Joshua Davis>John T Davis>James Davis>George Davis>Buddy Davis>me Linda (Davis) Goodwin. 
I would love to swap info with you. I have also been searching for the wife of John M Davis, with no luck at all!! Any suggestions on how to find a wife's name? All I have on John M Davis is that he was born about 1790 in KY and was a minister and was located in KY and then Pike Co., IL by the 1818's , then in Miller Co., MO by the 1840's, I lose track of him by the 1860 census. Do not have a death date or place? Sincerely Linda, 

I am researching the Family of John M. Davis. Per the article on the MO, Pulaski county website he was one of the pioneer families of Pulaski Co, MO. Per the article submitted by Sylvia Daughterly he was a minister born abt 1790 in KY (Where in KY?). What was his wife's name?
The names of his nine children are given in the article. Several names and dates missing. John's last 3 children appear to have been triplets all born in 1824. I found the line I am interested in most, in the 1860 Pulaski Co, MO census. He is one of the triplets born in 1824. According to the census he married a Louisa ? and in 1860 they had 3 children: Mary and George M. a pair of 8 year old twins and a 2 year old male named Asberry.

I am looking for specific information on Asberry. I know he moved to AR in about 1907 and died there in 1916. I know the names of most of his 14 or so children but I don't Know the names of his two wives. I know his father John W. Davis and wife Louisa were not in the Pulaski Co. MO census in 1870 or 1880. I think from family lore they stayed in MO but I am unsure. I would love to exchange info on Asberry and his family with anyone researching the family. I have a large file of info from about 1900 until now. I can fill in the names of most of Asberrys children, dates , spouses. etc. 
Anyone searching Davis family please contact me. Jerry Crute

[Note from Nettie Mae: I think this is his family? as we don't have any info on Benjamin and the info Jerry gives doesn't fit in with the others.]
