Notes for ROBERT DAVIS:
The Davis Cemetery was deeded to Robert W. Davis in 1860. Robert Davis died in 1867 and his land, in that same area, was deeded to his several heirs. Possibly his was the first burial in what was to become a family cemetery. There is no marker to indicate his grave, nor his son William.


It is believed the ancestors of the Davis' in the Davis Cemetery came from Pennsylvania to Maryland then to South Carolina. It is even possible they were among the 300 families removed from Wales to Pennsylvania between 1682 and 1700 which represented 2,000 individuals many bearing the name Davis, Cooper, James or Moore.

Davis is the oldest Welsh family names. In the first U.S. Census, taken in 1790, it was the fourth most common name, ranking after Smith, Brown, and Johnson.
