My interest in the Caters and Davises stems from a book that I wrote in 2014 about my direct ancestor Simon Williams, which details the several families that his children had married into. 1 His son Lewis had married Elender Cater, who, as the following shows, was the sister-in-law of John and Israel Davis
Most of the people covered remained in Warren County only briefly, but two Davis brothers stayed longer. Israel Davis was there for 20 years before migrating to Illinois. His brother John died in Warren County in 1835 after having resided there for 25 years. Several of his children continued to reside in Warren County and the surrounding area for generations afterward.
