Davis Family Tree

Simeson Davis and Mary Ann McConnell- The Third Generation

Simeson Davis was born in Somerset, Pennsylvania on 25 July 1809, the eldest son of James L. Davis and Mary Patterson.

He married Margaret Ann McConnell on January 7, 1840. Margaret's parents were William McConnell who was born in Franklin, Pennsylvania in 1775 and Mary Mahon, who was born in Ireland in 1770. There is no further informationn on Mary Mahon but I found William McConnell's parentage back to Alexander McConnell who was born about 1753 in Ireland.
