{162} Davis Lineage

Inbreding among the Quakers in the early settlement of Pilesgrove brings this Davis lineage together with the one from Oyster Bay, Long Island. The Quakers there were not averse to serving in public office and David Davis, who preserved his family record after 1754, began it with the “Name of God”. Notice that since John and Dorothy married in 1680, their oldest son would appear to have been born very close to that time. Hence, Isaac could hardly have been out of his teens by the time he had a child (Abigail) old enough to marry Elisha Bassett in 1718.
