{3} Davis Lineage


The Davis lineage traces back from Utah to a Quaker heritage in Ohio, (through Virginia and Pennsylvania) then to New Jersey, and finally Long Island, New York. Because the immigrant to America was probably a “Ranter” the idea at one time was that he was an exile to Long Island from Edinburgh, Scotland, from whence a party of covenanters had come. Subsequent research has discounted his being a member of this particular group who came to New Jersey in the year just subsequent to that accepted for his marriage. This hypothesis is mentioned and then discounted in chapter 7 of the biography of John Davis’s mother-in-law Dorothy (Scott) (Gotherson) Hogben.
