Our Latest Video Discussing And Sharing Our Melungeon & Native American History

I will be starting a video series on our youtube channel that goes deeply into the Davis (and their kin through marriage) Melungeon and Native American genealogy over the next several months.

I’ve had so much interest and questions that have followed on from the last Melungeon video we did where we toured Sneedville and the adjoining area to find answers to our family’s history that I felt it would be a fitting format to share all of what we are learning, capturing by way of touring these locations, and also data and evidence found from personal stories and on the web.

I hope you enjoy this video, it is part 1.

  1. In reading this page I found the paragraph that speaks about Richard and Edney Davis. The information is correct about him being taken as a small boy by chief by Cornstalk and raised by the natives until his early twenties when he came back to the “white settlement” in 1777. The Shawnee had been recruited by the British during the revolution and he was arrested as a traitor by someone who knew about the massacre came to his aid and vouched for him. I do know that he is listed as a land owner in the Greenbrier County records around the 1780’s
