Just a note to put it on record that we are related by marriage. My great
grandfather's sister married one Milton Stapp Davenport who I understand is
a descendant of Davis Davenport.
(One of Milton's descendants that I have contacted considers himself a
Tidewater Davenport rather than a Pamunkey Davenport. I am not currently
able to sort that out.)
