Thanks Ron. It's not really possible to distinguish which Charles Davis he
is on the censuses before 1881 because I don't know his parent's names or
where he was born. There are too many to choose from. I only have the
birth certificate of one of his children, I'll have to get some others to
see if the information differs.
