Appendix A  -  Notes


1.  William DAVIDSON

Lisa Davidson   Jul 1998
William Davidson in East TN -- Blount county. He left a will dated Oct 1817 in Blount county, 
TN. He listed heirs: Sons, William, Samuel C, and Andrew and daughters; Catty Walker, Elizabeth 
Gammel and Rebecca Walker. I've found marriage records in Blount county for Elizabeth to Andrew 
Gamble and Rebecca to Samuel Walker. A son-in-law, John Walker, is mentioned in the will and I'm
 assuming that is Catty's husband. No wife is mentioned. I don't know what happened to sons 
William and Andrew. My line goes through Samuel C. Davidson. I've found nothing to indicate 
where William, Sr. migrated from. The earliest references are in June 1796 in Blount county as a
JP. Also have a NC land grant that is possible to him dated Nov 1792 but can't link up for sure.
Also a reference to William Davidson in "History of Blount County" dated 1793 having horses 
stolen by Indians at Gamble Station.
William's will named six children but no wife.  Sons Andrew, William and  Samuel C Davidson. 
Daughters Catty Walker, Rebecca Walker and Elizabeth  Gammel. I've found Blount Co. marriage 
records for Elizabeth marrying Andrew Gamble and Rebecca marrying Samuel Walker.  
William's will mentioned son-in-law John Walker as co-executor so he must belong to Catty.

William Sr. lived in Tuckaleechee Cove on Little River.  I've found reference to a William 
Davidson losing three horses to Indians at Gamble's Station on Little River in 1793.

My husbands line is through Samuel C Davidson and I have pretty good information on him except 
for who he married.
