Comments: Believed to be the son of Moses Davis and Mary Carr based on the middle name and the guarantee Samuel made. It was noted during a lawsuit between he and his mother that he a child of Mary's prior to marrying Samuel.
Here's my speculation and spin...Moses and Samuel were very good friends. Moses named his first born after Samuel. When Moses passed Samuel wed Mary and took Samuel on as his own. OK, today it is a theory. Tomorrow we may get lucky and find the link...good hunting.
