"My ancestor Beals DAVIS states on the census he was born on Orange, NC...I'm trying to identify & validate his parents as he was born in 1785...
One far out clue may be his Mother's maiden name may have been HEALS ?
In the 1790 census there are 9 DAVIS names listed but have nothing other than Orange, NC.
Any thoughts on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.
