Hi Duane, thanks if the photos are of Martin & Mahala I definitely would be interested in seeing them. Yes I am descended from Reece Davis. I have never heard that he fought in the Civil War. I have a death date for him of 1854 so before the War began. Has anyone in your family taken a DNA test? We have several in my grandmother's generation who have (in their 80s and 90s). Those are always good as their DNA is closer to the source. If your mother is still alive, you might consider asking her to test. DNA can lead to great discoveries and since we already have some early Davises tested, that's helpful for mapping the DNA.
