    Hi – I am looking for proof of a Rebeckah Davis (m. to Lemuel Allis/Ellis) relationship to her parents, Isaac Davis and Charity Hall – or to find out who her real parents are, if they are not her parents.

    I come thru Truman Leonard m. to Roxanna Allis (daughter of Rebecca Davis & Lemuel Allis/Ellis) & their son, Truman Leonard m. to Mary Ann Meadows; their daughter, Amy Louise Leonard m. to Heber Allen; their daughter Viola Margaret Allen Alexander m. to Charles Rodoph Wing; and their daughter, Barbara Wing Coleman m. to my Dad, Norman Kenney Coleman.

    I have the marriage record of Lemuel Allis/Ellis to Rebecca Davis as 20 Jan 1779.

    I also have Isaac Davis’s will, which mentions a Rebecka as his daughter.
    Charity Hall, his wife, is born in Stafford, Tolland, Connecticut. 18 AUG 1723, Connecticut Births and Christenings, 1649-1906.
    Lemuel Allis/Ellis’s, husband of Rebecca Davis, is born 22 Jun 1747 in
    Somers, Tolland, CT, Connecticut Births and Christenings, 1649-1906. He is the son of Reverend Samuel Allis/Ellis who died 16 December 1796 in Somers, Tolland, Connecticut, I have many proofs up to Rebecca Davis thru her daughter Roxanna Allis m. to Truman Leonard. I have many proofs from Isaac Davis & Charity Hall to their progenitors. I have many proofs linking Lemuel Allis/Ellis’s to his progenitors. I just have to establish solid proof of Rebecca Davis to her parents.

    This URL links to find a grave citations that link the family as well as gives numbers for each name (linking to sources/cites listed for the family, including research I have done).

    Can you help me or steer me in the right path? Thank you so much! Sincerely, Jackie Coleman
