  1. I am Colette Davis, descendant of Mary & Vincent’s son, Judge Jonathan Davis, first child born in KY. There’s a grave at the old Presbyterian cemetery on the left/west at the north end of Bloomfield, KY not far from 1805 log cabin they built (still there) when they brought their 5 oldest. In that cemetery is a grave of one of the older siblings born in VA I believe the name was Catherine Davis, never married, quite elderly. Died after they stopped burying at the little Davis graveyard on log cabin property, I estimate, in the late 1840s.
