Descendants of Swan's Island and Frenchboro's William Davis
According to Dr. Small in his 'History of Swan's Island', William Davis, a relative of John Rich came to Swan's Island in 1794 as did Mr. Rich. Mr. Davis took up land adjacent to Mr. Rich and eventually left at about the same time, but went to Long Island (Frenchboro) where many of his descendents have lived.
It is not at all clear if the Capt. William Davis (1817 1894) is descended from Dr. Small's William Davis. Research continues.
