Christopher "Kit" Davis was born about 1616 in (presumed) Bishopwyck, England. It is unclear exactly when Kit Davis came to New York, but some believe that he first went to the Massachuesets Bay Colony around 1636 and then settled in Manhattan. From there Kit is believed to have moved to Fort Orange around 1638, finally settling in Ulster County, NY. There is a record of Kit, an English trapper, living in the hamlet of Connolly along Roundabout Creek in NY about 1651 and building a log cabin around 1654 in Redout Kill, NY.

In "The History of Ulster County, NY" by N. Sylvester (published in 1880): ".. it is noted that Kit Davis, a trapper, said a rumor floated among the Indians. This was a prelude to the first Esopus Indian War of 1659. Kit was an Indian interpreter. He liked this business, and the Indians liked him. At one point during the unrest, Officer Smith sent Chistopher Davis to the director with information of the true condition of Esopus. He went down the Hudson River in a canoe. This was on September 21, 1659. During one Indian attack, the daughter of Motagne was kidnapped. Kit, who now lived in Rensselaerwyck, was dispatched after her. It is noted that Kit's son, Jan, was also an Indian interpreter, and trapper, and at one time accompanied 5 Mohawks to solicit for the return of prisoners...."Christopher Davis being at Fort Orange, some Mohegan savages were sent to invite him down, for the Dutch wished his service to parley with some savages".

Kit Davis married Cornelia De Vos about 1644, and married second Maria Meertens about 1660 in Ulster, MY. Children of Christopher Davis and Maria Martensen are:
1. Isaac Davis, born Abt. 1661 in Marbletown,Ulster County,New York; died Abt. 1712 in Marbletown,Ulster County,New York; married Jannetje Maurits February 1690/91 in Kingston,Ulster County,New York.
2. Abraham Davis, born May 3, 1663 in Esopus,Ulster County,New York; died Unknown.

4. Jan Davis, born Abt. 1670 in Marbletown,Ulster County,New York; died Unknown.

My ggg-Grandfather, Benjamin West Davis,settled in Chautauqua and Allegany counties in Western New York State.He had children by then:Stephen and Benjamin were two.Stephen Sweet Davis was my gg-Grandfather.He may have been born in Fredonia,NY in 1821.He had a wife,Caroline, and a son-I think Stephen. Much later, he had a wife,Maria Hoyt Rice.At this time, Stephen went into the army and fought in the Civil War.He got tuberculosis and came home.He died shortly thereafter.However, he did have a son with Maria by the name of Timothy Mosher Davis .Timothy married Carrie Belle Cole and had seven children .When half of them were grown,he took young ones and his wife to Erie County,Pa.One of his sons was Harold Allan,my Grandfather. Harold went to WWI as a radioman and chauffeur.When he returned from Europe, he married my Grandmother Izola McEntarfer of Union City , Pa.One of their children, Robert, is my father.
I have come to the conclusion, thru my own research, that Benjamin was amidst the mass exodus of pioneers who originated in New England and then hop-skipped counties along southern NYand northern Pennsylvania. He travelled among past and future relatives by the names of Hitchcock,Rice,Hoyt,Merrick,Davis ,Mosh-er,Cole, Crittenden, and Aldrich.Maxson is a name from past lines.
I HAD BEEN SEARCHING FOR MY GRANDMOTHERS FAMILY DAVIS FOR A LONG TIME. I CAME ACROSS MRTEABERRY AND I CAME ACROSS A RELATIVE OF MY FAMILY. SHE HAD A LOT OF DATA ON THEM. PLUS PHOTOS OF MY GREAT AUNTS AND UNCLE.SHE SENT ME PICTURES AND I SENT HER A PICTURE OF MY GANDMOTHER. SO WE HAVE A WHOLE FAMILY. I LOVE THIS SINCE I AM RETIRED. I AM HAVING FUN. JEANINE LACY
