I am looking for the parents of my Sarah 'Sally' (Davis) Trammell,

Sarah Davis born Feb. 3, 1805, married Javan Trammell of Buncombe Co., NC Feb. 27, 1822, Javan and Sarah lived in that same area until sometime between 1840 and 1850 when they moved from Henderson Co., NC, to Gilmer Co., GA. Sarah outlived Javan, she died August 15, 1876. They had 16 children.

I am trying to determine if Surry Davis could be the father of my Sarah Davis.

Surry Davis lived in Buncombe Co., NC for nine years, those nine years covered the time period that my ancestor Sarah (Davis) Trammell married in Buncombe Co., NC.

SURRY DAVIS was born December 22, 1764 in Greenville, S C, and died October 1853 in Roane Co.TN or Meriwether Co.Ga. He married (1) SARAH MAUDLIN in Buncombe {now Henderson} Co., NC. She died Bef. 1796 in prob Buncombe Co.,. He married (2) MARAGRET MAUDLIN Abt. 1796 in Buncombe Co., NC.

Surrey was in the South Carolina Militia and served as a private. Applicant stated that Surrey was born in Greenville County, North Carolina
and moved when very young to Abbeville District, South Carolina where he
resided until the American Revolution. He volunteered in June 1780, and
served as a private in Captain John McGaw's Company. Colonel Robert
Anderson's South Carolina Regiment. He was in the siege of Ninety-Six
and in several engagements with the Indians. His length of service was
about fourteen months.
