Hi! Kip,  on Walter Davis b 1797.  I don't have a Walter Davis in my geno but I do have lots of Davis names.  I found the immigrant, James Davis b 1584, arriving New Hampshire 1607 aboard the ship "Gift of God."  He brought seven children, wife and two servants.  I believe all the children married in NH.  My ancestor, Asa Davis, moved up to Somerset Co. and served in the War of 1812 and d in Skowhegan.  The other children stayed in NH and MA.  I found much information on "Davis" lines in "The History of Canterbury, NH" and "History of Durham, NH" by James O. Lyford.  Both manuscripts are available online-PFD's google.  You may want to take a look.  The "Davis" line is quite extensive.  I just learned recently the name originated in Wales for the patron saint David.  The Davis folks decend from an ancient tribe of Welchman.  Good luck finding Walter!  Sincerely, Nancy Davis
