My ancestor had 3 cases for debt in 1837. Are these records on microfilm or the internet? Is there some other way for me to see these records outside of Maine?…

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
