Thomas Davis

        Thomas Davis was married, Jan. 11, 1722, to Abigail Parsons.  We have (Davis) been unable to trace her ancestry, but she was doubtless a descendant of Samuel Parsons, one of the early settlers of East Hampton.  She died in Dec, 1745, aged 60 years.  Thomas Davis was a merchant, as is proved by old account books and papers now in possession of his descendants of the 7th generation.  He was known as " Lawyer Davis."  He kept his store in what is known as the ■■ Old Davis Homestead," at the north end of the village of E. Hampton.  The old house is still standing, although removed from the location where it was erected (in 1888). [History of the Davis Family, by Albert H. Davis, 1888, p.8:]
