Davis



Rebecca Tippit Davis is well-documented. She is found in Mississippi in 1860 and 1870 with son Thomas,
and as I mentioned earlier, in 1880 with William and Asene Davis in Rapides Parish, Louisiana.

My findings prompted me to contact a researcher who has done extensive work on the Tippit family and has
quite a bit of information on Alford Davis and his brothers and sister on her website. I asked her if she had
come across any mention of Alford and Rebecca adopting a son, and she had not. After comparing notes, I was
relatively certain that the family rumor was just that, a rumor.

This has now been confirmed with DNA testing. The rumor has been officially debunked. My husband's
Davis heritage has been verified. William Thomas Davis is indeed the natural son of Alford Davis
and Rebecca Tippit.
