Davis Family Mysteries

There is a later Samuel B. Davis in Baileyton, Tennessee, son of James Davis and Rachel Maltsberger. His family is entwined with our Davis family in many ways, but the two families do not seem to be related.
His son, William K. Davis, married Josephine E. Davis, daughter of Jesse Emerson Davis and Elizabeth Shanks. His son, Charles B. Davis, was a good chum of Charles F. Davis (my grandfather, son of Jesse Emerson Davis and Elizabeth Shanks). Charles Franklin Davis and Jennie White Davis named their youngest child (my mother) after Charles B. Davis' wife, Dorothy Mayo. Here's a little more information on this parallel Davis family from Baileyton, Tennessee:
Is mentioned in the will of Jesse Davis, but in a separate category from his sons. Witnessed the will of Sarah Antrim Davis. What is his relationship with this Davis family?

Is Leland Davis connected to our Davis family?
