      Introduction
      Samuel Luckett Davis of Surry County, North Carolina, had fifteen children, all attributed to his wife Rachel Creson.1 A closer look at the evidence tells a different story. Three of Samuelís children were not Rachelís and his first wife was a widow with four children.

      Background
      Samuel Luckett Davis, son of William and Nancy Davis, was born by 1773, probably in Frederick County, Maryland. Samuel likely arrived in Surry County by March 1794, when his father leased land along the Yadkin River from Joshua Creson. Nine years later, Samuel married Rachel Creson, Joshuaís daughter. Samuel was at least thirty and Rachel, about sixteen.
      In 1848, when Samuel died, his estate was divided among his widow Rachel and his fifteen children.

      Samuel and Rachel lived in the portion of Surry County which became Yadkin County in 1850. Rachel died in Yadkin County in 1854, six years after Samuel. On 3 July 1854, Samuel H. Speer became administrator of her estate. Two days later Speer became administrator of the estate of Peter C. Davis, Samuel and Rachelís youngest son.
