Family of Davenport, Charles and Green, Martha Melinda

Married Husband Davenport, Charles ( * about 1794 + before 1850 )
Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage about 1840      

In 1880 and 1900 census, Catherine says her father from VA and mother from TN,
ergo, her father is one of Henry, James, or Charles. But both James and Hannah
are still there in 1850 - why wouldn't she be with her mom? It's possible if
Hannah's she's living with her mother's nephew (Sampson, son of Nicholas, son of
Thomas Cassetty), but Hannah had John in 1840. So I'm left with Charles... Catherine
is not living with her siblings, so I assume Melinda is her mother. Since Catherine is a Davenport
I assume Melinda married Charles, prob around 1840.
