Some coincidences suggest they may be James River Davenports:
1) marriage of Daniel Davenport and Elizabeth Ledbetter before 1787 in Prince George County, VA, or,
2) Elisha Davenport of Patrick Co, VA - http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/davenport/2008-09/1220816083
3) Joseph Davenport and Judith Richardson are included in the JSDavenport's James River Chronicles "Prince George Marriages". Richardsons were neighbors and intermarried with Davenports in Jackson County.

Alternate parents of the 4 brothers? have never found their children:
Virginia Marriages, 1740-1850
Marriage Date: 24 Dec 1787
County: Petersburg
State: Virginia
[probably the family of Joseph Davenport, writing master at William & Mary College, Petersburg, VA]
