May 31, 1800, The Mormon Family Search International Genealogical Index (IGI) Film Number 903571 claims that Jacob Davenport was born "ABT 1737" and his father was Richard. The same record claims that Zachariah was born June 6, 1774, with parents Jacob Davenport and Johannah Garrett. The FamilySearch Ancestral File record AFN 11BW-B20 claims that William Davenport was born "ABT 1799" in Whitley County, KY, with parents Zachariah Davenport [AFN 11BW-B0K] and Precilla Spruill [AFN 11BW-B1R]. However, the Ancestral File contains unverified family sheets submitted by private individuals, and may contain errors and conjecture. William was actually born in Kentucky on June 6, 1800 (from his headstone and the KY census), and Zechariah had already married Jean Douglass by that time (from the Washington County, VA marriage records).
