Charles Davenport is the longest living ancestor I have found so far.  102 years!  Wait a minute – have I confused Charles Sr with Charles Jr.   There are pitfalls in this work!

Charles Davenport headstone  Grave marker for Charles Davenport.  The American Flag indicates he is a War Veteran.  The dates are 1730-1805.  He ied at age 75, living 2 years beyond his father’s death in 1803.  Charles Davenport Sr. 1700-1703

Both men could have served in the Revolutionary War.
