Davis, White, Bransom, Bellard, from TN. MO. AR. in 1800's~ 1900's

I am Lisa Carol {Davis}Gobin. Born in Harrison,Ar.11/5/1962. My mother;Dorothy Ellan{Thompson}Davis was born 12/23/1923 in Calico Rock,Ar.To Huey Rodney Thompson,& Hattie Viola {Stuart} Thompson.She passed away at my home in Diamond City,Ar. 2/16/2006. Buried next to my father at "Maple Wood Cemetery" in Harrison,Ar.
My Fathers Family are the ones I am longing to know more about.My father; Levi"Joe"Davis, born 8/14/1919 in Peel,Arkansas.{Boone County} Passed away at NARMC in Harrison,Ar. 8/10/1983.
My fathers mother; Ida Mae {White}Davis,Mears. Born 5/7/1884. Said she came from Tennessee. But, what part I do not know? She passed away in Flippin,Ar. 1972. I went to her funeral,and remember her well for being so young while being around her. Her Father's name was Bird White, and her mother's name was Ellen Bransom.
Bird White's Father was Offord White, and his mother was Nora Bellard.
Ellen Bransom's Father was George Bransom.
I would really like to know about my ancestors from this line. [All names and dates copied from old family bible]
My Father's - Father; Ren Allen Davis. Born to Milligan Davis & Mary Elizabeth Davis {who were first cousins}.
My Grandpa Ren told my mother that the marriage of his mother and father split up what had been "The whole Davis Family" that had lived around the Arkansas/Missouri border area. Possibly the Peel, Ar. area? The two brothers who were the Fathers of my great grandmother and father was against the marriage. "It is not biblical to marry ones own cousin". So out of shame and anger the family disowned each other. As told to my mother by my grandfather Ren Davis.
