Note*2003  Note from Annette Floyd Kaplan: I learned two weeks ago when I was down riding around with Wayne, there is one Davis woman still alive down in that community who can help us straighten out the Davis connection (Papa's mother was a Davis). Her name is Rubye Pope and she is the daughter of Cousin Wilbur and Cousin Mittie Davis. I saw her house off in a distance when I was there but did not connect in my mind to her parents until I got home. I want to go back down and figure out her relationship to Uncle Pete (Jessse) Davis and Uncle George Floyd Also how Fanny and Hawk Kinchen fitted in. Rubye is older than I am and I would guess her to be about the age of Tina so I must not wait too long.

Anecdote*  My grandmother said the Davis' was pretty mean, but "the Grahams and Harts was the meanest folks on the face of the earth." Course, she never saw anything but a Davis in herself. :-) She would wear out a willow switch out on you, in a heartbeat. Ed
Mamie Davis was one of 6 children, all daughters. Mamie lived until 2003. She was born in 1907. Her mind was sharp until about 2001, when dementia caught up to her. In her 80s and early 90s she could look at a group picture of her school class and name every person in the picture. If you found a picture with people and animals in it, she could name not only the people but also the cows, chickens, dogs and cats in the picture. He stories about growing up on a farm where all of the work was done by 6 girls was quite interesting. They worked the fields, pastures, woods and the house at the same time. My mother started recording her interviews with her mother, but I have yet to find any of the old tapes.1

 Nancy Davis was the daughter of Reuben Davis and Willie Ann Fair
MARRIAGE*1903 She married Kinion Phillips in 1903 at Dexter, GA.2 
Biography*  Doris Dixon note says: "belonged to William Davis and Lula Sparrow" and she is correct as Jimmie Lee Davis has told me - MVW. 
Note* She Note from Ed Harmon:
I do not know how much you know about the entire matter, but it is a pretty sordid tale. It all began in 1890 when William "Bill" Davis died of Typhoid in June and his wife Lusia E. "Lu" Sparrow died on July 10, 1890 during child birth. The children were split up and "taken in" by the families of the Zacharias Davis children. As I read the notes, this was the split according to my mother's notes:

Sally Davis and Warren Hart took, Minnie and Willie

Ruben Davis and Ann, took Nancy and Pink

Fannie Davis and Willis took, Fanny

Mary Ann Davis and George Meyer took, George

I do not know where the other children went.

Sometime after the death of the parents Nancy turned up pregnant, Nancy's brother's apparently decided that Ruben had lived way too long and thus Ruben left the country, assuming the alias Lee Johnson. Pink then went to live with Warren & Sally. John Graham was after Pink before she turned 14 and that may have been what the Hart's objected to, John was 26 and Pink 14 when they married. It might also have been that the Hart's did not like the Grahams, period. Daniel Graham, John's grand father looks to have been quite the brigand, with robbery, burglary, theft, murder, etc. to his credit. I do know a Daniel Graham from Georgia, killed his father in-law a Barefoot, in SC and I have found a note that says grandma Barefoot died at near 100 sitting in her rocking chair with her corn cob pipe in her mouth. A pencil note is at the bottom and says related on the Graham side but do not know how. Soooooo it must be the same Daniel. This would also explain my grand mother's comment about the Grahams being the meanest people on the face of the earth.3 
Name Variation  Nancy Davis was also known as Nancy Davis. 
Married Name1903  As of 1903,her married name was Phillips.
