Notes on William Edmond Davis
There may have been a sixth child, a son named Garrett, but I can find no record of him. He would have been born after the 1880 census and died before the 1900 census.(RDJ 09-24-2010).
He and Sarah Lavanda Moore were 1st cousins.
Notes on Lela Davis
Need to do a thorough search of Cocke and neighboring counties to see if I can determine if she married between 1910 and 1920. She was in the 1910 Census (I think) but not the 1920 with her father. If she died, then she did so after 1900 and there is a chance there would be a death record snce they began in Cocke County in 1902. (RDJ 09-24-2010).
Thorough search of Cocke and surrounding counties for a "Lela" or "Lila" of any surname in 1920 showed no one. Also checked Knox, Sevier, Greene. If she lived to 1920 and was married, which is probable, without a marriage record it is impossible to tell where she was at this time. (RDJ 09-28-2010).
Notes on Harriet "Hattie" Davis
I believe she was the second wife of Sheridan Valentine, as he had older children almost the same age as her who lived with the family in the 1920 Census.
