I am looking for information on my grandfather, g grandfather, g grandmother and her family. My grandfather, William David Harrison Davis was born in Bernie, Stoddard, Missouri in 1877,1878, or 1879. His father's name was James Buchanan Davis and his mother was Elizabeth Helms. I was told she went by Betty. Her father was Harrison Helms and her mother's name was Rhoda. James was born in Indiana (I think) and Elizabeth was born in Illinois. I was told that Elizabeth died when William was only about 10 months old, and his father died when he was around 10 or 12. William was then taken in by 2 retired school teachers for his education. I know he worked on the farm of Harrison Helms for a time. That is how he met Elizabeth. I was also told that William was considered a half breed. I am not sure if the Indian is from the Davis or the Helms. I keep running into brick walls with this person. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate any help I can get.
