I have just started the search of my family history. I am looking for any information regarding my great grandfather Charles Franklin Davis (1870-1935). His son John Dewey Davis(1903-?) was my grandfather. My mother Naomi Lee Davis Finley has given me some information that she has and Ive seen a few pictures. I would like to try and go back a little further though to Charles Franklins parents or even further if possible. I would really appreciate any infomation at all. Thank You, Connie Finley

I dont really know when Charles Franklin Davis was born. His son John Dewey Davis was born in Mena Arkansas in 1903. So he was there at some point in his life. Ive heard it is possible that Charles Davis may have been born on the Trail Of Tears. Havent heard anything for sure yet.

I am not sure if we share the same relative. The Charles Davis that I have info on was mostlikely born in Keshena, WI. His parents were John and Iequaw (Louise) Davis. John Davis is related to Jefferson Davis, he was born in VA and died in Wood, WI in 1893. He also spent 4 years in Libby Prison. Iequaw was a full blooded Menominee Indian, born in Keshena, WI. Her father was Setaminananny (River Man) he was also born in Keshena, WI.
