Hello! Here is all I can figure out so far...
My father, Norman Edward Davenport is the son of Luther Milton Davenport, whom is the son of Milton I Davenport. I have a picture of Luther M Davenport and his wife, beautiful picture of them before he dies at age 25. Just cant figure how to post it. To his info!
Thanks! Adrienne Davenport Reeves (FL)

Hi Maureen! There is an error on one of the names of Milton I and Daisy Davenport's children ... William Luther (Bud) DAVENPORT b: 14 DEC 1916
His name was Luther Milton (Bud) Davenport ... He is my paternal grandfather, my father's (Norman Edward Davenport) father. It wasn't William Luther per my dad. Bud dies when he was 25 from gang-greene infection. He had a wire whip for his cow or horse and snapped it at one .. A small piece of the wire lodged and broke off into his rib area and he dies 7-8 days later. My dad was only 3.
