The Twin Falls area directories haven't been much help yet. There is a C.M. Terry living at RR3 in Buhl, through 1960 (but not 1962). I can't confirm that this is Columbus M., but that is the most likely. I see only one other marriage in the Western States Index, for one daughter.

I have not had much time to check for the children.

There appears to be a matching Lora F. Smith in the SS index, who was born, 20 Nov 1913, and died 12 Nov 2006, last residence Pocatello ID.

You have been most helpful. Now I can order an obituary for Lora, and if it is Lora Terry, get some info possibly on her siblings, children, etc. I am related to her through her mother, Elizabeth Davis, and am trying to trace this line as far down as I can. Thank you again.

Hi, your grandmother had a brother named Edgar F Davis b.1904. Do you know what happened to him? He is mentioned in his father's obituary but I can't find him after that.

I am a descendant of your great grandfather David P Davis's sister, Melissa.
