This is the only known family photo of my grandfather Henry Davidson and his family. It was taken shortly before Henry was murdered in 1929. My father, J.C., is the youngest child in this photo and he was born in 1925. I have estimated my fathers age at about 2 or 3 years old when this photo was taken. This photograph includes Henry Davidson, wife Kate Hamilton, and children, Levi, Fannie, Earl, Eva, and J.C. My grandmother Kate was pregnant with Jessie when they took this photo. Henry and Kate had two other children who were named Hallie and Sarah. Both of these children died in infantcy.
