The Davis Family
My Great grandparents Henry Thomas Davis and Dixie Marie Gryder Davis and children. The tallest boy is my grandfather James William Davis. The other boys are named Oscar, Marshal, and Audrey, but I am not sure in what order. The little girl is Annie. They had one more daughter whose name is Nettie Jane. Dixie Marie's parents were Annie Lou Blacklock and William Robert Gryder. Thomas Henry's parents were Marshall Abner Davis and Bernettie Mae Williamson.

I am sorry. My great grandparents Thomas Henry and Dixie Marie are both from East Texas. Dixie Marie was born in Bunyan, Texas. They lived in the Erath area, and also in Liberty Co. where Henry died. Dixie Marie is still living.
