Thank you again Brenda! This was a big help, in that it confirms that Kenneth was a native of St. Louis, MO.It also tells me that Geneth & Kenneth Davis moved to Tampa 3 yrs. after the death of her mother, Ruth (Seekatz)Schaale.Also interesting that his 2nd wife had a similar name.I think that she's this one from the SS Death Index.
Name Birth Death Last Residence Last Benefit SSN Issued GEORGINA R DAVIS20 Jun 1919 25 Dec 2000 (V) 33624 (Tampa, Hillsborough, FL) 12533 (Hopewell Junction, Dutchess, NY) 056-32-5564 New York
With her SS issued in NY, makes one wonder if Kenneth met Georgina there while visiting his daughter Beverly in Bath,NY.Also nice to know from his obit that Beverly remarried, so I need to switch the search from Dago to Williams. Although if the grandchildren mentioned in Geneth's obit were Beverly's, then their surname would be Dago.There are only 3 Kenneth Davis listings in Tampa, so hopefully one of them is the son, as there were 6 potential Wheeler listings in Bath, NY for the daughter.Now if I can finally find a "live" cousin, my search will be most successful.I don't know how to thank you enough for all of the help you have provided.I've never had such fast results.You have earned your "geanie wings" for sure!!!
