my great grandfather Adelbert Merchant married Minnie Ellison, sister to Jenny Ellison Davis. Both were born in New York. Not able to find them as a family in the census. Years of research I believe Susan their mother died prior to coming to Michigan. Haven't found any proof that Alfred remarried. Yes Jenny married Robert Davis. They had two sons, Oren and Alvin Davis. Family story goes like this...a baby was left on the front porch of Davis's house, Jenny raised her as her own. Last year my father asked me to check into who was Beulah's parents. My research led me to Florence Wall and Frank Thompson-via marriage license. Would like to get into contact with you to share stories and get the true life stories of Beulah Thompson Davis.
