I am related through Joseph Davis - he is my great grandfather.After Mary Duling died he married Ruth Artemissa Blair Norman Rice Emerson - yes she had already gone through three husbands!
My grandmother, Ellen Adele Davis, was one of the children from this marriage.She married Allen Nirole Jolliff and they had four children - my mother being the youngest.
I have a wonderful old album of pictures with a list of who is who in my mother's writing.I assume she sat down with her mother and got the information.Trying to figure out who people are has been a challenge as my mother knew next to nothing about her family and she died in 1975 leaving only this list with the pictures for me to go on when I got interested in family history.
But my grandmother obviously stayed in touch with Mary Ensley Davis Mulkey and a number of the pictures are of her and her children.
I've only just begun to learn about the Mulkey family with all the preachers who have been written up.I found a grave for a Joseph Davis in a Mulkey Cemetery when I was in Kansas in 2002 and the marker indicated that he had been a preacher of the word for 40 years (that is not exact).I can't yet prove that it is my Joseph Davis who is buried there but it is a real possiblilty.
Mary Ensley Davis ended up living in Oklahoma with her oldest son from her first marriage and is buried there in Lamont, Oklahoma.
I am glad to share what informationn I have if anyone is interested.
