I am posting a reply because of your name and the fact that you are from Knox County. My grandmother was Lillie Davis, daughter of Farmer Davis and Janice "Janie" Dezarn Davis of Clay County KY. I have been trying to find out info on Farmer's family and I know that he had a brother from Barbourville KY named Shermon Davis (I don't know if the Shermon was a misprint back then or not)and a sister that lived in Middlesboro KY, whose name was Janie (how confusing) and who married a Hinkle. They also had 3 boys Albert, AF, and Shelby Gilbert; another daughter named Sarah Jane.
I was wondering if you couldn't possibly be related?
