According to an article in LIGHTHOUSE DIGEST by Dawn Taylor on May 2008:
Davaney Farrow Jennette was Ms. Taylor's great grandfather. He was lighthouse keeper at Cape Fear Lighthouse which was built in 1903. He was appointed keeper on Mary. 6, 1919. He died 5 Dec. 1932.He married Muriel Thompson.
This is not my family, but a person interested in Dan Coleman on www.worldconnect.rootsweb.com, who has posted information about Muriel Thompson.
Hope this helps someone looking for this family. I am interested in the parents of Hanson Kelly Ruark, Sr. - lighthouse keeper of Prices Creek Lighthouse in Southport, NC during the Civil War.
