Davenport's of Washington County, North Carolina Updated November 9, 2000
About Our Family Research
I have tried several times to find more information about my father's side of my family, with little success. I have been successful in finding a bit of information on my grandfather's mother--Edy (Staton) Davenport. For the past 30 years, my Davenport family have family reunions every Memorial Day weekend in various states. Our next reunion will be in Norfolk, Virginia in the year 2001.
David Solomon Davenport (28 KB) This is a picture of my grandfather--David Solomon Davenport. My grandmother, Learonia Downing Davenport was his second wife. They had approximately 10 children together, one of whom was my father, John Lee Davenport, Sr. Family stories suggest that David Solomon was from the Washington County, North Carolina area, and his first wife and him had at least one daughter--I believe her name was Mildred.
