Looking for anyone with information about a Orlena Cornett nee Davis.She is the sister of my great grandfather, Lewis Deems Davis, born 11/22/1911 or 1912 in Denton, TX.He was murdered 9/14/1941 in Dallas, TX in what was described by the Dallas Morning Star as a "Gangland Slaying"Orlena signed the death certificate.
Their mother was Ida Harris, 7/27/1880 - 7/24/1955 and father was a Louis/Lewis Davis born in Germany.They also had a 1/2 brother, Leroy Davis who married an woman named Opal.
Orlena married William Theodore Cornett before 1941 in TX, most likely in Dallas.
