James F Davis home
AH so it is/was the rectory for the church. I'll have to take another look.
Re: Brunette Elizabeth Selman Davis, all I have for her is that she was born about 1830 in Maringo Alabama she married James in 1850 in Giles Tenn. (1850 census says married within the year. and died after 1890. In 1890 city directory she was living with James Frances Davis (Jr) my grandfather - named after his grandfather (her husband) Tom E. was his father. I don't know where she is buried I assume 1st St next to her husband and there is an unmarked or illegible grave next to his. Thomas Jefferson Selman (brother of Brunette)is buried there also he was the superintendent of the suspension bridge. Note you may find 2 Margaret Moore Selmans. Margaret Moore Selman (1809-1868) is his MOTHER while Margaret Jane Moore Selman (1845-1905) is his WIFE - this has led to some confusion in the past. If you have access to Ancestry.com my tree is donsanto4610 and is open if you care to look.

James F Davis home
Hi Bradford,
Thanks for the quick reply. I have been doing a Google street view and all I can see is vacant land w/ a few trees behind the church, but next door (left side facing church) is a house and a bit back from that there is a bunch of brush that may hide it, if the building is even still standing. (as of Mar. 2013)
The area looks kind of rundown in some parts.
James F Davis was the first judge in Waco but I can only find a tiny bit on him. There was another judge Davis a bit later and there is tons of stuff on him. I know the old courthouse burned down so most likely much went with it. The photos I have of the house only show some of the front yard and there are a couple taken on the porch which seems to be L shaped or 3 sided like a U. It has several large what look like Doric columns. There are several other houses in the background. My mother (born 1908) told me it was built on a bit of a mound as the area was prone to flooding, and the kids used to roll down the sides for fun. All this could have been changed of course remodel, street repaving &c. Also when her parents were married (1906) my grandmother refused to move into the place until my grandfather put in indoor plumbing (which he did) as the old privy was a 4 holer 2 for the adults and 2 for kids which they used to play inside of sometimes. She also insisted he buy all new modern furniture and get rid of all that ancient stuff. And as a final tear in my eye the attic had a chest full of Confederate money which the kids used as play money. Don S.

James F Davis home in Waco
Hi Bradford,
Sorry for not replying sooner but somehow I overlooked your message.
I was wondering where his home was. Tom Davis his son (my G Grandfather) who shot Brann lived on Dallas st. on the other side of the river. I did a google street level search but none of the existing buildings look like the one in the pictures I have.
If you would be interested in sharing information with me I would be grateful.
My Email is donsanto46@yahoo.com
Thank You.
Don S.

Can you clarify the writing on the gravesite stone on the graves for Peter Flournoy Mahone and for his wife Elizabeth in Talbot County, GA?

Deeply grateful for these images and the info being online! Myron McGhee

RE: Jeff D. Shook
TB, It was an honor to sit with Jeff, pull grass from around his grave, sweep it off and take the photo. Afterwards I thanked him for his service to us, our nation and gave him a salute. He's located at Section M, Row 2, Grave 18 if you'd like to update his plot location. Take Care and have a great upcoming week. In Your Service, Allen
