Emily L "Birdie" McCorkle Davis
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 18, 1879
Death: Nov. 24, 1960

Daughter of John D. and Eugenia McLemore McCorkle, born in Louisiana. She was known as Birdie. Her father died probably after the family moved to Texas, but his death date and grave have yet to be found. Birdie married John Olson ( probaby in Waco, Texas) and had a daughter Louise who was born in 1908 while her parents lived in Bisbee, Arizona. Birdie was a widow living in Dallas, Texas with her daughter, brothers and mother in the 1910 census. Her daughter Louise died in 1912 in Dallas, but was interred in Waco, Texas. This leads me to believe that John D. McCorkle, Birdie's father, is interred in the same cemetery in Waco;however, the cemetery office there has no record of John D. McCorkle. Birdie later married John Glen Davis. She had no more children that I have ever heard of.
Her father was John David McCorkle, son of Thomas M. and Louvicy Smith McCorkle. He was born in Marengo County, Alabama, but moved to Richland Parish, Louisiana as a young man. There he met and married Eugenia McLemore and started his family. The family left Louisiana and moved to Texas sometime between 1890 and 1900. In the 1900 census, Eugenia is in Waco, Texas, a widow. It is not yet known when and where John David McCorkle died. To follow Birdie's ancestors go to the memorial for John David's father Thomas M. McCorkle #77221662.
