|Birth: ||Sep. 17, 1879|
|Death: ||Jan. 6, 1919|
My beautiful great-grandmother, whose time was all too brief.
Daughter of Jesse Portman and Arena Fielder Drew and wife of Charles Lee Davis. Mother of Edith Seatto, Leo Theophilus, Cleo Nanabelle, Elijah Portman, Abigail Arena, Nellie Marie, Mary Oveda, & Imogene Davis. Pregnant with her ninth child, she contracted the Spanish Flu and passed away at the age of 39. She was survived by her husband and seven of her children. She was preceded in death by her parents and her daughter Nellie.
Her grave is unmarked.
Viola married Charles Davis on 19 Sep 1900. Upon procuring their marriage license, they set out for the preacher's house. Along the way, they encountered the preacher, who was headed into town. They stopped their buggies in the middle of the road and were married on the spot. The preacher then continued on his way to town. It is unclear where Charles and Viola went. From what I've been able to gather, it was a happy (and fruitful) union.
Thank you, Michael Dunne, for sponsoring this memorial!
