Henry Snapp "Tip" Davenport was born in Cambridge, Henry County, Illinois, son of Charles Webb, Jr., and Electa Sherman Moore Davenport. He came to ArKansas City, Cowley County, KS, in 1879, to check out the local milling business for his uncle, V. Mortimer Ayres, who arrived in 1880 and built the Canal Mills.
