Betty Jack Davis
Birth: Mar. 4, 1932
Death: Aug. 2, 1953
Cincinnati
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

Country Music Singer. This Corbin, Kentucky, native met Mary Francis Penick (also known as Skeeter Davis) in high school and together they developed a famous musical duo whose success was cut short by a tragic automobile accident. They appeared on many local television shows, before moving to Detroit, in 1952, to appear on radio station WJR. Performing as the "the Davis Sisters," they received a recording contract, performed on national television , made arrangements to appear on the Grand Ole Opry and had a number one hit single, "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know" all in less than a year. In August of 1953, after performing on the "Wheeling Jamboree", the duo was returning to their homes in Kentucky, when a car accident in Cincinnati took the singer's life. Her partner, Skeeter, went on to become a Grand Ole Opry Star. (bio by: Bigwoo)
