Ella Salena Rodgers Davis
Birth: May 18, 1876
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 29, 1967
South Carolina, USA

Ella is the daughter of William Alexander Rodgers and Sarah "Sallie" Elizabeth Long. She was born in the Dunklin township of Greenville county, SC.

She married Jesse Davenport McCuen and they are the parents of Roy Leslie McCuen, Boyce Harold McCuen, Sr, Ralph McCuen and Jesse Vasco McCuen. Ella's husband, Jesse, died in a cotton mill accident in GA and their son, Ralph, died the following year when a rock he'd tossed into the air struck him on the head. Ella and her remaining sons moved to FL briefly where she gave birth to Lois Christine, whose father is unknown.

Ella then moved her children to SC and married Frank Davis, an older widower. She and Frank Davis are the parents of William Frank Davis, Jr., Margo Davis and Marion Davis. At the time of her death she was the oldest surviving widow of a Confederate veteran in SC. Frank Davis was her second husband and she his second wife.
They owned a farm 12 miles outside of Greenville on the Anderson Road.
