Emory's too-short life saw travel and adventure, even before he was born.
Emory's parents Nathaniel and Eunice left their home in Tompkin's County, N.Y., to move to Michigan when Emory was five months in the womb. For the next month he travelled with the family by covered wagon in winter. Three months after they arrived in Michigan, he was born. (See Nathaniel's bio for details about the eventful and difficult trek.)
His first home was a log cabin, and his early life was difficult, until his industrious father was able to make a good life for the family. Eventually the Davenports were one of the most successful families in the township. (See Nathaniel's bio.)
Emory's siblings would include Wallace (1835-1913), Hannah Jane (1836-?), Mary Caroline (1838-?), Nathaniel Jr. (1843-1863), Betsy Melvina (1845-1881), Eunice Almeda (1847-?) and Esther Loretta.
