|Carol Weldon||Oral Davis 110934798|
First thank you for the work you've done. Second I think the date for Oral is his BD. In looking at the picture of the gravestone, I would have thought it was both birth & death for him since his parents have both dates on the gravestone. But Oral is living in 1900, in the census [below] his birth is May 1887. In relooking at my transcription [& image] I noticed that at 13 he can't read or write. His sister still at home can. Mary in the 1910 census is living with her son Albert & his family. I did a quick search for Oral in the 1910 and don't find him.
