Just wanted to compliment you on the photos you post and especially that you include the captions.

Thanks!!

The Rev. Silas Dean Davenport
I will scan the image of him this week. You may want to go ahead and contact St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Waco for permission if you might use it in a publication. I can't imagine the church not wanting to preserve this early photograph. The photo is in its cenetennial history by the late Luella Conger Boynton.
I believe his memorial window was in a previous edifice? The Churchman has been scannned. There is a lengthy description of the window. I used to live down the street from St. Matthew's Cathedral when I was in graduate school. I've admired the windows many times.
Thanks,
Bradford Willis

Old Waco
The Rev. Silas Dean Davenport
Greetings:

I saw your note about the Rev. Silas D. Davenport. I placed a memorial for his first wife yesterday. I asked the lady who has the memorial for his second wife to link her also as his spouse. On his memorial, they are not in correct order.

I have a copy of a history of St. Paul's Church which has a small photograph of him. Let me know if you wish me to scan it. If you wish to publish it, you would need to contact the church for permission, as you already know.

Also, I'm sure you have seen this:

On June 20, 1880, a memorial window over the Altar of St. Matthew's Cathedral in Dallas was unveiled and dedicated. At the bottom of this window was the following inscription, "Erected by the children of St. Matthew's Sunday-school, to the glory of God, and in memory of the Rev. Silas Dean Davenport, who entered rest January 1st, 1877."
This was found in the July 3, 1880 The Churchman.

Best,
Bradford Willis

The original msg I left only "asked" for U to check out her entry, no "demand". No disrespect ment, the entry U put in had one name, the tombstone had another. I've been doing this type of stuff since 1995, just trying to get the info correct in case someone might be searching for her, that's all that was intended to be, a request.
We crossed wires, my fault entirely because my intent was not very clear on the first msg.
I thought that family might have been related to you and if U had one name in your records, I thought I should let U know it was different at the cemetery.
Rest assured if I run across a conflict of info again and the memorial belongs to U then I will not contact and upset U again.
I'm gone, James Coston
