RE: Davis family
Hi John,
I'm following up on our previous contact, I'd be pleased to compare notes on William Davis and family when you have the chance. I suspect that he had a son Garrett who died in the Revolution -- is there any family tradition about that?

false William Davis information
Hello, I am a descendant of William Davis, and I have been trying to undo a lot of myths and false information about him and his children. I have done a lot of research in the Pittsylvania County records, and I've been adding my findings at, starting here:

Please contact me if you're interested in comparing notes.

RE: Transfer
I understand now. I was confused by the difference in first names. Transfer made.

RE: Transfer
Uhm, I'm confused... Did you mean Bessie Irene Cline Davis? If so, her memorial is already yours.

Thank you. Transfers done.

RE: Aulbin and Nellie Davis
Please move your photos to the existing memorials, delete the duplicates, and send a note to me requesting a transfer. I'll gladly send them your way. Just in case you do not know, creating duplicate memorials is unacceptable to findagrave.

RE: Henry Lawson Biscoe
Well great, that is my hope when searching the newspapers to find some treasures that someone will enjoy. I get to a standstill with my family, but like the searching, so onto others.
Very distinguished man!
Happy I could help, Betty

Major Henry L. Biscoe
just wanted to let you know I was researching deaths in Pensacola, FL through Chronicling of American Library of Congress newspapers and came acrossed the photo and article on Major Biscoe, so I posted to your findagrave memorial, which was published in the Washington, DC "Washington Times" paper, April 1905. If for some reason you would prefer it not be posted let me know.

RE: Harry Earl Biscoe
The photo was scanned from the book "A Military Album Containing over One Thousand Portraits of Commissioned Officers who served in the Spanish American War", published in 1902. It's basically a photo album that just contains photos of officers. Unfortunately it doesn't have any biographical information.

For information on Biscoe you might want to order a partial printout of a microfilm from the National Archives in Washington. Microfilm # "M 1328" Abstracts of Service Records of Naval Officers 1829-1924 contains some info on Biscoe. His entry is in Volume 19, starting on page 111. I don't know if the Archives staff can make these print outs. If not, you might be able to arrange a loan through your local LDS (Mormon) Church family history center.
Good luck in your research,
