Georgiana Jones Davis
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 15, 1891
New York, USA
Death: May 10, 1952
New York, USA

George A. Davis Jr's wife. She married GAD Jr during his baseball years. The marriage infuriated Stallings, the Yankees big cheese and he traded GAD Jr. to the Braves as a result. Georgiana (called "Kiddo" by everyone) was a practical joker and a Suffragette. She was the first in her circle to raise her skirts above the ankle, and be seen in public smoking, drinking, and driving a car. She was a voice for women's rights early in the century. Since her marriage was considered "high profile" for the day, this took a lot of courage. (Info supplied by Suzan Kissee - her Granddaughter)
