Biography provided by his granddaughter, Diane.

James P. Davie was born on 13 Dec 1896 in Sulphur Springs, Hopkins Co., TX to Margaret Trice Pickens (Maggie) and James Ashburn Davie, a cotton buyer from Kenton, Obion Co., TN. His father died before 1900 when he and his mother were living in Durant, Ok. with his aunt and uncle Birdie Pickens Maloney and Jesse Maloney.

By 1910, James was living with his mother and stepfather, Frank Harter at 112 Trinidad St. in Dallas. They soon moved to the White Rock Area where Frank Harter established a dairy and James worked for him delivering milk. James attended the Reinhardt schools where he was known as a good baseball player.

In 1920, James married Alice Groves Davie. They lived on Hudson St. in Dallas and then moved to Victor St. where their son James Pickens Davie, Jr. was born. Prior to 1927, James and Alice moved to Harter Rd. near the dairy and built a home near that of his mother and stepfather. Daughter Margaret (Peggy) was born here in 1927. The family attended Grace United Methodist Church in Dallas.

J. P. was in poor health for several years prior to his death from heart disease.
