Family members said he never had a gravestone but this is where they remembered him being buried. His death date has been questioned but I believe the above date is the correct one. For more information on this please contact me.

In a letter from Owen Davenport [grandson] to his brother, Hugh, written about 1936 he says "I went back to Ingles this morning and located and marked grandpa's grave. Mr. Donahoo and I took the plot of the older part of the cemetery and want to the cemetery. In the north east corner of the old part and just east of the driveway, where Frank Foster and his wife both said Grandpa was buried, was a half lot with an unidentified grave on it. There was some native stone placed around it; one at the head and one at the foot and several along the sides. The one at the head was a foot square and five or six inches thick. It was partly tiped over. Mr. Donahoo turned it over and on the under side was a letter D about three inches high. I am sure it was grandpa's grave and and those were the stones placed there by Uncle Andrew. Mr Donahoo did not think there was any doubt about it and placed grandpa's name on the plot. I put a marker I had made at the head. It is two pieces of three quarter inch galvanized pipe about three feet long, driven in the ground about half way. Between them, at the top I firmly fastened a sheet of galvanized iron about six by twelve inches. I printed the name on the sheet iron, then outlined the letters by perforations made with a small punch. Then I painted it white."
