Here is a picture of my grandmother, Laura Suffern (Livingston) Davis (1891-1967), my father, Howland Davis (1915-2000), my grandfather Howland Shippen Davis (1886-1969) and my aunt, Katherine Livingston Davis (1917-1983; married name Stonington). The photo was taken approximately 1918/19 based on the age of my aunt. My grandfather served in France during WWI as an officer.

  1. I love the old photos that are posted, many of which have fine detail. However, you are not providing links to the rather small images to get a full-blown image.

    Will you please link the modestly large thumbnails to genuinely large photos worthy of the details?

    Thanks!

  2. How lucky to have such a great photo of your great great grandparents, but I would suggest due to the dress style of Elizabeth that the photo was taken in the 1870′s. You might want to investigate the photographer and see when he was in business to narrow down the date.

  3. Hello,

    Been looking for pieces of the puzzle, slowly but surely and wondering if these Davis’ are related to the Davis’ I’m looking for ? Mathilda Davis, also from the area your looking for ? Mathilda married my G G Great Grandfather Lewis (Louis) Keys. Mathilda was born in Kentucky, also known as Eugenia (Davis) Keys married 7 Sept. 1873 in St. Louis MO.

  4. I am wondering if Howland was a family name. My father’s mother’ maiden name was Howland. They were from Eastport, LI, NY. I have been searching for more information on her family.

  5. Hello:
