Sheila Hamlin Owens sent this picture to me and was kind enough to allow me to post it on my site. I'll let her describe it in her own words:
"Adults left to right, according to my father were: Ike Davis, wife Bettie (Betsy/Elizabeth) Davis Davis, mother-in-law Frankie Hatfield Davis, Ike & Bettie's daughter Frankie Davis Hamlin. Children were Ike and Bettie's Son's.....In order of birth, they were Ben, Thomas (died young), Press, John, Jim. Note: other Davises have info that says the one who Dad said was Frankie Davis (younger Frankie), his mother, was actually a Lily Davis Carpenter. I do not know the answer to this mystery. Another note: Notice that the older boy is holding a gun. In the copy of this picture that other relatives have, the gun is scratched out."
