Noble Davis, Barbour County, AL

The Journey Continues……
Noble’s parents were Henry Davis (Davies) and Emma Thomas. He married Mamie (?Bishop) 11/30/1905 in Barbour County. She is listed in the marriage record book as “Minnie Bishop” and on the 1910 census as “Mimie” Davis. Noble and Mamie had two children; Harry (H.B.), and McKinley (Mack). Noble was born approximately 1885, Mamie, approximately 1885, H.B. was born approximately 1908 and McKinley (Mack), was born in 1909. H.B. was misspelled as “Aitchbue” on the 1910 census.The family later moved to Chicago, IL. where my great uncle, Elisha “Honey” Davis took him under his wing.

Nobel worked for the railroad as a Fire Knocker for many years. He died in 1975 in Chicago. Harry died around 1985 and McKinley died in 1991. Mamie died sometime prior to Noble. No info is known about Noble’s parents Henry or Emma (Thomas) Davis.
