This is all very helpful!
I am related through Joseph Davis - he is my great grandfather. After Mary Duling died he married Ruth Artemissa Blair Norman Rice Emerson - yes she had already gone through three husbands!
My grandmother, Ellen Adele Davis, was one of the children from this marriage. She married Allen Nirole Jolliff and they had four children - my mother being the youngest.
I have a wonderful old album of pictures with a list of who is who in my mother's writing. I assume she sat down with her mother and got the information. Trying to figure out who people are has been a challenge as my mother knew next to nothing about her family and she died in 1975 leaving only this list with the pictures for me to go on when I got interested in family history.
But my grandmother obviously stayed in touch with Mary Ensley Davis Mulkey and a number of the pictures are of her and her children.
I've only just begun to learn about the Mulkey family with all the preachers who have been written up. I found a grave for a Joseph Davis in a Mulkey Cemetery when I was in Kansas in 2002 and the marker indicated that he had been a preacher of the word for 40 years (that is not exact). I can't yet prove that it is my Joseph Davis who is buried there but it is a real possiblilty.
Mary Ensley Davis ended up living in Oklahoma with her oldest son from her first marriage and is buried there in Lamont, Oklahoma.
I am glad to share what informationn I have if anyone is interested.
