In Reply to: FILES in Texas by Thomas C. Greenwood, III of 382

Elizabeth "Bessie" McRae was born in 1843 in Alabama (perhaps Mobile, where her parents frequently visited from their estate near Biloxi, Mississippi). She grew up in Jackson County, Mississippi. Her father died in 1865 and her mother followed in 1866. While one of her brothers remained in Mobile, Alabama, Bessie married and moved to Texas with their younger sister, Mary Ann McRae. Bessie's husband was Robert C. Files of Houston. Their daughter, Coralie Files, was born 7 Sept 1860. Robert C. Files died before 1920 and Bessie died after 1920. Coralie married on 14 Nov 1882 to John Robert Davis (3 June 1855-1906)) and had three children: John Robert Davis, Jr. (b. 1 June 1884) who lived in Toledo, OH; Coralie Stuart Davis (2 Aug 1885); and John L. Davis, born abt 1901 in Mexico.
