Davis, Reola born 1876 died 1908 Colored lady space 83 Notes from descendant Denise Taylor: Reola was born Reola Walthal, she was born a slave about 1876 according to the census. Her place of birth was Burkesville, Kentucky. Between the years 1880, and 1882 her family relocated to Lucas, Iowa and settled there. Reola met and married Frank Prince Davis in 1897, he was at the time a messenger in Washington D.C. Shortly after their marriage he became a Coal Miner. At some point she traveled to West Virginia where my grandmother was born and some time later she relocated to Walsenburg, Colorado. My understanding is that she had a stillbirth and died shortly after. The death was in 1908. The baby was never named. Reola had four children prior to her death. Cleo, Alta, Thelma, and Gale. My grandmother Cleo was the first and last surviving child of Reola and Frank Davis. Reola was Methodist. Her husband continued supporting his children after they moved back to Lucas, Iowa with their grandmother, however, Mr. Davis lost his life in Dawson, New Mexico in 1913.
