F. M. Davis Family

F. M. Davis Farm

This is a picture of the F.M. Davis farm just north of downtown Ft. Worth. It was located at the current site of the intersection of Meacham Blvd. and Interstate 35W. There is a small creek on the north side of the Cracker Barrel resturant which I have pics of also.

My Grandfather, Francis Marion DAVIS was born in Union County, Georgia, June 17, 1877 and came to Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas around 1900 where his Uncle John DAVIS and family had moved from Georgia. He bought a farm near Ringgold, Clay County, Texas. He married my Grandmother Bernice Julia TOAL on November 6, 1906 in Henrietta, Clay Co. TX. Bernice was born September 10, 1892 in Forney, Texas to Henry and Mary HUTCHINS TOAL. Soon after their marriage, F.M. and Bernice Davis moved to the farm north of Fort Worth. They lived their about three years before moving to Foard County, Texas and later moved to Roger Mills County, Oklahoma in 1912. Several of my Grandmother's Toal siblings lived in Fort Worth and are buried in various cemeteries there.
