The 1930 Census shows they had a son, 1 month old at census time, named John Bunyon Davis, Jr. I am trying to obtain copy of obituaries of John & Elvie and have consultede the White Funeral Home whe was in charge of arrangements. Presently I am trying to contact John B. Davis, Jr. who corresponded with the White Funeral Home following the death oh his mother in 2001. John, Jr. ilived in Chandler, TX in 2001 on Garrett Street. I have called his phone number in Chandler but it appears to be out of service.
