There is a WALTER W. Davis, born Nov, 1889, age 10, listed in the 1900 Worcester Co census, Girdletree (series T623, roll 630, page 185). He is the son of Elizza Davis, born May, 1849, age 51. She is the head of the house, a widow, the mother of two children, both living, and both living with her. The other child is a son, John B. Davis, born March, 1878, age 22. All are listed as white. Elizza doesn't appear to have an occupation, unless it's "self". Son John is listed as a boat man.

I can't find a Walter W., or a William W, or John B. Davis in the later censuses in MD. I do find a William W. Davis, in 1930 in Snow Hill, age 50, but this is probably the son of a Willam and Clara Davis, born Nov, 1880.

In 1910, though, I do find a Eliza Jane Davis, age 61, living in Baltimore with her sister-in-law, also named Eliza Jane - Eliza Jane Colmary, age 86. Eliza Jane Davis shows as the mother of two children, neither living in 1910. The census listing is at series T624, roll 556, page 216.

After 1910 I can't find Eliza Jane Davis.

I am not related, but hope this helps you.
