In Reply to: B. F. Davis by Jean McSwain of 1449

There is an article in the Heritage Book of Burke County about Benjamin Franklin Davis. He was born 23 Oct. 1853 and died 7 May 1920. He had a mercantile business with his brother, Isaiah Iverson Davis; it was known as I.I. Davis and Brother. This partnership last for 15 years until
B. F. Davis established his own clothing and millinery store. It was known as B.F. Davis & Son. This B.F. Davis married Mary Low Ballew in 1879 and they had 7 children:
Lily Mae Davis, John Moore Davis, Benjamin F. Davis,Jr.,Edwin Bonner Davis, Annie Rose Davis, Harold Wilson Davis, and Charles Vernon Davis.
Also mentioned in the article is: Benjamin Davis who married Rebecca Harrell; their children were Catherine, Martha, Elnathan, Patience, Jane, Joshiah, Isaiah, Benjamin, and Michajah. Does any of this match your B.F. Davis? Hope it helps.
