Interesting post, but confusing. One of us is confused!
SAMUEL F. DAVIS is my great grandfather. He married Elizabeth Ellen Blubaugh at St. Lukes in 1880 and had his first 4 children baptized at St. Lukes.
Charles Raymond, Mary Ellen, Francis Walter and Francis Henry.
I have been compiling our family history for about 20 years and just last year published a book. In that book I claimed that both Francis' had died before the 1900 census as they never appears. It was just this past week that I was contacted by first a researcher and then a distant cousin who seems to know that these boys both survived and were given up before Samuel and Eliz left for Kansas. We are still trying to determine why and trying to make sure we have located the right 2 guys.
Francis Walter - later called Walter was left with the Andrew/Alexander and Ellen (Martha ellen Losh)Durbin's - a childless couple.
Francis Henry (later referred to as Frank by his relataives, but shown as Henry in census records) was left with (for lack of better explanation) JOhn P. Breckler and his wife Flora Ann Sapp who were his godparents.
The boys are both found with these families in the 1900 census.
So, I am not sure if you are referring to a different Walter F. Davis married to a different Elizabeth Blubaugh, or if you meant Samuel F. Davis in your query...
