Orlena Cornett/Lewis Davis
Posted by: J Davis (ID *****7563) Date: February 05, 2009 at 13:01:18
  of 1986

Looking for anyone with information about a Orlena Cornett nee Davis. She is the sister of my great grandfather, Lewis Deems Davis, born 11/22/1911 or 1912 in Denton, TX. He was murdered 9/14/1941 in Dallas, TX in what was described by the Dallas Morning Star as a "Gangland Slaying" Orlena signed the death certificate.

Their mother was Ida Harris, 7/27/1880 - 7/24/1955 and father was a Louis/Lewis Davis born in Germany. They also had a 1/2 brother, Leroy Davis who married an woman named Opal.

Orlena married William Theodore Cornett before 1941 in TX, most likely in Dallas.

She was born 12/10/1918 and died 3/16/2006.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
