Re: Orlena Cornett/Lewis Davis

Thanks for your response.

Orlena and William had 3 children-
Infant Cornett b & d 1937
Unknown Cornett b 1940
William Theodore Cornett II b 1942-2005

I am requested Orlena's death certificate from link that Judy Artly posted for Dallas County lookups. Hopefully that can tie up some loose ends. Orlena's mother, Ida Davis (nee Harris) died in 1955 and the informant's signature on the death certificate looks like "Orlena Bidford."

The Davis surname origin is driving me crazy. I believe I found Lewis and Orlena's father, Louis Davis's Texas death certificate. He died in 1939 in Dallas County, but was buried in San Antonio National Cemetery as a veteran. His parent were listed as Moses and Annie Davis both born in Germany. And wife, Ida Davis, was listed as well but I am not 100% sure this is the same Louis Davis.

As for Leroy Davis all I have for him is the 1930 Census and the mention of him in his 1/2 brother, Lewis', obit.
