Family of Davenport, Thomas Jefferson and Sneed, Elzia Parrit

Married Wife Sneed, Elzia Parrit ( * 1871-08-08 + 1934-11-05 )
Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage 1894-02-17 Jackson, TN   2a

in Jackson County, TN throughout.

Note - living next door to Elsie's parents in 1900. Very hard to read! (big black smudge)
but as of June 7, 1900, they clearly have 3 children: Martha, Henry, and "Isaiah" (ancestry.com's OCR - I see more like Doria - definitely a girl; in 1910, "Lorrie" is next older child from Harmon, so that must be her). But note birthdates are inconsistent with Harmon's WW1 Draft Reg.
