WW1 Draft Reg, living in Davidson Co, TN says "Jim Davenport, father"
Home in 1920: Redboiling Springs, Macon, Tennessee (living with Aunt Sarah Davenport and Uncle Thomas Huffines- Sarah is his father James' sister)
(possibly died before 1930 - cannot find in 1930 census)

I assumed with nickname of Toad he was named after Uncle Toad, but perhaps given name was "Toad D Davenport"
