Note: Initial family started with an import from WorldConnect. Dates and places seemed off but after looking across all the census's for this period, I'm convinced there is only one Elias J Davenport and Amanda

I am 18 years old. I live in the 4th District of Jackson County. Toler [or Took ?] Davenport is my father. E. J. Davenport is the way my father signs his name.
Oliver Davenport [his mark]

Deposition taken: April 1907.
I am 57 years old. I live at Haydensburg in the 4th Civil District of Jackson County. I am a farmer.
Well, I'd say that I lived in one and one half miles of Joel [Forkum] for four years before his death.
My son-in-law, Billie White, and I think my son Oliver was there.
. . . he [Joel Forkum] also said that they had all left him but these two boys [Charlie and Ed].
