Davenport, Beverly Floyd

Birth Name Davenport, Beverly Floyd
Call Name Floyd
Birth Name Belvin

    in WW1 Draft Reg

Gender male
Age at Death 75 years, 4 months, 17 days


from researcher Bonnie Davenport -
"He was born in Russell County, VA and left home at a very early age saying he'd not be heard from again..... He wasn't until maybe a year or so ago when I finally found his family who knew nothing of his past."

Home in 1900: Barkers Ridge, Wyoming, West Virginia (as Floyd, born Aug 1879, cannot read or write)

Note: Belvin Floyd Davenport of Terre Haute born 3 years before, but I do not see any other person in preceding census'. Must be a story why he added 3 years to his age - avoiding WW1 Draft?

hmmm... Beverly F Davenport is clearly born Aug 1879 in the 1880 census, but he filled out WW1 Draft Reg as Aug. 15, 1876

Death 1952 Terra Haute, Vigo, IN
