DAVIS-DAVIDSON FAMILY

I believe this was taken around 1935, give or take. The far right of the photo, they are James William Davis, son Walter James Davis and wife Margaret Adelaide Davidson Davis. I don't know who the other people are, but I know they are from the Davidson family.

We think that Margaret Adelaide was pregnant with their daughter, Helen Adelaide Davis in this photo. Margaret Adelaide Davidson Davis, she died on 13 Dec 1936; Walter was born on 16 Nov 1930; Helen born on 25 Nov 1935.

The photo was taken at the old Stone House in Kortright, Delaware, New York.
