Cabinet Photograph of a Baby IDed as Gene Davis; by a Rock Port, Missouri Studio

Cabinet photograph of a baby identified on the reverse as Gene Davis.  The photograph was taken by Grebe's Star Gallery at Rock Port, Missouri.

Several possibilities exist for a Gene Davis or Eugene Davis who may have lived in the Rock Port, Missouri, area, or been taken there to visit relatives.

There's a good chance he was Jesse Gene Davis, born August 27, 1896 in Missouri, son of Jesse Hugh Davis and Lenora (Baker) Davis, "Nora".  Jesse Gene, an accountant, died in 1964 at Kansas City, Missouri and is buried in the Forest Hill Cemetery at Kansas City, Missouri.  His widow, Mrs. Cynthia Grace (Wood) Davis, was the informant on his death certificate.  Whether Cynthia  was his only wife, I don't know.   

If you have this photograph in your family collection and can provide further identification, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks!
