On October 3, 1968, forty-four years ago today, Mary Magdelene “Linnie” (Williams) Davis (1883-1968), my 2nd great grandmother, died in Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon. She was buried next to her husband, William, in Lincoln Memorial Park in Portland.
Linnie was born in Richmond, St. Croix Co., Wisconsin in 1883 the the daughter of Patrick H. Williams (1854-1936) and Betsy “Bettie” Seely (1858-1947). In 1906, she married William Phylitis Davis (1876-1960), with whom she had two daughters. One of these daughters, Maxine (my paternal great grandmother), they adopted in 1912; and the other, Virginia, was born a few years later in 1915.
