Palmer; Benj. Cleaver, J. P. Wit: John P Graves & C. P. Glover #2233 pg 515.

Interesting that on sister Brunetta (Palmer) McKee's marriage to Monroe Cleaver, 21 Mar 1880, the witnesses were M Palmer and T J Davis.2 Thomas and Emma M (--?--) were married 1884. Thomas J. Davis died 2 November 1950 , in Silverton, Marion County, Oregon.3
      After Mattie's death, Thomas married Emma (--?--). They had three boys, according to census accounts and death records: Lester and Lloyd about whom I know nothing, and Gaylord Claude, who moved to Texas and was a musician. He died in 1979.
