    2 Jan 1876 - 14 Jun 1962

    This is my great grandma.  Davis was her first married name.  In 1918 after the death of first husband Alex Davis in 1916, she married Henry Oliver Marcum [and was married to him] until his death in 1936.  He is buried at the Chute Cemetery.
    --  L Ultey, Arkansas Gravestones, 22 April 2017,

    Cyrus Lester Mcswain Sr, Tissie's son, was married to my grandma's sister Eunice Davis and Kevin [McSwain]'s wife Gina comes through the Criswell line from Lavada Mae West.  Lavada Mae was daughter of Charles Winston West.  He was Eunice Davis' uncle.

    Eunice and my grandma Lela Bridgette Davis were daughters of great grandma Maggie West, who married Alex Davis first and had several girls.   When Alex died she married Henry Oliver Marcum.  H O had two kids by his marriage to a Rosie?  (I can't find what her last name was.)  She died then H O married Maggie West then H O's boy Roy Marcum married Lela Davis, Maggie West Davis' daughter.

    So I wound up with two great grandparent sets that way on them.  Roy and Lela's daughter Maggie Marcum (mom) married my dad Floyd Utley.
