George - obituary
From The Oregonian, March 4, 1934:


Mr. and Mrs. George Davenport Honored at Reception.

In celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. George Davenport of Florence, Ore., were honored with a reception Friday at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Carl Southworth, at 1694 Southwest Montgomery drive, here.

Mr. and Mrs. Davenport were married at Arcadia, Kan., on March 2, 1884. On the same day they left for what was then Spokane Falls, Washington territory, where they settled on a homestead and lived for 13 years. When irrigation was developed in western farming, Mr. Davenport improved land consecutively in Clarkston, Wash., the Yakima valley and at Twin Falls, Idaho. In 1916 they moved to Oregon and settled near Eugene, where Mr. Davenport worked in the Booth-Kelly lumber mill at Springfield. Four years ago they moved to Florence, on the coast in Lane county, and there they are at home to their many friends who visit the beach.

The Davenports have a son, Herbert E., in Long Beach, Cal., and a grandson, Lawrence, there. They were unable to attend the golden wedding celebration. Another grandson, John Southworth, lives here.

Mr. Davenport was born near Bowling Green, Ky., on August 23, 1859. Mrs. Davenport, nee Clara Hammond, was born near Springfield, Ill., on July 5, 1861."
