John "Jackie" Davis

The only Grandchild of John A. Davis. This is John "Jackie" Davis. He was the son of Charles J. Davis and Mae Philips Davis. Charles died in 1931 and I will do another post about that, but Jackie died only a few years later. He was born on May 10, 1924 and he died on August 6, 1938. He was only 14 years old. I still have no idea what he died of. Does any Alumni out there on web know?

UPDATE 11-1-06 From Dr. Barackman's book: "Death struck the Davis family on August 6, 1938, when Jack [John C.], the son of Charles and Mae Davis and the nephew of Gordon Davis, died from spinal meningitis. He was 14 years old. It had been anticipated that he would be the successor to Dr. Gordon Davis, but this was not God's plan."

I am still looking for more information if anyone knows.
