People: The Davis Family

The Davis family at 'Springfield'

The above photograph has been kindly sent to us by Deborah Hodgson, the daughter of Marie Bennett. The photograph shows Daniel and Emmeline Davis and their children outside their farmhouse 'Springfield' believed to be in 1922. 'Springfield' is in Lower Middle Hill in Pensilva.
