My condolences on the loss of your mother/grandmother. My mother was Opal Davison Maloney, daughter of LeRoy and Bessie Davison of Diamond, PA. Lee was brother to Riley Davison. Was Riley Jack's father? I think Linda Loftin has been in touch with some of us here in PA. I would love to hear from anyone. ( Again, my sympathy for your loss.
