Looking for information on my great uncle John E. DAVIS(born 1861 in Lamar County near Pecos, TX, died when his home burned down December 12, 1947). He and his daughter (name unknown) who was killed in a car accident are buried in Voca, TX. John was know as "Wild Jones" in Voca due to his antics and a old car with an exhaust whistle. His close friend was Herman Lehman(sp?) who had been captured as a boy and lived with the indians for 6 years. John had a sister named Belle who was a Nazarene preacher. Mr. Wayne Spiller told me by phone that John was in a book titled "Ghost Towns of Texas Characters" and that he may have a picture of John with several other cowboys who had just returned from a cattle drive on the Chisholm Trail. My great grand-father was John's father by a first marriage to a Ms. Holcomb. John's father was Edward Davis, a confederate soldier under general Sibley.
