My Dad Ken Davis wearing his signature Pendleton jacket on a GE job site.

Although we share the same first name, his middle name was Gallusha and my Mom saved me from that…and from being called Junior!

My Dad, Ken Davis the Elder, was an engineer by training, but he came up through the GE apprentice program after a stint in the military and time in White Sands, New Mexico working on U2 rockets.

He could have worn a white shirt and tie and directed the ‘laborers,’ but he liked to get his hands dirty and show them “how to do it right!” He was a Top Man! ~shared by @stokrod

SonI’ve always thought my sister resembled more of my dad side of the family. This photo is my grandpa Wesley’s sister “Mary”. Who thinks my sister looks identical to her! Hair, eyes, face! Insane! I think this is her twin instead of me haha #family #history #presley #presnell Thanks, crenecenter3 http://ift.tt/1CeKO57 @savefamilyphotos

My mother in law always has a new stack of family photos she puts aside for me to look at. She knows exactly what I like. #savefamilyphotos

“They always wanted children. I think they were closer as a couple because they weren’t able to have them. They were very romantic.” Thanks, ladypinkstone http://ift.tt/1vyKD2X @savefamilyphotos

I finally have it! My 3rd great grandfather, Thomas William Pate in his Confederate uniform! Thanks to my cousin, Janet Parks Van Dyke! Grandpa Tom was shot in the left arm in the Battle of Wartrace breaking the bones just above the elbow. He was helped from the field by Monte Oglesby. This photo must have been taken after the injury resulting in the enlarged state of his hand. @ancestry @familysearch #savefamilyphotos #williamsonco #history_matters #family #civilwar Thanks, smarttimages http://ift.tt/1qUA4Uo @savefamilyphotos

Grandpa John, I never met him and Ma lost contact with him when she was five. Some recent ancestral research along with a “breakthrough”, has uncovered lots of new information about him and photos not seen before, which in turn has revealed a resemblance shared between him and me. Thanks, pedrov_dog http://ift.tt/1ptCNoE @savefamilyphotos
