From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark:Alice Davis Regan

These three items were found in the files and albums kept by Marguerite Cook Clark. Marguerite's mother, Maggie Martin Cook, labeled both photos. 

Alice Mae Davis was the youngest daughter of Henry Jefferson Davis and Eliza C. Wimberly.  She was born on June 17, 1884 and her father died of pneumonia just six month's after her birth.  

Maggie Cook and Alice Davis 
Alice's family remained in the home built by her father. The family lived in very close proximity to Maggie Martin's family as well my great-grandfather's brother, Joseph Bryan, and his wife, Sarah Wimberly, half-sister to Alice's mother. 

On December 6, 1903, Alice married Joe Bryant Regan, son of Reddick Bryan Regan and Sarah Elizabeth Gardner. Joe was a grandson of John Regan and a great-grandson of Elizabeth S. Regan Bryan. 

Alice and Joe lived in the Lee Community when they were first married and in 1919 purchased the Stewart Hotel and established the Regan Hotel. They sold the hotel in 1938 and built a home on the edge of town where Joe ran a small dairy. 

Alice and Joe raised three daughters and three of their grandchildren. 

Alice died on December 6, 1958 and Joe died a few months later on April 18, 1959. They are both buried in the Providence Cemetery in Ringgold, Bienville Parish, Louisiana.
