|Claude Louis Davis|
|New York City - June 1920|
My grandfather, Claude Louis Davis, spent most of his youth in Edmonson County, Kentucky and the majority of his adult years in New York. I only found his full name written in two places - on his application for a Social Security number in 1936 and on his death certificate in 1967.
In my family tree, I recorded my grandfather's name as Claude Lewis Davis. I will need to change my grandfather's middle name in my online trees as well as on numerous blog posts. I checked Ancestry.com for other tree that include him and they all use Lewis as well. However, those trees were probably posted after mine so I'm sure I was the originator of that error. These are photos of Claude in NYC in June of 1920. It appears that he was in the Navy at that time as these photos show the same setting as some of his photographs in his Navy uniform.
