Bio Changes
Everything about Luther's name and past is in question. I am pretty sure that he was not born a Davis. There has been speculation from other family members about his true past, but I have seen no proof that would satisfy me. For this reason I only publish what I absolutely know. A man calling himself Luther Kane Davis, married Leonie Almira Marden and they are the parents of Inez Marden Davis, who is the mother of [[Owen=3444 | Alden Owen]]

From FindaGrave:
 +
 +
''Luther has a very interesting family history. Luther was born to Mary Ann Bressette in the St. Lawrence New York poor house. His Birth name was John Bressette.
 +
 +
''Luther was adopted by Sarah (Davis) and her husband Henry Lewis Clukey.''
 +
 +
''Luther is first found in the 1880 census as King L Clukey. In 1900 he is living with his adopted grandparents Edward Davis listed as King L Davie (Davis).''
 +
 +
''In 1905 he marries Leonie Marden and states that his name is Luther K Davis b TN father Henry Mother Violet Benson or Page. We are unsure why he changed his name from Clukey to Davis, and made up a new family, but Luther was not born in TN and his adopted father was Henry but not Henry Davis.''
