Harriet Nora(h), who was known throughout life as Nora or "Nonie," was a daughter of William Stubblebine and Annie Victoria (Stuart) Stubblebine. She was born 22 December 1875 in Berks County, Pennsylvania.[1]

In the 1880 U.S. Census, Nora Stubblebine was recorded as 4 years old, living in Caernarvon Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, in the household of her father William (age 27 and a farmer), mother Annie (age 28), sister Ella (age 6) and brothers John C. and William (ages 3 and 1, respectively).[2]

Nora's formal education ended after the eighth grade.[3]

On 28 May 1894, Harriet Norah Stubblebine was baptized as an adult in the Central Methodist Church of Reading, Pennsylvania.[4] On 9 December of that same year, Nora Stubblebine was received into membership in that church.[5]

At the 1910 U.S. Census, 33-year-old Nora H. Stubblebine was recorded at 175 North 15th Street in Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, in the household of Milton H. Kocher and Mary R. Kocher.[6] Mary Kocher was a first cousin of Custer Wingard, husband of Nora's sister Ella. The Kocher household was a boarding house, where Nora was described as "servant" and "housekeeper."[6]

Nora Stubblebine was married to Harry William Davis, as his second wife, in the parsonage of St Paul´s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Millersburg, Pennsylvania, on 12 March 1919.[7][8] Harry Davis' first wife, Malinda (Long) Davis who had died in 1917, was a sister of Mary Kocher and a first cousin of Ella (Stubblebine) Wingard's husband.

No children were born to the marriage of Harry and Nora (Stubblebine) Davis, but Nora was stepmother and grandmother to the Davis children and grandchildren.

Nora Davis died 9 February 1973, at age 97, and is buried in East Harrisburg Cemetery, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.[9]
