I am currently doing a lot of research on World War II service in my family. Look for the launch of another website dedicated to this topic sometime next spring.

Sherman Harry Davis Pocket Watch
This pocket watch was given to me by my uncle, Sherman Patrick Davis, when I graduated from the University of Delaware in 1999. It belonged to my great grandfather, Sherman Harry Davis. He passed away 5/5/1992 in Tyler, Smith County, Texas. I am lucky to have this among my family belongings. I’ve kept it locked away for many years and will pass it down to my son when he graduates from Texas A&M University in 2027. If you have any family treasures you’d like to contribute, please take a picture of the item and email it to me.
