George Thomas “Mickey” Davenport

Uncle Mickey is my only living Aunt or Uncle.  And the one that I know the least about. But I have learned a bit through my research and chat with his daughter Kristine.  So here you go:

Uncle Mickey was born George Thomas Davenport on 10 February 1933 in White Bear Lake, Ramsey County, Minnesota.  He was the youngest of 6 six children and born 4 years after my father Frank.  He had four older sisters Olive, Lois, Barb and Marian.  His dad, our grandpa, died in 1945 when he was 12 years old so he would have probably lived with his mom Muriel, our grandma, in Minnesota.  There are some stories of him being in Bay City for a bit but at some point he moved to California, because:

He married Loretta Mae Stone in Butte County, California on 9 July 1952.  They have a son Robert Allen Davenport born 3 November, 1953 and a daughter Teresa “Terry” Lynn Davenport born 8 May 1957 in Salt Lake City, Utah.   Teresa passed away on 8 August 2003.  Kristine has confirmed this to me as good information, so lo and behold we have two more first cousins that we never knew about (or at least I never knew about).  Here are a couple of pictures I found of Uncle Mickey, one of which is a picture of him with Loretta.  And also a yearbook picture (top row, 4th from the right) with Loretta in it:

I am not sure how long he lived in Salt Lake City, and I did not find a divorce record from Loretta, but I know that he married Juanita Lois Urbano about 1963 and she is the mother of Kristine.  Here is a yearbook picture of Juanita:

I have some somewhat conflicting information regarding his divorce from Juanita, but I have a marriage record between Uncle Mickey and Mary Lou Limon on 6 October 1979 (this is also confirmed by Kristine). I do not believe they are together anymore and I am unclear on any other information.

It would be fun some day to actually meet my first cousin Robert Allen.  And I do know that Teresa did marry a Paul Evans and they appear to have had two children born in the 1980’s.

I guess I need a road trip to California!
