Phyllis Davis writes: My maternal grandmother’s family owned this place. I went to yearly reunions there until about ten years ago. Bob recalled: Davis landing was where I always went as a child to fish. Daddy had a 7.5 Johnson “kicker,” and I would rent one of Doc Davis’ homemade wooden jon boats. I’ve been in that cabin many times. The downstairs was a store run by “H.” Pack of crackers and some bait was usually my purchase and an R.C. Cola. Thanks for the pictures. I recently rode up river in my 50 yr. old aluminum jon boat powered by my ’94 Johnson 3 hp from Eason’s Landing to Davis Landing. This was during the drought, and the river in places was only 2′ at deepest part. Visited all the old fishing hole’s and camping spots. The river has changed a lot since the late 50’s; some old places were not the same, but it is still beautiful.

  1. My maternal grandmother’s family owned this place. I went to yearly reunions there until about ten years ago I have a photo of one during earlier times. It shows hundreds of the Davis family in attendance. They also owned the house at HalfMoon Ake.
