The Life of Ora Riney Davis

Ora Davis Shaw

Ora Riney Davis was my paternal Great Grandmother.  She is the woman that I was named after and she was born in Refugio, TX to Estella Riney and George Davis.  She passed away at a young age in San Francisco, CA.  Ora was the youngest of 17 siblings born to Estella Riney.

Ora left Refugio and moved to Corpus Christi where she lived and raised her children until she moved to San Francisco, CA. in the 1940's. Ora was secretary for the National Baptist Convention and travel throughout much of her life.
