Passport Application - Robert Allison Davenport - 1925

Robert Allison Davenport was born in Beaver Dam 16 Sept 1874, the son of Flavius Josephus Randolphus Davenport and wife, Josephine Austin. He was living in Dawson, Texas when he applied for a passport. Mr. Davenport planned to travel to Peru and Ecuador for the purpose of erecting and repairing cotton gin machinery. It looks like he was employed by Alexander Eccles & Company, a British company that had an office in New Orleans.

I found Robert Davenport's family living in Ellis County, Texas in the 1880 census.
