Olin W. Daviee Edna M. Daviee Mayre L Daviee

Submitted by Betty M. Daviee

Olin Welborn Daviee and Edna Verne Mitchell were married September 6, 1906, (i.e. before statehood) in Shawnee. They settled in Oklahoma City where Olin, a tinsmith, founded and operated Daviee Sheet Metal Company. They had two children, Mayre Laverne and Jack Mitchell. Family legend is that Olin added the second letter "e" to the family surname to discourage people from mistakenly adding a letter "s" to the end of the name.
