SIMMONS posted by Mary Givens on Friday, July 7, 2006

A listing for Odie Simmons in the 1930 Parker County, Texas census indicates she is an inmate in the K of P Home. Can someone explain what this residence was?

Kof P is probably Knights of Pythias Widows and Orphans home in Weatherford, TX. The cornerstone was laid in 1907 and it was finished 2 years later. At first all children admitted to the home had to be children of a Pythian father and be sponsored by a Pythian Lodge. This was later changed so that any child sponsored by a Pythian Lodge could be admitted provided they meet certain other requirements. A postcard of the home can be found at:

She and her siblings, James Ford, Charlotte, and Ella Beatrice Davis were born in Whitt between 1889-1895. Their mother was Rachel Malinda Smith Davis. Their father,John C. Davis, was a missionary in Indian Territory, Oklahoma. He died there in March, 1895, and Rachel moved back to Whitt with her children and lived with the James D. Leigh family.
