    Pinkie Mae Davis-Herron



    Details of Disappearance

    Davis-Herron was last seen in Del Valle, Texas in September 1979, sometime around Labor Day, which was on September 3. She was on her way to Tex Golden Nugget, a neighborhood motel were she worked. Some friends saw her driving in that direction and she blew her horn at them and waved. Davis-Herron has never been seen again. Few details are available in her case.

    Pinkie Mae Davis-Herron went missing from Del Valle, TX in either 1976 or 1979, depending on which source you are looking at.

    According to most sites, she went missing in 1979, and Iíve seen varying dates from January to July to September. The Texas DOJ site, however, says she went missing in September 1976.
    ---
    Pinkie Mae was only 14 when she married in 1970. She had two children, and was divorced from her husband in 1975. The day she went missing, she was seen driving to the Tex Golden Nugget, a motel and bar/lounge in Del Valle,where she was employed. A family friend saw her, and said that Pinkie honked the horn and waved. She has never been seen again.
    ---
    Itís worth noting that Pinkie was a skilled mechanic, and enjoyed working on motorcycles and cars.
    ---
    While Pinkie had been involved in a divorce in 1975, I found nothing to indicate that the marriage was abusive or that she was having problems with him at the time of her disappearance. However, it could be a possibility.
    ---
    There is a somewhat confusing entry for Pinkie on MyHeritage. Iím not too familiar with this site, it appears to be a genealogy site that pulls data from other genealogy sites and pieces it together so that a personís life events are all on one page. Some of the information on Pinkie is correct Ė the birth year, motherís name, and the marriage/divorce involving Mr. Herron. Those match up to the actual records I found. A couple things I am unsure of. MyHeritage lists a father, while Pinkieís birth record only mentions a mother. MyHeritage states that she was married a second time, to an individual other than Mr. Herron. I can find no record of that marriage anywhere, but strangely, I DID come across that last name while researching Ė it is the last name of the person who owned the Tex Golden Nugget.

    Ancestry has a family tree showing her death in Travis County on 27 March 1989, which is supported by an entry in the Texas Death Index. The index records the death of a Pinkie Davis, so it is possible the tree owner has assumed incorrectly that this relates to Pinkie Mae Davis but it is odd.

    Thank you for checking Ancestry. There is an answer in a link I posted in previous post

    There WAS a Pinkie Mae Davis who died in 1989, but she was born in 1914, I think, so clearly not this Pinkie.

    Thank you for the pointer. I have looked a bit more closely at Ancestry and it is an error as you say. However, it turns out the Pinkie Davis that died in 1989 was not Pinkie Mae Davis but Pinkie Lucile Davis (originally Pinkie Lucile Allen), born (as you say) in 1914. This is confirmed on Ancestry by an entry in the US Social Security Applications and Claims Index which had (presumably) not been found by the tree owner. Back to the drawing board.
