Malcolm S. Davis

Deputy Sheriff Malcolm Davis was killed around midnight by Clyde Barrow as he and other deputies were staking out a house at 3111 N. Winetka Ave. while waiting for members of the Bonnie and Clyde Gang.

Deputy Davis is buried in Grapevine Cemetery, Grapevine, Tarrant County, Texas.

The Bonnie and Clyde Gang was responsible for the murder of law enforcement officers in four states - Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas - between 1932 and 1934. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow started their criminal career by robbing banks and quickly became notorious murderers wanted for the murders of nine law enforcement officers.

The two criminals were finally shot and killed in Louisiana when they were ambushed by a task force of Texas and Louisiana officers.

Malcolm Davis was my grandfather's brothers son. I was born in 1940, amd he died in 1933, so I never knew Malcolm, but was told about his bravery and heroism. My grandfather, W.B. Dwiggins was the Executor of Malcolm's will. I am proud to say Malcolm part one of our family.
