            Born in Houston, Texas on December 28, 1955, to Milam Davis and Jessie Poole Davis, Michael grew up in Bay City, Texas. He was surrounded by a large extended family, who have always remained close.  He graduated from Bay City High School in 1974 and attended Southwest Texas State University where he received a degree in Journalism in 1979.

            Michael married the love of his life, Karen Rogers, in 1980.  Their love of travel took them to many destinations across the United States and Europe.  Michael’s keen interest in Civil War History led them to visit all of the battle sites of the Civil War and he maintained an extensive collection of Civil War literature. Michael was an avid reader throughout his life and also found enjoyment in playing his guitar.
