"Fiesty Gram Al. Lover of horses, mules, and grandkids. Rode buggies in parades, knew everyone in the Clearwater valley, keeper of the family history. Sweet, but not too sweet."

Alexandria Frances (Allen) Davis was born May 8th, 1933 in Lewiston ID to Percy Jasper Allen and Frieda Margaretha Brinkman Allen. The family lived outside of Lapwai at this time. They moved to Kooskia ID shortly after, where Al started her first year of school. She lost her Dad when she was seven yrs old. Her mother and six children eventually moved to Stites Id where her mother was the telephone operator. Al loved to tell of when she would work for her mom as a relief operator and listen in on everyones conversations. She was a cheerleader at Stites Highschool and was 1948 princess of Grangeville BorderDays.

In 1950 she married Rodney Earl Schneider of Stites and moved to Northern California. They lived in Ereka and Willowcreek. She worked at the Pat Veneer Lumber mill pulling green chain and delivered rural mail. Rod and Al had two sons. Allen (Schneider) Dolph and Rodney (Schneider) Dolph. They later divorced.

Taking pack trips to the mountains, driving and riding horses and mules, raising beautiful flower gardens. Having her grandkids come to stay was something she always looked forward to.
