Kenneth Davis Collection

Summary: Donor is a descendent of 19th century portrait artist Eugne Pierrot (1824-1919) who is credited with painting the first portraits in Fort Worth. The portraits were of Sarah Hyde Gray Jennings (1816-1893) and her second husband Thomas Jefferson Jennings (1801-1881). Pierrot emigrated from France to the United States with his parents and four siblings in 1850, soon thereafter moving to Texas. Pierrot served in the Fourth Texas Calvary, Company F, fighting for the Confederate States of America during the Civil War.
