Why it's called the Pearl Davis Suite
King Suites are named after Inkeepers Susan and Stan’s grandmothers. Pearl Davis (Hill), Susan's paternal great grandmother, whose portrait hangs in our living room, was born in 1881 in rural upper Mississippi. She was known as one of the most beautiful women in the state, but when she chose to marry Ed Hill, her parents said they would rather see her in a casket than marry that scoundrel. When Ed came to take Pearl away in a wagon, her father followed them with a shotgun to make sure that they indeed had a legal ceremony.
Pearl and Ed had five children but she died in 1919 at age 38, five months after having Pearlie Lucille. During their marriage Ed was well-known for the quality of his moonshine and he was considered one of the two most notorious bootleggers in Texas, ultimately being turned in by his rival. It took six Texas Rangers to haul him in. We have a touching letter he wrote in 1920 from prison to his infant daughter, apologizing for having to leave her. In the letter, he describes Pearl as a "perfect lady." Our granddaughter has been named Emily Pearl Vining.
“During the Shakespeare & Company production of my play An Impossible Life, my wife and I -- and the director and cast of the play -- not only stayed at Hampton Terrace, but also hung out there, partied there, and had a wonderful time there. Stan and his family were welcoming and made us all feel so much at home, we all left wishing they would adopt us. A splendid place to work, to play, to rest, and to meet friends and colleagues. We'll be back. Frequently.”
