Hello Uncle? Dirk,
My name is Chris Macaulay. I am the great grandson of Dorothy Davenport Reid (Harry's estranged daughter and wife of infamous Wallace Reid). I would love to understand the estrangement if you have any clues or any other family info you would like to share. I am mentioned in David Menafee's Book on Wally in the Acknowledgements. I have been most recently fascinated by the Vining line of the Davenport line trying to determine how far back the acting pedigree went? I traced the Davenport line back to Ornus de Davenport b. 1046. Anyways, I have always loved seeing my great grandfather Harry in MGM's greatest (just saw his King of France role in The Hunchback of Notre Dame). He was always such the conscience of Hollywood in his roles, yet I understand he loved his poker playing, and had a fun wild side. Anything you care to share would be of ultimate value to me. Thank you and sorry it took so long to e-connect.
