Click image for more information
 An issue of the Massachusetts Centinel from 1786 carried an advertisement of a property in Dorchester for sale. Many Davenports lived near the intersection of Bowdoin Street and Geneva Avenue, so it is possible that the property described in the advertisement was in that neighborhood.
