Daniel Davis was probably born around 1750 but we don't know where or when exactly. He had his children in Hardiston,Sussex Co NJ(1781-1799). He moved in 1800 to Canaan twp, Wayne co PA and then Dyberry,Wayne co PA.(could have been twp boundary change) He died in Cherry Ridge twp, Wayne Co. PA January 30, 1812 . Daniel was married to Catherine (we think) by 1773.Phineas G. Goodrich in his History of Wayne County Pennsylvania (1880, repub 1992) suggests that Daniel Davis went out to Cherry Ridge about 1796 and goes on to say (p 289): "Daniel Davis located upon the farm now owned by H. L. Phillips. When there was much travel upon the turnpike, Mr. Davis kept a good public house for many years. Stephen Kimble married Catherine, a daughter of Daniel Davis."

Many of his children were prominent and successful citizens. His children are as follows :

1. Caleb Davis (1774-1864) Sussex Co,NJ . In 1795 Caleb married Catherine Teeter ( 1774-1864) in Trenton NJ, daughter of Peter and Christine Rice Teeter. They didn't stay in NJ orPA but removed to Geneo NY. By 1813 he bought 700 acres in Ithaca ,Tompkins Co,NY.where he farmed. The red brick house that he and his 7 sons built still stands. His farm was 4 miles south of Ithaca on the creek called Inlet. He was elected to public office in 1821. He also had 4 daughters, eleven children in all. Many of his descendants rose to national prominence and also had university degrees.There is a Davis Cemetery on the farm.

2. Possibly Sheldon Davis b. 1776/77.

3. Daniel Davis Jr. b.c. 1776 in Sussex Co,NJ.

4. Samuel Davis (c. 1778-aft. 1840) b.in NJ. married Lois Polly ?. He lived in Wayne Co.They had at least three children.

They were (b.1809-1827) Apollas, Abram, Philetis, Henry V., Margaret Ann(m.Daniel D.Davis), Harriet N.(m.Caleb S.Davis), 3 more daughters.

8. Jacob S. Davis b. 1784-90 in NJ married Louisa Jenkins(1790/94),daughter of Benjamin and Elizabeth Boyd Jenkinsof Little Britian NY. They lived in Bethany, Canaan twp, Wayne Co. PA. They were both living in 1833. Jacob was an excellent carpenter and built a mansion in 1818. In Bethany 1810-1820 he held offices of commissioner clerk, deputy treasurer, and treasurer. He had a superior education and was a musicial. He became the editor of the Republican Advocate in 1822-1830. He contributed many articles and writings. They had 6 children-five sons and one daughter from 1818-1830.

9. Sarah Davis (Jan. 20, 1791-1856)b. in NJ. She married Col. Jacob Schenck(1784-1846) . They had 11 children. One report said she died at 21 in 1812.

They had Phebe, John J., Gertrude, Magdaline, Apollos Davis, Henry V., Caleb D, Isaac R., Adna, Harriet L, and Sarah C. from 1810 to 1831.

At the end of the Revolution , Daniel Davis is found in NJ c.1773. He is first found in Sussex Co. NJ in 1790's and had his children there in NJ from 1774-1799. He is listed in the land records in Hardiston, Sussex Co. NJ in 1793 also buying land in Wantage in 1796. His occupation was a saddler. Daniel and son Caleb fought with the Sussex County NJ militia in the Revolutionary War (we think). Daniel and his family removed across the state line to Cherry Ridge,Wayne Co. PA in 1799-1800 . There was much travel on the Milford and Owego turnpike , and Daniel Davis kept a good public house for many years. Alfred Mathews: History of Wayne, Pike, and Monroe Counties, Pennsylvania refers to the settlement at Cherry Ridge and writes "One of the earliest taverns of which there is any record is that kept by Daniel Davis, though when he first commenced to keep a public-house there were so few roads and fewer travelers, that his place was hardly a tavern in more than name. Apollos Davis succeeded him. In the year 1800 Daniel Davis made the first leather ever manufactured in Wayne County. He had but one vat, and the quantity produced was very small, though much sought after by the settlers, who pronounded it of excellent quality."(pg. 570). Daniel brought the tanning industry to Northern PA. Among his personal property listed in probate records are many tanning supplies. In 1804 The first town election was held in Dyberry (taken from Cherry Ridge Twp). Daniel Davis and Esq. J. Bunting were listed as Overseers. Daniel and Catherine Davis died in 1812. They are possibly buried in the Darling Cemetery in 2 unmarked graves next to Sarah Davis Schenck and Col. Jacob Schenck and the Schenck family.

In Nov. 1822, he became editor and co-publisher of the Republican Advocate, in which connection he remained until Jan. 1830. Mr. Davis was a voluminous contributor, his writings including an interesting, though somewhat imperfect "History of Wayne Co." which ran thru many numbers and was designed for subsequent pub. in book form. He had a wife with Xantippe's personal characteristics, and 1814-15 she left his bed and board. He tried hard to induce her to return, among other efforts writing an affectionate letter, in which he promised to overlook the past, and pictured the happiness that might be in store for them. The lady with whom the absconding spouse was living testified during the divorce proceedings which followed that Mrs. Davis, on receiving the epistle, inquired as to the indorsement. Being told, she simply wrote "ignoramus" on the back of the letter and returned it to her husband, whose experience in the county offices had made him very familiar with technical legal terms, and by whom the hint as to the inadvisability of pressing his suit was taken without the necessity of a "kick" to give it emphasis.

April 2, 1835, Dr. Daniel Davis of Ithaca, bot land (from Dr. Thomas Sweet of Carbondale??) in Cannan, Wayne Co., PA on the south side of the Milford and Owego Turnpike: 4 acres+ part of Elk Forest.

(Wayne Co, PA DEEDS 3:30)Daniel sold this land to John H. Schenk of Dyberry in 1837.

Marriages of the Dutch Reformed church (now Congregational) of Ithaca, notes among the members of the First Presbyterian Church, Ithaca, Daniel Davis December 28, 1821, marked dism.

In 1840 census of Canisteo, Steuben Co. NY lists he and his wife and another couple live with them...probably Henry ,Margaret's brother, and his wife Desiah.

Oct. 5, 1843 , Henry, Margaret Ann, Philetus, Harriet, and Apollos (heirs of Apollos of Dyberry ,Wayne Co. PA) sold to Jacob Kimble (Catharine Davis Kimble's son, and Daniel Davis's grandson ) 203 +acres of land.(Wayne co.,NY DEEDS,14:350).

In 1857 his residence in Canisteo was Greenwood Rd.(Bennett's Creek Road). In 1868-9 Steuben Co. Directory gives his residence as the same road as 1857. 1873 Atlas gives his residence on the same road near W. Carter.

Clayton's "History of Steuben County" (P. 224) "Among the early physicians was Dr. Daniel D. Davis who was not only eminent in his profession but a citizen of prominence and distinction."There is no estate file for him in either Steuben nor Tompkins Counties.

In the Davis Cemetary, is his gravestone, his wife Margaret A.'s gravestone, and 4 smaller stones marked H.C.Davis, D.W. Davis, Ma.A. Davis, D.D. Davis

In 1875 census in Canisteo, lists Ann Davis-56 yrs. lived with Cassie -24yrs.

IN 1880 census lists Ann, Cassie29 yrs., and George W. 29yrs a medical student.In 1860 he was with Caleb Davis Jr. at Ithaca .He does not seem to be an heir of Caleb Davis, so may well be a son of Margaret's brother Henry.

From Canisteo, Steuben Co NY rootsweb website:

Clara M. Hargrave 1901-1965 w/o Bert R. d/o Henry & Marietta (KENYON) DAVIS of south Canisteo ???

Pioneer Life in Greenwood Steuben Co NY Dennis McGraw

We staid with Bennett over night and the next morning started up Bennett's Creek. It being 14 miles to our destination, we proceeded slowly along, as our team was legweary and the road horrible. The road led through a dense pine forest where a part of the way the track was just wide enough to let the wagon through and in some places it would sink in the mud up to the hub of the wheels. We had not traveled more than a mile or two when we were forced to hire another yoke of oxen and "double up," making tow teams, and then we had all we could do to get along. We finally made seven miles up the creek that day and put up for the night with a gentleman named Bachelder, and in the morning continued our journey, arriving at Levi Davis'. Mr. Davis came from Tompkins county a year or two before and was keeping tavern and store in a small log house, one story and a half high, and the space he occupied with his goods was about six by ten feet, doing a thriving business. Mr. Davis was a energetic man, made things move about him and accumulated a good property before he died.

All the pioneers were hardy, industrious and healthy, and were always glad to see and welcome new neighbors.

Our Joseph????Yes!!!"The first depot was a little round house that stood near the flouring mill on the north side of the railroad track, about two blocks east of Road 331. It was erected by "Old Uncle Joseph DAVIS", who was an enthusiastic believer in spiritual manifestations, and used it especially for the accommodation of such spirits as were pleased to leave their celestial abode and return to this sin-cursed earth for the amusement of the mystic circle that congregated there. Sometime before the death of Mr. Davis the seances were discontinued and the building was used as a depot, soon to be replaced by a new building near-by. This building was also the first telegraph office, operated in 1864 by Miss Nellie NIXON. This was considered the most important station between Fort Wayne and Chicago. In 1900 the depot was moved west near Road 331. The first regular installed agent was John W. HOUGHTON, who served four or five years and resigned in 1865. Then Daniel MCDONALD was agent and telegraph operator until 1870 and after his resignation, Clinton C. HUMPHREY was agent. Another progressive agent, Frank P. GRIFFIN, who wished means of communication between home and office, introduced the "tin can line". Other agents included Thomas TWOMEY, Mark GEAR, R. E. WHISMAN and E. E."

" Our old friend, Joseph Davis, died very suddenly at his residence in this place on Saturday morning. He arose from his bed about 6 o'clock, feeling as well as usual. Shortly after dressing himself he went out into the dooryard, in company with his son, Caleb Davis, and feeling his strength fail him he sat down on a box near the well, and in less than a minute afterwards fell over-dead. He was born in the state of Pennsylvania in the year 1799, and at the time of his death was 71 years old. His parents removed to Tompkins Co NY when he was seven years of age. He remained a resident of that state until 1830, when he removed to LaPorte Co, IN. In 1862 he came to his place where he has since lived. He was a kind and obliging friend, and will be missed by his relatives and a large circle of acquaintances.

She was born November 29, 1820 in Dyberry twp, PA. ; or 12-27-1821; Married 1st cousin, and died January 07, 1899.

Notes for DANIAL DR. D. DAVIS:

Became a Doctor. Might have been born in 1804 as twin to John but tombstone says 1803-1874, 71 yrs old when died.

April 2, 1835, Dr. Daniel Davis of Ithaca, bot land (from Dr. Thomas Sweet of Carbondale??) in Cannan, Wayne Co., PA on the south side of the Milford and Owego Turnpike: 4 acres+ part of Elk Forest.

(Wayne Co, PA DEEDS 3:30)Daniel sold this land to John H. Schenk of Dyberry in 1837.

Marriages of the Dutch Reformed church (now Congregational) of Ithaca, notes among the members of the First Presbyterian Church, Ithaca, Daniel Davis December 28, 1821, marked dism.

In 1840 census of Canisteo, Steuben Co. NY lists he and his wife and another couple live with them...probably Henry ,Margaret's brother, and his wife Desiah.

Oct. 5, 1843 , Henry, Margaret Ann, Philetus, Harriet, and Apollos (heirs of Apollos of Dyberry ,Wayne Co. PA) sold to Jacob Kimble (Catharine Davis Kimble's son, and Daniel Davis's grandson ) 203 +acres of land.(Wayne co.,NY DEEDS,14:350).

In 1857 his residence in Canisteo was Greenwood Rd.(Bennett's Creek Road). In 1868-9 Steuben Co. Directory gives his residence as the same road as 1857. 1873 Atlas gives his residence on the same road near W. Carter.

Clayton's "History of Steuben County" (P. 224) "Among the early physicians was Dr. Daniel D. Davis who was not only eminent in his profession but a citizen of prominence and distinction."There is no estate file for him in either Steuben nor Tompkins Counties.

In the Davis Cemetary, is his gravestone, his wife Margaret A.'s gravestone, and 4 smaller stones marked H.C.Davis, D.W. Davis, Ma.A. Davis, D.D. Davis

In 1875 census in Canisteo, lists Ann Davis-56 yrs. lived with Cassie -24yrs.

IN 1880 census lists Ann, Cassie29 yrs., and George W. 29yrs a medical student.In 1860 he was with Caleb Davis Jr. at Ithaca .He does not seem to be an heir of Caleb Davis, so may well be a son of Margaret's brother Henry.

Clara M. Hargrave 1901-1965 w/o Bert R. d/o Henry & Marietta (KENYON) DAVIS of south Canisteo ???

Pioneer Life in Greenwood Steuben Co NY Dennis McGraw

We staid with Bennett over night and the next morning started up Bennett's Creek. It being 14 miles to our destination, we proceeded slowly along, as our team was legweary and the road horrible. The road led through a dense pine forest where a part of the way the track was just wide enough to let the wagon through and in some places it would sink in the mud up to the hub of the wheels. We had not traveled more than a mile or two when we were forced to hire another yoke of oxen and "double up," making tow teams, and then we had all we could do to get along. We finally made seven miles up the creek that day and put up for the night with a gentleman named Bachelder, and in the morning continued our journey, arriving at Levi Davis'. Mr. Davis came from Tompkins county a year or two before and was keeping tavern and store in a small log house, one story and a half high, and the space he occupied with his goods was about six by ten feet, doing a thriving business. Mr. Davis was a energetic man, made things move about him and accumulated a good property before he died.

All the pioneers were hardy, industrious and healthy, and were always glad to see and welcome new neighbors.

He married SUSAN "MIRANDA" SHEPARD Bet. 1835 - 1840 in Maybe married later, daughter of OBEDIAH SHEPARD and WIFE. She was born August 18, 1819 in Tompkins Co NY.;) maybe of Greenwood,Steuben Co NY, and died June 20, 1902 in Ithaca, NY ; 83 yrs.

Notes for JOHN DAVIS:

John's birthday is listed June 19, 1804 and June 6, 1804. John is probably Daniel 's twin. Daniel's birthday is June 6, 1804. Was in farming, manufacturing, and trade.

He married his wife in 1835, first wife possibly Matilda(Matilta is on gravestone of their daughter Sarah in Ithaca City Cemetery- rest of family buried in Inlet Valley Cemetery). They had 2 or 3 daughters who died in infancy. Sarah Francis died at age 5 in 1846. 2 others died as infants. Babies weren't listed in census. She is probably mother of Orlando because he was born in 1841. Orlando was alive in 1894. I think now that John had one wife called Maranda ( on will). Orlando says on his will that Floyd and Jerome are his brothers. Orlando made cousin Frank and brother Floyd executors of will.

Susan Maranda Shepard is mother of Jerome and Floyd.and probably Orlando. Maranda's will doesn't indicate differently. Jerome was 9 yrs older than FLoyd. Orlando was at home running the farm at age 39 and single. Jerome was at home on farm at age 30 and single. He was living in 1880. He married Jesse. He was either a mechanical engineer or just in mechanics. Floyd went to college and was a professor of Univ. of Cornell and Drake Univ., and Vir. Tech and one in New Mexico.

John was executor of father Caleb and Catherine's wills from 1845-1849. John would fight with a brother over the boundary of a fence on adjoining farms.(funny story) John's farm was 140 acres. Caleb's 700 acres he bot in 1813 had been divided .

New York State death record #39647 shows John Davis died in Ithaca age 84 years 4 months and 11 days , died at 6pm Oct. 30, 1888 of pneumonia, buried in Ithaca by Baldwin Nov. 2.

A PIONEER DEAD

Mon. Joseph Davis passed from Life unto Death Friday Morning.

An honorable fellow citizen, a neighbor, esteemed by all, a friend, beloved for his many generous impulses and self-sacrificing virtues, has passed from life to his eternal reward. The veil of the great mysterious beyound has been lifted and Friday our old friend and companion has solved the great problem of the hereafter that all, sooner or later, will be called upon to discover, each for himself, and that for the eternal future. The life just passed into mortality was ripe in years, marked by good, marked out on true independent, generous, honorable ideals, that characterized our friend, Mr. Davis, and rendered him so markedly the man, the friend , the brother and the father that all knew him to be.

With a brilliant intellect he was always discovering the objects in life quite out of the ordinary line from that relied on by his fellows. Taking nothing for granted, because it had been so decided by those before him, he delved profoundly into research and then formed his own opinion upon his own porings, regardless of the victim of others who posed as possible mastyers and leaders, and he ever was ready and happy to expound any and all of his theories, and produce the proof of the correctness of his positions, that he had established by his profound stories. Tireless in his investigations, he exhausted his every subject of research and proved everything. In science, religion , and politics he was a most conscientious student and accepted nothing as trugh that did not agree with the testimony of nature and the possibilities of facts founded on the imunitable principles of nature and nature's laws.

The Holy Scriptures were most closely studied, not to prove any sect entirely correct or wrong, nor to establish any set religion, but to discover their divinity and everlasting christianity founded on the Book that he was more intent on establishing in his own mind, as he had no preference for the church of man, but rather the beneficence of real christianity as exhibited to mankind by the Christ, the Savior of the World.

True, he contributed of his substance most liberally to the church, as he did for all charities, and felt a real pleasure in so doing. Always alive to everything of a public interprize, he was foremost in contributing to public improvements to the extent of his abilities; he was one of the founders of our city and did much toward its upbuilding and enjoyed the confidence of the country, and the public, and official positions to which he was frequently elected to fill, spoke of the grateful feeling entertained by his neighbors for their fellow citizen.

Mr. Davis was one of the organizers of the lodge of Odd Fellows in Bourbon in the early fifties, as he was of the tribe of Red Men that has so long held its beneficent sway among our people. Most charitable was our friend as proven by the thousands of beliefs bestowed. Possessing a sensitive disposition and a tender heart, sickness and distress ever appealed to Mr. Davis, and his ministrations at the bedside of the afflicted can only be known to the All-seeing One as his occasions were innumerable where his attentions were the means of restoring to health and happiness the sorely afflicted who had lain close to death's door.

Mr. Davis was born in NY 72 years ago and removed to LaPorte in 1834 and at about 20 years of age, traveled overland to the great Eldorado(after gold), in California, where he remained about three years, when he returned home via the Pacific ocean and Panama coast to NY. While in California, he practiced law and gained some important cases, one particularly in clearing a prisoner who appeared to have the hangman's noose already about his neck, and the entire populace believed that he hadn't the least chance to escape with his life, was acquitted by his jury after being bravely defeneded by the talented "boy advocate". This able defense gave him a reputation all over California and the Pacific coast, yet not sufficient to induce him to practice law exclusively. He turned his attention to manufacturing, mechanics and farming for 7 years, occasionally indulging in politics for recreation, and relief from the many duties which he was generally engaged in while in Bourbon. For a time he represented this county in the state legislature. Mr. Davis had retired from all active business and rested on his laurels achieved by indomitable energy, rare integrity and ripe ability in the argument of the rest he had so hardily earned, and, surrounded by his family, slowly passed to his last great reward eternal. A good man has thus lived and died and his memory will live green and blossom in hearts whilst we remain on this mundane sphere.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Davis of the M.E. church, assisted by Rev. Neff and the Presbyterian choir on Sunday at 2 o'clock at the house. The services at the grave were conducted by the Red Men. Interment took place at Pleasant Hill Cemetery.

Card of Thanks: We desire to thank the neighbors and friends who so kindly assisted us in our sad bereivement. Mrs. J.W. Davis and children.

Feb. 2002: It was been reported that Joseph W./Mary Jane Garrison's grave stone is about to fall over due to squirrel tunnels underneath it. Roger STickney is attending to it. Karin Rettinger reported it.

Joseph W. Davis was appointed guardian in April 1, 1872 after the death of his father who had been guardian with Caleb (in control of finances), for Arad's children...(Catherine and Joseph Jr)Catherine had died in 1868 and Mary Sears, Arad's wife, died in 1871 so Joseph W. Davis Jr.sued his uncle Joseph and Caleb to get the money owed him.(I have document).

DIED -Davis-On the evening of the 5th inst.,Mrs. Eliza Davis, aged 27 yrs.The deceased leaves a husband-Mr Omar Davis-an infant child and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss.

Bourbon Township was organized January 6, 1840. Two years later, the south half became organized as Tippecanoe Township. Bourbon Township's first Trustees were William G. CARTER, Jeptha DISHER, Jacob JOHNSON and John SHARP. Justice of the Peace was Thomas H. MCKEE. Bourbon, as a town, was laid out by Samuel THOMAS and J. S. NEIDIG, April 23, 1853, under the State law authorizing the incorporation of towns and villages for municipal purposes. First Officers elected were: Trustees - Elias GALENTINE, Omar DAVIS(secretary) and James PORTER(Pres. of town board). Marshal : Caleb DAVIS. Clerk-Treasurer - George SEARS. Assessor - Lewis GROSS. The first newspaper venture was by Frank J. BECK, who started the Bourbon "Independent Press" in 1865. Dr. John F. PARKS was the first Doctor in Bourbon Township. He made his calls on horse back, carrying his medical supplies .(Source.".HISTORY OF BOURBON" by Rev. Magaw) http://skybusiness.com/buildinggenealogyandmusic/index55.html

Greer Manuscript c. 1916? James M. Greer Sr. This is part of a letter to the Bourbon News Mirrow on 12-5-1931 written by George Schrom (about Industrial History of Bourbon) .:"Next we go across the railroad to the same place where the Peabody mill is, where Homer Davis operated a saw mill which was burned down that winter. ....We cross the railroad and on the north side of track stood old Cap Davis' lumber office and 8-square building. He always wore long hair and kept a big Newfoundland dog which he called "Prince". He was the father of Omer, Kaleb, and Joseph Davis."

By 1850 Omar had settled at Bourbon (HISTORY OF INDIANA op.cit.p.292) where he had interests with his brother Joseph W. J.W. Davis and Bro operated extensive mills sucessfully about this time (1850).The Davis mills were destroyed by fire in 1865 (ibid. p.288). In 1867 the Davis Brothers erected a fine large brick business block on Main Street, where in 1890 L. Ballow's block stood erected after the Davis block was destroyed by fire. Omar Davis in 1865-66 erected the large brick block on the southeast corner of Main and Center streets, where stood the first hotel in the town..(ibid.p.282).

"OMAR DAVIS DEAD

After 15 years of suffering. Once Prominent Businessman.

After 15 years of sickness, Omar Davis, a former well known business man of this place, died at his home in this city last Saturday, Nov 26th, 1910, aged 79, 2 mos.&24 days. His demise was not a surprise for he had been helpless for several years, blind for three years and a form of paralysis had overtaken him in a pronounced manner the last few months.

Mr. Davis was born in Ithica, New York state, September 4th, 1831. In his early life he came to Westville, LaPorte County, Indiana where he remained a short time and then came to this place in 1854, lived here ever since , and during this time he had identified himself with the business interests of the town in no small degree. He was one time identified with the present grist mill which has been enlarged to the big firm of the Delp Grain Co. He was also owner at another time of a saw mill, selling it to W. J. Acker. He was in the merchantile business for years and erected the buildings now occupying the space from the post office to the Martin Pharmacy. Later he occupied the room now used by the Bourbon Banking Co, for a general store and when he gave this up he moved to the room now occupied by the Fribley Onion Storage, where he finally went out of business because of ill health. He was the father of two children by his first wife, but none by his present wife. He was a staunch democrat all his life. His death removed the last of his immediate family, except the wife, who has been exceedingly kind, patient, administering to his wants as if he was a child. Certainly no woman lives who has a better right to feel she has performed her duty in a more perfect manner, in a similar case. In fact, Mr. Davis was more helpless than a child, his last few weeks, and his wife never for a moment forsook the least attention to his wants, lifting him about as if a child, and ever mindful of his comfort.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Charles Fribley, assisted by Rev. Bailey, Monday, and the remains were buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery."

_________Obituary...Schuyler Neb.Paper ,October 1897__________

Died Saturday, October 23, in this city, Mr. Caleb Davis, aged 75 years.Mr. Davis was a hale old gentleman and had enjoyed good health until quite lately when he began to fail. He drove from Creston, Platte County, when it rained the first part of last week and caught a cold which hastened his death. Deceased was born in Cayuga, Cayuga County, NY, in 1822, and moved with his parents to Indiana when 12 years of age. There he was married in 1857 to Miss Christina Lucas and to them six children were born, three boys and three girls. Three died in infancy; one son lived to manhood and died, and one daughter, Mrs. W. S. Jenkins of this city, and William who lives at Creston.(They) with the aged wife still survive him. Mr. Davis and his wife were pioneers of Nebraska having come to this state and settled way back in '69'. He lived most of the time in Butler county but for the past few years had resided mostly at Creston. At the time of his death he was living in his son in law's house here.(Jenkins) Mr. Davis was a genial, kind hearted man, a kind father and husband and a good citizen, and was highly regarded by those who knew him. The sorrowing wife and son and daughter have the compassion of their friends in the loss of a dear husband and father who preceds them to a purer and brighter abode. The funeral services were held at the residence Sunday, Rev. T. W. Leard officiating, and the remains were taken to Butler County for burial in the cemetery near Edholm.

Farmer and machinist. Roger Stickney

"Samuel S. Davis, a successful farmer and prominent citizen of New Durham tp., was born in Tompkins County, NY, May 29, 1825. His parents were Joseph and Catherine Davis, who also were natives of the same county. The later still lives with her son, at the advanced age of 81 yrs, and enjoys seemingly good health. Mr Samuel S. Davis, the subject of this short biographical notice, was brought up on the farm, partly in one of the thrifty communities of great Empire state. He received such an education as the public common schools of his day afforded. In 1835, when he was about ten yrs of age, his parents emigrated with him to this county(LaPorte), where they began to taste the sweets and bitters of pioneer life, and where young Samuel received that hardy drill, both mental and physical, which only a wild frontier life can give. When he became a man he followed mercantile business for a period of about three years, in this tp., and for two years he also sold goods in Goshen, Elkhart county. In 1850 he was joined in matrimony to Miss Lovina Taylor, and they had 6 children , of whom only the following three are living. Florence M, Laura E, and Hattie E. October 13, 1870 Mr. Davis was married the second time, namely to Mrs. Idelia A. Hoffe, and by her he has had two children, but of these only Frank Evaline is living. Mrs. Davis had one child, named Annie, by her first husband. Mr. Davis resides on sec. 4, or in what is known as the village of Holmesville, He owns 213 acres of valuable farm land, and has been eminently successful in farming and stock raising. As an early pioneer, as a prominent farmer, and as a representative citizen of the thriving community of New Durham and adjoining tps, we present a portrait of Mr. Davis in this volume on page 793.

Death of An Old Citizen

Samuel S. Davis , many years ago a resident of Bourbon and a brother of Joseph W. and Omar Davis of that place, died at his home in LaPorte Co. 2 or 3 weeks ago. Speaking of his death the LaPorte Republican says:

"Hon. Joseph W. Davis of Bourbon, Marshall Co, brother of the late Samuel S. Davis, of Otis, was in LaPorte, Thursday of last week, where he spent the day. He had been up to New Durham, his old home, attending the funeral services of his brother Samuel and was on his way home! Mr. Davis came with his parents to LaPorte in 1834 and remained in this county until 1850 when he went to California after gold. He returned from the Pacific Slope in 1853 and soon after went to Bourbon and has resided there up til now. He was a lawyer by profession and democrat in politics. He represented Marshall county one term in the state legislature. Over fifty years ago we knew him while he was a clerk in his father's store at "Pin Hook"."

PASSED AWAY LAST FRIDAY MORNING AFTER A LONG ILLNESS

Frances Jane, wife of Caleb Davis, of Rice's Mill,

Huron, died last Friday morning at 6 o'clock, aged 67

years, 4 months, and 9 days.

Her complaint was heart trouble, primarily, though it

began with a mildstroke of paralysis which came upon

her four years ago. She had been previously ill for

sixteen weeks, being cared for by her daughters. She

was at the last confined to her chair and unable to

lie in bed.

Mrs. Davis was born in Ithaca, NY. She was the mother

of eleven children, one dying many years ago, so that

at her death she had six sons and four daughters, all

grown and able-bodied. The sons are William, James,

Frank, Lewis, Charles, and Clarence, all of Huron, and

the daughters Mrs. Henry Head, Mrs. Charles Terbush,

Mrs. Fred Dickson, And Mrs. Henry Gage.

The funeral was held at 1pm Sunday at the house and it

was largely attended. The service was conducted by the

Rev. James Guthrie, of the North Huron M.P. Church.

There were about thirty-five of the children and

grandchildren present, the six sons acting as

pallbearers. The interment was in the Huron Cemetery."

Notes for ROSANNA DAVIS:

I have made contact with a grandson of Helen Louise Davis and her 2nd husband, Henry J. Gehle. We are trying to combine our information on this family. Question, he said Rosana (his Aunt Rose) lived with them several winters in the early 40's. She died at the state hospital in Willard, NY in either 1944 or '45 at age 96 and is buried in Trumensburg as is his mother, father and sister in the Morgan plot. He was very surprised that we had Rose as being married two times...he wasn't aware of it. Can you tell me where this info came from? Also, he said Helen Louise Davis, his grandmother, was married first to a Sterling and he thinks his first name was George. He is buried in Canisteo, NY. He also said Blanche was the daughter of Helen Louise and her first husband, Mr. Sterling.

Back to Rose (Rosanna) Davis...you had her first husband as a Mr. Bailey and her sister, Amanda Jane Davis' 2nd husband as a Wm. Bailey. Is it possible Amanda was the only one married to a Bailey?

Believe the records in Steuben Co. lists Martha A. Davis's marrige date to Wm. as June 17,1871. Wm. remarried after their divorce to a Martha Hart. At the time of

his marriage to Martha she had a son, Mathew Hart. Must have had him before

she married as records show her father's last name as Hart. Mathew died

young...and is buried in same plot as Mary and Wm. Joyce

Notes for HELEN LOUISE DAVIS:

Birthday July 6, 1858 according to Linda Jean Clark.

Was Helen married to Frank Sterling? yes, on 1880 census living with mother Louisa Davis in Tompkins co ny

I(Joyce Mullen) have made contact with a grandson of Helen Louise Davis and her 2nd husband, Henry J. Gehle. We are trying to combine our information on this family. Question, he said Rosana (his Aunt Rose) lived with them several winters in the early 40's. She died at the state hospital in Willard, NY in either 1944 or '45 at age 96 and is buried in Trumensburg as is his mother, father and sister in the Morgan plot. He was very surprised that we had Rose as being married two times...he wasn't aware of it. Can you tell me where this info came from? Also, he said Helen Louise Davis, his grandmother, was married first to a Sterling and he thinks his first name was George. He is buried in Canisteo, NY. He also said Blanche was the daughter of Helen Louise and her first husband, Mr. Sterling.

Back to Rose (Rosanna) Davis...you had her first husband as a Mr. Bailey and her sister, Amanda Jane Davis' 2nd husband as a Wm. Bailey. Is it possible Amanda was the only one married to a Bailey?

FLOYD DAVIS, E. M., Ph. D.,

Professor of Chemistry and Physics

Dr. FLOYD DAVIS was born at Ithaca, NY, May 29, 1859. Until about sixteen years of age he attended a school in the country, walking one and three-fourths miles from his father's home on the farm. Here he enjoyed all the advantages of pure air and out-door exercise so necessary to physical development, and in this way laid the foundation of a vigorous constitution.

For two years Mr. Davis attended the Canisteo Academy and Ithaca High School, preparing himself for entering college. In these schools he showed a great desire for scientific study, especially in pure and applied mathematics. He then studied one year at Cornell University, four years at the Ohio State University, one year at the School of Mines of the Missouri State University, and after teaching three years, he studied one year more at the Johns Hopkins University. In each of these institutions he made the sciences his principal study.

At Cornell University and the Ohio State University, Mr. Davis devoted himself mainly to the study of Mathematics, engineering, and agricultural subjects. Being desirous of devoting some time to the study of mining and metallurgy, he then spent one year at the Missouri School of Mines, in studying analytical chemistry, assaying, mining and metallurgy. At the Johns Hopkins University he devoted his entire time to the study of chemistry and geology. At these institutions he covered the field of mathematics, physical science and natural history, under the ablest instructors.

Mr. Davis has been a hard worker since his graduation and is a thorough believer in technical education. He has written a number of articles and pamphlets on subjects of a scientific or technical nature. Among these may be mentioned: "Imaginary Functions;" "The March of Time;" "The Systems of Amalgamation;" "Natural Gas;" "Primeval Evolution; or ,Development of the Earth before the Introduction of Life;" "Potable Water;" etc,etc. He has also in MS an "Elementary Handbook on Potable Water," which will be published this spring.

In 1883, Mr. Davis received the degrees of PH. B., C.E., and E. M. from the Missouri School of Mines; in 1884, he received the degree of M. Sc. from Adrian College; and in 1888, the degree of Ph. D. from Miami University. These degrees were conferred for completed courses of study and accepted theses.

In 1883, Mr. Davis was called to the chair of chemistry and metallurgy, in the Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College (Blacksburg), which position he filled til 1886. In 1886-87 he studied at the Johns Hopkins University, and during the summer and fall of '87 he was engaged in the Black Hills investigating the mineral resources and studying the remarkable geological formations of that region. Since January 1, 1888, he has been progessor of chemistry and physics, in Drake University. Professor Davis is also chemist of the Iowa State Board of Health; member of the American Institute of Mining Engineers; and member of the Wisconsin Academy of Science, Arts and Letters.

In 1889, Professor Davis delivered a course of lectures on metallurgy, at the Wisconsin State University, at which institution he was acting professor of metallurgy. He was invited to continue in that position, but Drake University could not dispense with so much of his time.

In 1889, Governor Larrabee appointed Prof. Davis a commissioner to represent Iowa in the World's Exposition at the city of Paris.

Mr. Davis was married December 21, 1882 at Ithaca, NY to Miss Elizabeth Edwards. They have been blessed with two bright boys, one six and the other three years old.

Prof. Davis has more than ordinary ability as a teacher. The lecture system is his plan adopted for most branches. His extensive knowledge, derived from study and experimental investigation, make these lectures full of facts clearly represented, which not only furnish food for the minds of his students, but arouse in them a desire to investigate for themselves and learn more of the mysteries and practical things in nature. On account of his pleasing disposition, manifest interest, and thorough knowledge, Prof. Davis is held by the students among the first of the honored professors of Drake University.

Notes for JOSEPH WILLIAM DAVIS:

BOURBON NEWS-MIRROW, Thurs, December 8, 1932

At the zenith of the day, Tuesday, Joseph William Davis Jr,. a well known citizen, passed to his reward and the funeral will be held this afternoon at 2:30 pm at the home, Rev. Gilbert of the Presbyterian Church, conducting the last rites.

The passing of Mr. Davis was not unexpected because his health had been failing for some months. Despite this there never was a time that he was not cheerful, exempilfying that trait that accompanied him all his life. He was surrounded by his family and he peacefully went to sleep, having rounded out a long life of usefulness.

Mr. Davis was born in Pinhook, Indiana, the son of Arad and Mary Tyler Davis, on June 30th, 1850. When he departed this life on December 6th 1932, he was 82 years, five months and six days old, more than that four score years, which is much longer than the average span of human life.

Mr. Davis' father died when he was but two years old, leaving the mother, who was twice married after his death, but to that union there were born Ezra Tyler Davis, Catherine Marie Davis, and Joseph William.

To the second union there was born Emma McWilliams, and to the third there came Grace Sears and George Sears.

All these brothers and sisters have preceded him in death, as have the parents.

Mr. Davis spent his early life near LaPort, with his grandparents and uncles, as well as with uncles in Kansas , and then in Bourbon.

Reminiscences of these boyhood days of pioneering, reveal happy days, living close to nature. He was a great lover of birds and all through life watched their habits and made them close companions, and life was all the richer for it. His genial disposition and sense of humor never deserted him and always made for him firends, and he was affectionately known to old and young as "Little Joe".

He received his education in the public schools and attended the Methodist College in Valparaiso, IN and was an excellent student. He was always alert, even to the last moments in things of current issues.

During his early days in Bourbon he assisted his uncle, Omar Davis in a general store. For thirteen years he was associated with Dr. Matchette in the study of medicine, but never procticed this profession.

A number of years he was in the mercantile business, owning jewelry stores and was a partner at one time of the late Charles Neu in the Hardware business.

For ten years he was owner and manage of the local opera house.

Owing to ill health, in 1892, he was forced to retire from active business, but his keen vitality remained with him to the last.

As bank director he was able to attend the meetings until the past November.

He was always interested in civic, welfare, religious and social life. He was liberal to those in need.

At the age of eleven he was baptized in the Congregational Church, of Clinton, Michigan.

In 1876 he became a member of the Masonic Lodge and in 1889, a member of Order of Eastern Star. He held various offices in these organizations having been a Post Master and Past Patron.

In 1878, he was united in marriage to Miss Janet Arnold, daughter of the late Mr and Mrs. Isaac Arnold.

One daughter was born to this union, Honora Ruth, now Mrs. F. W. Kraft.

About two and a half years ago he had a serious heart attack from which he but partially rallied, but he was able to care for himself until the past three weeks.

Keen interest in youth kept him young in mind and spirit and it gave him great pleasure to see others enjoying life.

In his home life, when quite weak from his illness, he never forgot the little courtesies that made others happy.

The whole community will remember Mr. Davis as one of its most excellent business men, loyal to the town and community, to friend and neighbor and his life among us has left an indelible impression on us that will linger for aye and is a rich heritage for the widow and the daughter who remain to cherish his memory.

On the 1920 census it says he was a manager of a motion show(movies). It was hard to read on Ancestry.

Dear Chi Chi The problem is that there were several sets of Craft families in LaPorte. We know about the family of Zopher Craft but there was Robert Craft and Henry Craft also. They were brothers from Lycoming County Pa. Your names do not show up in our family information so could be in either Henry or Robert lines. Marshall County is nearby and perhaps they had moved there from LaPorte. But it would be helpful to know more about Francis Janet (Craft?) Do you have her age or birthplace and have you checked any records in LaPorte or Marshall Counties for birth or marriage information? Your Hanorah Ruth Davis will be remembered and if we find her as we proceed with these families, we will let you know. Hanorah is not too common as a name and if it is in the information it will be reported to you. You might post on the forum as well and find someone there that has your family information. Keep looking will let you know if we find anything. Regards, Dorothy Craft

Obituary of Schuyler, Colfax/Butler co Neb.

Wearied and worn with days of patient and increasing suffering, Mrs. Walter S. Jenkins passed away at the family residence in this city at an early hour Tuesday morning. Mrs. Jenkins became afflicted with systemic poisoning some fifteen years ago and since that time has been in ill health. The very best of medical skill was sought in hopes of relief from her suffering and for her final recovery, but all seemed to be of no avail as it was willed that her life's journey was to have its end. Mrs. Jenkins had been confined to her bed for some time previous to her death. Her condition grew much worse last February and since that time she has been practically an invaled. During all the time of her illness, the members of her family were ever present with their efforts and devotion to do all in their power to render her every possible care and comfort.

Emma Della Davis, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Caleb Davis, was born at Bourbon, IN on August 22, 1861, and passed away at Schuyler, Neb on July 3, 1923, at the age of 61 years 10 months and 11 days. When a little girl of eight years she came to Nebraska with her parents, who made their home in Butler county a half mile east of Octavia. She was united in marriage to Walter S. Jenkins at Linwood on November 21, 1880. To this union were born eight sons and three daughters. A little son, Walter died a number of years ago and was buried in the cemetery near Edholm. Two other sons, Herbert and a mere infant died since Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins moved to Schuyler. The mother will be buried in the Schuyler cemetery where rest the remains of these two little sons.

Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins resided on a farm in Butler county for a year after their marriage. They then moved to Schuyler and returned to their farm in 1910 and partly lived there and in Schuyler until 1916 when they gave up farming to make Schuyler their permanent home.

The surviving relatives are the husgand and their following sons and daughters: Edward W. Jenkins, Norman C. Jenkins; Everett Jenkins, Rolland Jenkins, all of Schuyler, Mrs. Guy Estes of Stockton, KS, and Mrs. Dewey Bartholemew of David City, Miss Lavone Jenkins of Schuyler, and George R. Jenkins of Mounds, OK and a brother , G.W. Davis, lived at Ashland CA.

95. FLORENCE M5 DAVIS (SAMUEL S.4, CATHERINE3, CALEB2, DANIEL1) was born November 1851 in LaPorte IN ;1880, 1900, 1910 in St. Louis MO39. She married CHARLES A. RATHBURN40 April 30, 1868 in Marshall Co IN, son of SAMUEL RATHBURN and JOANNA VANDEN. He was born June 26, 1846 in Gallia Co OH, and died October 25, 1880 in St. Louis MO.

Source: County Court Records Film reference number: 1651768 - 1651771

Spouse name: Rathburn, Charles A. Spouse gender: M

______________________________

Charles R. was called single in 1880 while living with his mother in Ohio. Yet, he was also listed with Florence in St. Louis.(Census Place: St.. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri Source: FHL Film 1254720 National Archives Film T9-0720 Page 1A First Enumeration It appears that they separated in 1880. He was a freight agent for the railroad on 1880. He was born in Gallia County, Ohio June 26, 1846 and died in St. Louis, Missouri October 25, 1880.

I found Florence in 1880, 1900 and 1910 in St. Louis. I have her as a Rathbun in 1900 and 1910. I wonder if she married Harry W. Know in 1911 in St. Louis. According to the 1880 census they had Edith age 10 in 1880 born in Indiana.

She may have been the Edith who maried Joseph Ellard in 1891.

I don't have a source for the wife of Charles Rathburn. I thought that Florence was the daughter of John and Lavana Gilbert and a widow of a Mr. Davis at the time of her marriage of Charles. If I am wrong, I would like to correct my files. I have her birth as November 1851 according to Census records.

Notes for BETTY (JULIA ELIZABETH) DAVIS:

Betty married Tom Frances and had Julia and Sid. Then married Herb Smith and he adopted julia and Sid. Betty only lived with Herb Smith a year and when he became disabled, she couldn't take it and left him.She was born in Joplin, MO. She died at 60in 1972. in Tulsa, OK. She has a stroke and would have been a vegetable and Bill lDavis had to pull the plug. She is buried in Memorial Gardens. Herb smith became disabled and married his nurse. Misty supported them.

Notes for TOM FRANCES:

Betty reared Julie and Sid. She was a good, responsible mother. Betty married a second time, Herb Smith, and didn't stay with him long, and she let him see his son Sid as much as he wanted to. They had a very good friendship. They would go on trips together. Tom Frances was her first husband. They had Julie. Julie was 3 yrs. old when Tommy Francis was striken with polio. He had to go to Warm Springs, GA.? where they had the best polio clinic. and he was completely paralyzed from the neck down. He had been a lawyer. He could write though in his wheel chair. He was a very very fine person. He was in NY. We went to visit him. They transfered him to several different places and finally brought him home after 4 or 5 years. Betty went to see him occasionally. Herb just had a wonderful spirit about him. He had been a good father. Betty didn't really want him to come home. She was upset. Bill just loved Julie. He would play with her!!and get down and let her climb all over his back and play bear with her. He was crazy about Julie. Julie's dad was gone after 3 years. Julie got raped in college. She became an alcoholic probably after that. Tom came home and Betty just couldn't take it so they agreed to divorce. I'm sure it was hard on Julie. Some of us in the family thought that was kind of rugged. We figured that Betty had been very pampered and couldn't take much. I would have been right there at his side. Betty played golf and bridge and had a nice life. Misty was wonderful . He settled money on Tommy because he loved Tommy. Put stocks and bonds in his name so he was supported the rest of his life comfortably. He was in an iron lung early on. He was a charming person. He was in a wheel chair. He told jokes and he was very entertaining. Everyone loved to be around Tommy. At one of these hospitals, there was a nurse who fell in love with him and he fell in love with her. She took care of him and was wonderful to him until the day he died. He was around 45 or so and caught the flu and died. They moved to NYC ,and I think he did a little legal work with paper. She was a good secretary. She turned him and lifted him. We went to see him several times when we were in PA and Princeton. We enjoyed him so. Her name was Jane.

Notes for RALPH EMERSON JR. DAVIS:

C & E Episcopalian. Ralph had a really good marriage of 50 years with Mary. Everyone loved him.

Ralph wrote me several letters. He was very encouraging. I really liked him and was very sorry to see him die.

Dear Chi Chi

I recieved your email today ,but I was unable to get the message. I assume

that it is for your new address (email). As I recall. you had indicated in your

last message that you were planning a move.

Hope all is well with you.

You may recall the hand written book by Floyd Davis for his thesis on

graduation from Ohio State University in June of 1882, titled "Imaginary

Functions". You mentioned that your son was a math major and might be interested

in seeing it. I have considered sending it to Ohio State for possible use in

their archive library. It si very fragile and not easily copied by any services

that I am aware of in the Vail area. I had both you and the University in mind

when I checked on copies. What suggestion do you have? Love Ralph

Dear Chi Chi; The thesis on mathematics is in a leather bound and handwritten

form. I am sure it is Floyd Davis' own hand writing. I have the name of several

high quality shops that specialize in this sort of thing in Denver. I'll get

some idea next time I'm there, and let you know. Thanks for the news of your

plans and please keep me informed. Love Ralph

Dick THomas:Ralph Davis, Jr. was a terrific person and I always liked him very

much. He lived in Boonville for many years and, essentially, took over

for my Dad in running the agricultural properties there that had been

started by my Uncle Ralph and Uncle Sid. He was an extremely popular

person in Boonville, yet he had come there from a much different

background in the East.

Notes for GERTRUDE ELIZABETH DAVIS:

Email 2001 from Bob F: Next in line was Gertrude. She married John Lynch, bore three children, Susan, Bill and Ralph. I've lost touch with them following some family stresses in the '60's and '70's, but I hope to restore the connections.

Trudy and John were divorced long ago, and she was married to David Scott

for some years. She died of cancer several years ago. Ralph, Jr. probably

can offer better specifics.

108. FLORENCE ELIZABETH5 DAVIS (FLOYD HUGH4, JOHN3, CALEB2, DANIEL1) was born November 22, 1900 in DesMoines, Iowa, and died August 1972 in 72 yrs old; Boonville,Cooper co MO. She married EMILE WOODSON THOMAS June 26, 1926 in Urbana, Champaign co ILL, son of EMILE THOMAS and VIRGINIA WOODSON. He was born August 24, 1900 in St. Louis,St. Louis City, MO, and died December 18, 1985 in 85 yrs. old ; Hutchinson, Reno co KS.

Notes for FLORENCE ELIZABETH DAVIS:

Dear ChiChi...........

Here is a little rundown on my parents that you kindly asked for:

Both were graduated from Soldan High School in St. Louis, but did not know each other in high school due to the very large student body.

Each chose to attend the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. They met while at Illinois. Mother majored in Landscape Architecture and my Father in Agriculture. She was a member of Kappa Delta sorority at Illinois, but my Father did not become a member of a fraternity, although he worked in the fraternity house where the famous All-American football player Red Grange was a member. He knew Grange fairly well. While at Illinois, my Father advanced to become Cadet Colonel and the top person in the Cavalry ROTC Division. In his senior year he had over 1,000 ROTC members under his command. The Cavalry was big-time back in the early 1920s, although it does not even exist anymore. The horse got replaced.

They married while still in college and both obtained jobs at the University upon graduation. However, within a short time they found a medium sized farm in Northern Illinois where Dad could handle all the work of farming the place and he and the owner of the land would split the profits. This went on for about three years,

In the meantime, Mother's two older brothers (Ralph and Sidney) came up with the idea that, if a proper farm could be found, they would purchase it and my parents would operate it. It would result in a three-way ownership. The resultant purchase turned out to be an 1,100 acre farm near Boonville, Missouri. The Davis brothers had the money and my Dad had the know-how of how to run a farming operation. Since my parents had no money at that time in their lives, it was a good arrangement. My parents lived in Boonville for the rest of their lives, except for about two years near the end of his life when he and his second wife (Nita Palmer) moved to Hutchinson, KS so she would be near members of her family when he would eventually die of cancer in 1985.

At some point, Sidney Davis conveyed his 1/3 of the Missouri farming operation to my parents.....then Ralph Davis, Sr. bought out the 2/3rds he did not own and became sole owner. My father remained to assist Ralph Davis, Jr. to take over as manager of the Missouri farming operations. My father then opened a company called The Farm Service Corporation (FSC) and it was involved in the sales and distribution of anhydrous ammonia (a nitrogen fertilizer for farm crops). My father pioneered Anhydrous ammonia in the state of Missouri after observing its use at the University of Mississippi agricultural farms, mostly on Cotton, in the South. The business was expanded to liquid feeding supplements (Morea) and Ralph Davis, Jr. became a partner with my parents in FSC, although my father continued to run the business until his retirement at about age 75. Emile Thomas became National President of the American Agricultural Institute in the early 1950s and was a widely recognized leader in that industry. During his term as National President he traveled extensively in promoting anhydrous ammonia. His own company expanded to three locations in Missouri.

Neither of my parents were particularly "religious". They professed to be Unitarians, but since there was no church of that denomination in Boonville, they did not participate. Instead, they saw to it that Doug and I both attended the Presbyterian Church in Boonville.

My father was a very smart businessman and ran his company very well during a time when nobody was able to make very much money in farming or in operating farming-related businesses. He authored several publications on successful farming operations. One I recall, and I still have a reprint of it, was "Merchandising Margins...A Necessity For Success". It focused primarily on successful merchandising of Anhydrous Ammonia.

My Mother was very involved in activities in Boonville. She held many positions in D.A.R. and was a state officer for many years. She was involved in AAUW and she loved gardening and was a long-time member of the Boonville Garden Club. I suppose that latter interest went back to her college degree at Illinois in landscape architecture. They build a beautiful new home on the outskirts of Boonville in 1953 and at the time it was considered to be the finest home in the community.

My parents traveled fairly extensively with Sidney Davis and his wife (South America, Alaska, Wales, etc.) The couples got along quite well, so it was a good combination. Sidney and Louise wanted the company of someone they knew, so Florence and Emile went along fairly often if my Dad could work it into his business schedule. If not, then my mother would accompany them herself.

My Mother was quite a bit younger than her two brothers....16 and 14 years respectively. As it turned out, my grandmother Elizabeth Davis always lived with us......so my Dad always had a mother-in-law on the premises. I think that was probably one of the reasons why Ralph and Sidney (especially Sidney) tried to do helpful things for my parents, like assisting them in actually getting into business with the Missouri farms.....simply because they were handling the brunt of taking care of Mrs.Davis and neither of the sons had to actually do it themselves. Even today that task often falls to the daughter, in most cases. Grandmother Davis was a pretty tough cookie and she had a family that had achieved some successes in life.....so she expected considerable respect, and got it. She died at a hospital in California, Missouri during the latter half of 1940 just after my younger brother Doug was born. I recall her holding the baby in the hospital, but she really did not understand that it was my mother's son. I believe an Alzheimer's-type of situation had impacted Mrs.Davis before she died.....but we just did not have a "name" for it back then.

My Mother died very suddenly in August of 1972 while sitting in a chair watching a television program. She had a bad heart, but her death was quite unexpected. She was classified as being "legally blind" at the time of her death, but she could still see some images and movements. What she could not do was drive her car. She often watched television programs while sitting right next to the screen, so she could follow the image movements and listen to the audio.

My Father died a very painful death with cancer. By the time he died the disease had spread to all parts of his body. The last time I saw him found him unconscious in a hospital bed in Hutchinson, KS with feeding tubes in his body. The feeding tubes were removed two days later and he died within 24 hours. It was a blessing.

I would say my parents were happily married for the most part. They had a very large number of friends in Boonville and many mourned the passing of each. I was proud to be one of their sons...and I am sure Doug feels the same. My Father re-married about a year or so after Mother died. But I believe he was only married about nine or ten years before he passed away.

I hope this gives a bit of insight into the lives of my parents. These are necessarily only a few highlights that I recall, but it has been a good exercise for me to recall the past in this way. I hope it provides the insight you are looking for.

Regards,

Dick Thomas
