Charles D. Davis was born in Bakersfield, Dec. 18, 1842, son of Solomon and Almira Davis, and came to this town in 1861, enlisting the same year in Co. E., 7th Reg. Vt. Vol., giving four years and five months of loyal service to his country, being honorably discharged at the end of the war.
On December 31, 1869 he married Miss Abbie V. Gray, also of Johnson, who survives him. The day following his demise was the 45th anniversary of their wedding. He is also survived by two sons, Walter A. and Winford E.and one brother, Rep. F.F. Davis, of Johnson, and one sister Mrs. Lavinia Wood of Hyde Park. Two daughters passed away in earlier years- Flossie in 1891, at the age of three and a half, and Bertha in 1894 at nearly twenty years of age.
Mr. Davis had held many town offices, which he faithfully filled. He was a kind and devoted husband and father, a good neighbor, and an honored townsman, respected and loved by all. Though having no regular church affiliation, many Christian virtues were exemplified in his daily life. He participated with a keen relish in all patriotic movements and gathering, ever holding a warm corner in his heart for the "boys" of his company, one of whom, Fred Fuller of Jericho, came to join the home veterans in the last solemn rites at the grave of his loved comrade.
His was a good life, leaving a good example to all, and he will be greatly missed, especially by those nearest and dearest, who have the tenderest sympathy of their many friends in the community and elsewhere.
