1897 Biography - E. W. Davis

Davis, E. W., was born at Pompey Hill, Onondaga county, March 10, 1824, and came to Niagara county with his parents, Sewell and Lucy Davis, who settled at Reynale's Basin in 1833. Mr. Davis was educated in the common schools of his day, to which he has added through life by reading and close observation. In 1852 married Laura H., daughter of Enoch Hyde. Mr. Davis through an active business life has been identified as a shipper and forwarder of grain and produce and canal traffic. Mr. Davis is one of the conservative men of his town, of sterling integrity, and it may well be said his word has ever proven as good as his bond.
