Notes for Francis W "Frank" DAVIS

Residences & events:

1/5/1920 Walnut St, Arcola, Douglas Co, IL. The census recorded Frank, 42, as a teamster with wife Anna, 37 and several children: Lester, 15, Everett, 13, Ralph, 11, Edith, 9, Cora, 7, Easter, 4, Arthur, 2 yr 9 mo, and Ross, 5 months. They rented their house.

4/4/1930 Same place. That year at census time Frank W was 53 year old but had no occupation. He married for the first time at age 27. Annie was 48, married at 21, and they still had a full house which included: Everett, 24, Cora, 17, Easter, 15, Arthur, 13, Ross, 10, William, 7, Dorothy A, 5, and Thomas, 1. They still rented their home, valued at $10, but they did own a radio.

His birth year is 1877 in cemetery records.

Relatives gave 3/1/1925 as his death date but since he was counted in the 1930 census, that is obviously incorrect. Cemetery records have 1949 as his death year.

Buried next to Frank and Anna is a baby, Gale Edwin Davis, 1946-1946, probably a grandson.
