    Charles Allen Davis, son of the Rev. and Mrs. D. K. Davis, was born Oct. 4, 1865, in Humboldt, Kans. During his early childhood the family moved to Alfred Station, N. Y., and his boyhood was spent in western New York state. He was educated in the public schools there and in Alfred academy.
    After teaching school for a year at Flandreau, S. D., where he met his wife-to-be, he came to Milton in 1894 and entered into partnership with his brother, Will K. Davis, as editors and publishers of the Milton Telephone succeeding J. C. Barthoff. On April 17, 1895, he married Miss Alice Nelson, Flandreau, S. D., in a double wedding ceremony at which time his bride's sister, Miss Anna Nelson, became the bride of Joseph Swenson, Flandreau.
    They came immediately to Milton taking rooms on the first floor of Goodrich hall. Three years later, when his health demanded out-of-door work, they moved to Smyth, S. D., where they resided on a farm for a time before returning to Milton. They lived on farms in this locality until 1917 when he entered the employ of the Burdick corporation, where he remained until 1931, when he again became associated with the Davis Printing company. He continued his work with this company until 1938 after it had moved to Waukesha as the Davis-Greene corporation.
    Mr. Davis had been in poor health for a number of years, although he has had charge of the Drew nursery the last two years. His wife died Feb. 14, 1943. He was a member of the Milton S.D.B. church and faithfully attended the various services.
    Survivors are a daughter, Miss Hazel Davis, Wauwatosa; two sons, Dr. Myrl N. Davis, Appleton, and Tech. Sgt. Allison Davis, in India; one brother, Will K. Davis, Daytona Beach, Fla.; and three grandchildren. Two sisters, Minnie and Ida preceded him in death.
