Biography of Thomas M. Davey


Davey, Thomas M., Buffalo, was born in Canterbury, England, March 29, 1834. He received a liberal English boarding-school education. In 1857 he came to America ready to grapple with whatever fate his adopted country might have in store for him. When leaving his native home he intended to go to Chicago, but after reaching Buffalo he found his means exhausted and was compelled to make Buffalo his home, where he has by hard work and economy built up a large and successful business and is to-day one of the leading architects and civil engineers in the city. Mr. Davey is prominently identified with the different societies of Buffalo, being a member of the Buffalo Historical Society, a life member of the Buffalo Library, the Acacia Club, Merchants' Exchange and is a Mason of high rank. In 1859 he married Alma Haehn, a native of Prussia, who came to America in 1853.
