Biography of Charles S. Davis


Davis, Charles S., Buffalo, son of Samuel H. and Bertha A. (Wheeler) Davis, was born in Detroit, Mich., September 1, 1862. His mother is a cousin of Ella Wheeler Wilcox. His excellent educational opportunities fitted him for a position in the Merchants' and Manufacturers' National Bank of Detroit, which he filled so satisfactorily that eventually he became teller. In 1885 he associated himself with his father in the wholesale fish business, under the firm name of S. H. Davis & C. In 1891 he came to Buffalo and engaged in the same business; and in 1893 he organized the Davis Fish Company, of which he became, and still remains, vice-president and manager. Under his efficient direction the company has established a large and constantly increasing trade, and has become one of the largest wholesale fish concerns in Buffalo. Mr. Davis is a prominent 32d degree Mason, holding membership in Washington Lodge No. 240, F. & A. M. In October, 1887, he married Martha J. Crittenden of Jackson, Mich., and they have two children, Augusta and Helen.
