I am searching for the parents of Calvin W. Davis. He was one of several brothers and
sisters born at Hudson, Columbia County, New York in 1816. His father was a minister and he left home at an early age to learn the trade of whip making in Westfield, Mass. He traveled the countryside in New York and Pennsylvania in pursuit if his trade. He married his wife Susan in Maryland, Ostego County, NY around 1838. In 1844 he moved to Aurora, Cayuga County, NY then to Arcade, Wyoming County, NY. In 1860 he made his final move to Chatham Twp, Tioga County, PA and was considered to be a pioneer settler in the area.
