    Summary: The husband of Nancy Davis, and father of Fred and Willie Davis. He was seriously ill at the St. Clair mission station in 1980, but recovered. In April 1909, he was charged with, but acquitted of, indecent exposure at St. Clair. It seems that the case was fabricated by a white farmer nearby with whom Davis had quarrelled so that Davis would be expelled from the mission. Later he left St. Clair, but returned in March 1920 after his wife had died. See Our Aim, March 1908; also Singleton Argus, 24 April 1909.
