The descendants of SoIomon Davis are to hold their ninth annual reunion Saturday, August 6th, at the home of Mrs. Charlotte Davis in Essex Junction. This yearly reunion is a popular event with the Davis family and since there are nearly 500 of the descendants now living in Vermont alone, it has become'not so much a small family gathering as a good-sized celebration. The name of Davis came to be very common in this country at an early date. By 1700, over fifty families of the name, all of Welch-English stock, had settled along the coast from Maine to Virginia. From one of these families, one which had settled in Connecticut Solomon Davis, a . vigorous and picturesque young giant, a few years after the Revolution, took his bride in an ox-cart, and started north.
