Frank Davis, farmer and stock-raiser, section 3, Tampico Township, was born in Lyndon, this county, Sept. ?6, 1854. His father, Isaac S. Davis, was a native of New Jersey and a farmer; his mother's maiden name was Jane Belt, and she was a native of Ohio. His parents emigrated to the West in 1840, and were among the first settlers in Lyndon Township. His father died in August, 1881, aged 66 years, and was buried at the Lyndon Demetery. His mother is still living with her son Frank, and is now 68 years of age. Mr. Davis, the subject of this sketch, is the youngest of a family of seven children; he attended the common schools of his native township until he was 14 years of age, when his parents removed to Tampico Township, locating upon a splendid farm of 160 acres, where he developed a taste for agricultural pursuits, and since the death of his father he has been the possessor of the homestead. The whole acreage is well imporved and in fine condition. Mr. Davis is also successfully increasing his operations in rearing live stock. In his political views he is a Republican.
