Davis was mustered into the Army, Co. K 42nd infantry, in Warrick Co. Ind. to fight on the side of the North in the Civil War. He incurred a broken hip during the War from which he never fully recovered. He wore a built up shoe and walked with a cane to correct his limping. As soon as Davis was able, after his hip injury, he was made wagon master of his Company, going up and down the Kentucky and Tennessee Mountains. After he came home from the War, he studied to be a veterinary. The book from which he gained the most knowledge cost $4.00. People came from miles around to get him to doctor his livestock.
In 1881 Davis helped build Mt. Gilead Baptist Church in Warrick County, south of Boonville, Indiana.
Davis bought a farm in Warrick County about three miles south of Boonville, on what is now the state road to Yankeetown, Ind. Here is where he and his wife Eliza lived and where their children were born. Their children attended Masters Grade School.
Davis also had a fruit orchard on his farm. Their house and barn were made with logs. They built an ice house in the barn. It was packed with saw dust and corn stalk pith pounded in between the walls. The boys cut blocks of ice in the winter and stored it there. It lasted most of the summer. Here is where they kept their milk, butter, eggs, vegetables, etc.
