Funeral of Davis Is Friday
Oneonta—Delaware County Coroner Raymond Miller has issued a verdict of accidental death in the case of Franklin P. Davis, 49, of Roxbury. Mr. Davis owner of the Log Cabin Restaurant off Route 30 near Roxbury, died at 1:40 a.m. yesterday at the Margaretville Hospital.
He was admitted after his car left Route 30 and rammed a utility pole near his home in Roxbury about 10:30 p.m., Monday, state police said. His only injuries appeared to be lacerations of the head, arm and left knee, said state police, adding that there was no apparent reason for the crash. Coroner Miller, a Roxbury funeral director, issued his verdict after an autopsy by Dr. E. Wyn Evans, a Walton pathologist. The coroner said Mr. Davis died of internal hemorrhaging which resulted in a ruptured liver. Before entering the restaurant and tavern business some three years ago, Mr. Davis had been a farmer for 15 years in the Grand Gorge area of Delaware County.
He was a member of the Delaware County Hotel and Restaurant Association.
A native of Parkston in Sullivan County, Mr. Davis was born Jan. 31, 1917, son of Abram and Maude (Silvernail) Davis. He married Hilday Lockwood at Montrose, Pa., in 1939. Included among survivors are his wife; a son, John Davis, Rosbury; a daughter, Mrs. Joyce Reed, living in California; his father and stepmother, Mr. and Mrs. Abram Davis of Roxbury.
Other survivors are four brothers, Claude Davis, Livingston Manor; Carl, Arkville; Halbert, New Berlin; Abraham, Utica; three sisters, Mrs. Madeline West, Oneonta; Mrs. Pearl Quinn, Dayton, Ohio; Mrs. Marion Smith, Dayton, Ohio; two half-brothers, Arnold Davis, Roxbury; Gerald Davis, Hillsdale, and several nieces and nephews.
