The tombstone for James Hyrum Davis simply says 1857. His death certificate lists his birth as December 1857. The Kaysville Ward Records (film #26050) say December 1857 as does his Elders Certificate. On page 230 of film #26050 it says "From page 230 to page 277 contains 907 names copied in full from old records by Nathan Reeves Ward clerk 1902.[almost 50 years later]" Page 238 says "James Hyrum Davis son Wm & Eliz born 3 Nov. 1856 Kaysville and blessed 5 July 1857 by Thomas Squires."
The following information is taken from one his life stories.
James Hyrum Davis was born Nov. 3, 1856 at Kaysville, Davis Co., Utah, the youngest son of William Davis and Elizabeth Bishop. He was born two years after the family arrived in Utah from Herefordshire, Eng. The following year was a year of near Starvation in that vicinity and the family had a hard time to get along. When James was about seven the family home burned and all their records and possessions with it. For the rest of his life he was not sure of the day of his birth, (After his death a record of it was found in the Kaysville Ward records) The birth dates found on his death certificate and census are a guess on his part and that of his family.
