He was born in Steuben County, N. Y., in 1828. Alson W. Davis removed to Lake County, Ill., when Chicago was a mere trading post, and was reared and married in that county. In 1859 he returned to Steuben County, N. Y., and while there enlisted in the First New York Artillery for three years, or during the war, and after about two years’ service with the Army of the Potomac was discharged on account of ill-health, but after about six months’ rest improved so in health that he again joined the army, enlisting in Company G, Twenty-second New York Cavalry. He was taken prisoner at Weldon Railroad, near Richmond, Va., in 1864, and was kept in captivity in Andersonville, Libby, Florence and Charleston prisons, and died a paroled prisoner at Annapolis, Md., April 4, 1865, and is buried in the National Cemetery. He was a cabinet-maker by trade, and was a son of Lemuel C. Davis, who was of Welsh descent, and a farmer of Connecticut, and died in Lake County, Ill. Judge Noah C. Davis, of the New York Supreme
Court, who was appointed by President Grant, is his nephew. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Phelps Co., MO. (This info appeared in an article about his son George Wesley Davis.)
