PFC John W Davis

The News, Frederick, MD, August 3, 1944
PFC. JOHN W. DAVIS, son of Mrs. Dorothy Falk, 417 North Bentz street, was killed in action in France on July 11, according to an official notification from the War Department. Pfc. Davis was 22 on D-Day.

Pfc. Davis had been in Company A since he was 15, it is understood, re-enlisting each three years until the local unit was federalized in 1941. He remained with the outfit throughout its training in the states and went with it to England and then to France, as far as relatives knew. The last letter received by his mother was written from France and said he was getting along very well.

Pfc. Davis is a son of Mrs. Falk by a previous marriage. He attended Frederick High School and, prior to the war, was employed as a paper hanger by Edward Favorite. Besides his mother, he is survived by his grandfather, Thomas Eyler, and a halfsister, Patricia Falk, both at the same address, where he resided before leaving here.
