Archivistische beschrijving

Naam van de archiefvormer


Frank Davy was a stone mason who lived in Port Stanley, Ontario. He joined the Canadian military as part of the 1st Hussars Regiment in London, Ontario in 1912. He went on to serve as a veterinary sergeant in the First World War as part of the 7th Canadian Mounted Rifles. He was wounded in a gas-attack during the war which later deprived him of a sense of smell. He settled in Port Stanley after the war and maintained a life-long interest in horticulture, horses and books. At one time he taught riding at Alma College in St. Thomas, Ontario. His wife Janet was a teacher of modern languages and together they had five children, four sons and one daughter. She died in 1958. Mr. Davy died tragically in a fire at his cottage on Carlow Road on January 10, 1968. His lengthy obituary in the St. Thomas Times-Journal describes him as "a man who everyone knew about, but no one really knew...", "an expert stonemason...", "a great reader and collector of books...," and "a learned and intelligent man."
