Frederick Henry Davis Notes.

Contributor: chetman Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

BIRTH: Appears on Nebraska State Census, one male under 16. CHRISTENED: Trinity Cathedral, Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska. MARRIAGE: Trinity Cathedral, Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska. DEATH: Harrisburg, , Pennsylvania. BAPTISM, ENDOWMENT, SEALED TO PARENTS & SPOUSE: Computer IGI Frederick Henry Davis, born 10 June, 1853, in Fairfield, Iowa, was not christened until 24 September, 1862, in Omaha at the Trinity Cathedral Church, the same time as his other brothers and sister. He first appears by name on the 1860 U.S. Census in Omaha, Douglas County, N. Territory of Nebraska, listed as seven years old. In 1863 Professor Beal bought a church building in Omaha which he had removed to the southeast corner of Fifteenth and Capitol Avenue, and he entered upon a prosperous career of teaching and managing the school known as Omaha High School, or Professor Beal's school. Frederick and his sister, Elizabeth, were registered in that school the first year of its opening, 1863. The registry listed the names of Miss Lizzie Davis and Frederick Davis. Frederick ws reared to adult age and here he received in his youth the advantages of the pubic schools of the period. Mr. Davis initiated his banking career in February, 1872, when he assumed the position of messenger for the First National Bank, with which institution he has continued his active association during the long intervening years and in such his ability and effective service won him advancement to positions of continuously increasing trust and responsibility. Thus it is to be noted that he gave long and effective service as cashier of the bank, that he was later elected vice president, and he was elected president in April, 1914. Dr. Robert H. Clarkson and family moved to Omaha in 1865 as he was consecrated Bishop of Nebraska and Dakota. He established Nebraska College and Brownell Hall (school) in 1866. This school was located next to the residence of Herman and Elizabeth. Dr. Clarkson's daughter, Meliora Clarkson, became the bride of Frederick 16 Mar.1876. An unexpected visit from the uncle of Elizabeth and Frederick, John Bennion, occurred during February of 1873. John had been back to his homeland, Hawarden, Wales, for a visit to his relatives, and had collected much genealogy concerning his relatives and ancestors. He visited with his niece and nephew for a few hours and recorded the account in his journal: Feb 11 1873 (Tuesday) Found my nephew Frederick Davies and niece, Mrs. Kountze I spent most of the day with them took supper with the Family My visit was made very agreeable I found them a very respectable family At 6 P.M. took train for Ogden By 1874 Frederick was listed as a Bill Clerk for the First National Bank of Omaha. The City Directory for that year listed his residence at Eighth and Howard (the same as Herman and Elizabeth, before he was married). The first grain elevator built in Omaha was in 1875, at the corner of Jones and Seventh Streets. Frederick was secretary and treasurer of this venture. By 1876 Frederick had become a paying teller in the bank and held this position for several years. He assumed the position of assistant cashier, in addition to teller, in 1879, and acted in these two positions for several years. He moved up to cashier in 1886, and also became member of the board of directors for the Union Stock Yards Bank when it opened for business the same year. The building and home of the First National Bank of Omaha is one of the most modern and attractive in the Nebraska metropolis. It was completed in January, 1917, and is a steel, brick and concrete structure of fourteen stories in height. Frederick and Meliora's first residence after marriage was 9th South Pierce, but in 1878 they moved to a home at 2019 St. Mary's Avenue. They later moved to 620 S. Twentieth Street. By 1914 Frederick was president of the bank and his son, Thomas Latham Davis, was cashier. Remained as president until his death in 1935.

Frederick Henry Davis was 35 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
