     Judge Henry Eugene Davies was born on 8 February 1805 in Black Lake.1 He was brought up on his father's farm, attended the district school, and when fourteen years old was received into the family of Judge Alfred Conkling as a law student. He was admitted to the bar in 1826 and began the practice of his profession at Buffalo, N.Y., becoming prominent as a lawyer and as a Whig politician. In 1830 he was admitted into partnership with his uncle, Judge Samuel A. Foote, in New York City. In 1848 Judge Foote retired from practice and Davies became associated in partnership with Judge William Kent, son of Chancellor Kent. He was a member of the Common Council of the city in 1840, was elected corporation counsel in 1850, justice of the supreme court in 1855 and of the court of appeals in 1859. He was chief justice of the court for two years, his term expiring in 1867, when he declined re-election. He was the friend and confidential adviser of President Fillmore and accompanied him to Europe in 1855. In 1868 with his son, Julian Tappan Davies, he formed a law partnership with Judge Noah Davis which lasted till Davis's election to the supreme bench of the state in 1872, after which Judge Davies continued in active practice with his son until his death. He was counsel and trustee of the Mutual Life Insurance Company, receiver of the Erie Railway in 1861 and a commissioner for the city in the matter of an underground railroad. He was Dean of the law department of the University of the City of New York, 1870-81, and president of the Institution for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb. He married Rebecca Waldo Tappan, daughter of John Tappan and Sarah Salisbury.1 Judge Henry Eugene Davies died on 17 December 1881 in New York City at the age of 76.1

Rev. John Davies

M, b. 27 June 1831, d. 3 October 1908
Rev. John Davies
(1831 - 1908)
The Dogpole Chapel, Shrewsbury
     Rev. John Davies. Minister at the Tabernacle Welsh Independent Chapel of Dogpole, Shrewsbury. He was born on 27 June 1831 in Llansamlet, Glamorgan. He was the son of John Davies and Margaret Davies. Rev. John Davies was baptised on 17 July 1831 at Borth Calvinistic Methodist, Llanfihangel Geneu'r Glynn [now Llandre], Cardigan.1 He married Mary A. Jones, daughter of Thomas Jones and Jane (Unknown), on 24 August 1869 in Old Chapel, Llanbrynmair, the service was conducted by the Rev. S. Roberts M.A.2 On 4 April 1881 Rev. John Davies and Mary A. Jones were living in 8 Claremont Bank, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.3 Rev. John Davies died on 3 October 1908 in Oak Villa, Newtown, Montgomeryshire, at the age of 77. In the grant of probate of 13 November to his widow the effects were to the value of £54 5s.4,5

"In the year 1866 a call was given to the Rev. John Davies of Sirhowy, Mon., which was accepted. The recognition services took place in September of that year. The following account of the event appeared in the "Dysgedydd" (Congregationalist) for November 1866:- "On Saturday night, September 29th, Mr. Jones, Wrexham, went through the opening service and sermons by the Revs. S. Edwards, Machynlleth, & W. Ambrose, Portmadoc. On Sunday morning, at 7-30 a prayer meeting was held and at 10 a.m. the Rev. John Davies opened the service, & Messrs. Edwards & Ambrose preached. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the Recognition Meeting took place, when addresses were given by the Revs. S. Edwards & J. Jones, Smethcote, and letters of recommendation were read from the church at Sirhowy, and the Monmouthshire Association. Remarks were made about the difficulties of a Welsh minister in an English town by Mr. Edwards. The meetings were encouraging in every respect, and it was pleasing to notice the unanimity in every branch of the church; the congregation is on the increase, more interest taken in the Sunday school, and the church is progressing very favourably.
The Rev. John Davies is a native of Llansamlet, near Swansea. His parents, John & Margaret Davies, were distinguished for their piety, and he was especially indebted to his mother for the good impressions he received in his youth. He was received into church membership when only ten years of age, and commenced to preach when about seventeen. At the end of about twelve months, during which he exercised his talent in preaching on Sundays in the chapels of the neighbourhood, he went in 1855 to the Normal College, Swansea, which was at the time presided over by Dr. Evan Davies, a learned man and excellent schoolmaster. In 1856 he went to Bala College, which was then under the care of the Rev. M.D. Jones. In June 1858 he was received into Brecon College, where he earned for himself a good name as a successful student and an acceptable preacher. He had for his fellow students the late principal E. Herber Evans, D.D. of Bangor College, and Professor D. Rowlands, B.A., of Brecon College. At the end of his course he received a unanimous call from the Congregational church at Sirhowy, Monmouthshire, which was then, as it is now, one of the most influential churches in South Wales. His predecessor was the late Rev. Noah Stephens, afterwards of Liverpool, one of the ablest preachers of the past generation. Here he laboured with diligence until the year 1866, when he received a call from Shrewsbury. Though a Welsh pastorate in an English town is beset with many difficulties and discouragements, owing to the shifting nature of the congregation, and the difficulty of retaining the children, Mr. Davies stuck to his post for more than thirty years. In September 1896 he was compelled to resign on consequence of ill-health, to the great regret of his people, by whom he was greatly beloved. He was presented with a purse of gold on his retirement."
