On Sunday morning Davis’s body was found lying on the ground by the kitchen.

The coroner’s jury was of the opinion that the fall did not kill the man, and rendered a verdict that deceased came to his death by strangulation.

Davis, Harry Irvin
MDP, November 19, 1892. Davis—Nov. 18th, in this city, Harry Irvin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. T. Davis, aged 18 years, 7 months, 2 days.
Harry I. Davis, son of W. T. Davis, died Friday night at 8 o’clock, acute Bright’s disease being the cause of death. Two weeks ago, Saturday night, Harry Davis, whom some one had named the “Boy Orator,” made a speech in favor of Grover Cleveland and the Democratic County ticket at Westtown. He spoke for two hours and at the conclusion, fell rather than sank into a chair, in utter exhaustion. He remained at Mr. Clark’s all night, and returned to this city, Sunday. Going to his home where proud relatives awaited him, he reclined upon a sofa, remarking that he was thoroughly exhausted. He grew worse day by day and soon became delirious. He recognized visitors, but forgot them as quickly as they passed out of sight. His active, brain was not in repose for an instant, but constantly conducted cases, or rambled in politics.
His illness was first thought to have been caused by brain congestion but, later, the symptoms of Bright’s disease developed. Harry’s condition steadily grew worse, and the doctors in consultation, Friday, felt that his end was near. Death came at 8 o’clock. It was a blow which made each remaining member of the family almost ill. For a week past, Mr. and Mrs. Davis, had staid almost constantly by the bedside of the boy. They loved him only a parent can know how devotedly and tenderly. He was a good boy. He had a strong character. He was respected by the boys of his own age. They saw a fine future for him, and built hopes which are now crushed. The effect was terrible upon the parents. A physician has been needed for them; for the brother and sister. Kind friends and neighbors have been with them steadily since the blow came.
Young Henry Davis was a boy of more than usual promise. He would have been 19 next April, yet he was known all over the county. He was born in Buffalo, and came to this city with his parents about nine years ago. He was educated at Wallkill Academy. He entered the law office of W. F. O’Neill’s, Esq., about two years ago, and for some time after kept up his studies, taking private lessons under Prof. Roberts. This fall he became very much interested in politics, as already told. He worked hard to master speeches and did considerable speech making in various parts of the county. He was of a highly nervous temperament; and was always exhausted at the conclusion of his addresses. While not the direct cause, it is more than probable that this exhausting work hastened his death. The parents can remember now that Harry was a sick boy long ago. But he was ambitious and active and refused to be ill.
Harry was the younger son of W. I. Davis, the well-known conductor on the Ontario & Western, and Emma Louise Ludlum. He was a grandson of the venerable John T. Ludlum, who died at Unionville, about a year ago. Beside his parents he is survived by his older brother, Will, who is employed in the O. & W. office and Ethel the youngest of the family, who lives at home.
It is indeed a sad household which death has thus rudely entered, and the deep and heartfelt sympathy of the entire community will go out to the affected family in their great sorrow. Harry was a member of Mrs. H.K. Wilcox’s class of young men in the First Presbyterian Sabbath school in this city. The funeral will be held Monday, at 2 p.m., at the house on Little avenue and will be conducted by Rev. Dr. Gordon and Rector Evans. The pall bearers will be Bert Royce, Richard Knight, A. Lipfield, Fred Boyd, Will Ketcham, and O. Macardell, Jr.

D. 1, Box 126, of the Rosendale road. Mr. Czerwinski suffered a compound fracture of the left leg, between the knee and the ankle and contusions of the right shoulder. Both were removed to the Benedictine Hospital following the accident in the Conner ambulance. Mr. Davis died in the hospital at 5:15 o’clock this morning. District Attorney, N. LeVan Haver was notified of Mr. Davis’s death by the police department, and ordered an autopsy performed by Dr. J.S. Taylor and Dr. Maurice H. Silk. The question of whether an inquest would be held in the death of Mr. Davis will depend on the results of an investigation of the accident which is now being made by the police department, the district attorney said. It was shortly before 11 o’clock last night that the police department received a telephone call stating a pedestrian had been struck on Washington avenue, between Pearl and Janet streets. Officers Hyatt and Van Aken in one of the police cars responded and made a preliminary investigation. The police also talked with Czerwinski at the hospital and he told them, according to police, that he was driving down Washington avenue on his motorcycle at a speed between 25 and 30 miles an hour. He said that when about 25 feet away he saw Mr. Davis step off the curb into the road, and that he swung his machine to the left to avoid hitting him. The right side of the motorcycle, however, hit Mr. Davis, knocking him to the pavement. Czerwinski said that Davis was walking almost diagonally across the street at the time. As the motorcycle upset Czerwinski’s leg was pinned under it. The machine was not damaged badly.

Mr. Davis for years was actively identified with the firm of Davis & Wilson, stationers, who occupied the Charles Kerr store in the Ulster County Savings Institution building on Wall street, opposite the court house, and later when Mr. Wilson retired from the business, Mr. Davis, formerly an employee of the concern, was invited back from the Remington Typewriter firm in New York to take charge of the activities of the bookstore. Mr. Davis with his additional New York experience, made good at once. The business began to broaden and the firm became Forsyth & Davis, Inc., moving to the other side of Wall street, next door to the George B. Styles & Son jewelry store, adjoining the State of New York National Bank.
Mr. Davis built up the business of the store and a wholesale branch was added, and then during the years of the automobile age in Kingston, he added an auto branch and garage known as the Eagle Garage on Main street. Later the Forsyth & Davis Motor Car Co., was organized and a salesroom and conditioning facilities, with storage and repair department, was opened several blocks from the Wall street store. The firm represented leading makers of automobiles including the Franklin, Packard and the Pierce Arrow.
In the years before the first World War, Forsyth & Davis sold the Wall street store to Frank Forman for an amount said to be $90,000 for the site and building. The Forsyth & Davis store was then opened in the Forsyth building on Main street, next door to the county clerk’s office. The building was extended to the sidewalk in front and plate glass show windows installed. The Eagle Garage was later sold to a group of Kingston men and Forsyth & Davis, Inc., bought a site on Green street on which was erected a salesroom and auto repair shop.
In late years Mr. Davis had been leading a retired life.
