YOUNGSVILLE, July 7 - Charles Roland Davis, 59, of Rt. 1, Youngsville died tonight at the Veterans Hospital in Durham after a short illness.
He was a native of Granville County and had lived in Franklin County for the past 10 years.
He was a member of the Good Hope Christian Church where funeral services will be held Sunday at 3:30 pm conducted by the pastor, the Rev. E.M. Carter. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Louie D. Davis; four daughters, Mrs. William H. Shields of Augusta, Ga, Mrs. James Mitchell of Rt. 1 Youngsville and Matilda Ann Davis and Judy Davis of the home; four sons, Roy V. Davis of Franklinton, Nathanial P., C.R. Jr., and Claude E. Davis of the home; five sisters, Miss Meona Davis of Rt. 1 Franklinton, Mrs. Quince Lowery of Rt. 1 Youngsville, Mrs. Cora Perry, Mrs. Ethel Allen and Mrs. Mary Allen of Raleigh; two brothers Bruce Davis of Rt. 3, Wake Forest, and Otis Davis of Rt. 1 Youngsville; and six grandchildren.
When I was about 10 years old, my father and I sat at the kitchen table and drew a family chart with a chewed and nubby old #2 pencil and a sheet of notebook paper. I still have that paper, yellowed and creased. It was the start of a life long hobby and one of the greatest gifts my father gave me. I study the Allen family of Wake County, NC, the Davis family of Granville County, NC, the Stancil and Johnson families of Johnston County, NC and all their collateral lines.
