Dr. A. G. Davis occupies a leading position in the ranks of the medical fraternity of Phillips County and is now enjoying a large and growing practice in Logan and the surrounding country. He was born near St. Joseph in Buchanan Co., MO, Aug 9, 1869, the son of Isabel (Glenn) and Warren G. Davis, both pioneers of that county. On his paternal side of the family the doctor is descended from Welsh and Scotch ancestors, while from his mother he inherits strains of pure Irish and Dutch blood, her ancestors being from Holland and Ireland. Warren Davis was engaged in farming and stock raising in MO. and sent his son to the country school. While a lad he determined to study medicine. Completing the preparatory schools when only seventeen he entered North Western Medical College at St. Joseph, but as the law required a student of medicine to be 21 years old before he graduated, Dr. Davis was required to spend one extra year in study before the College could confer upon him the degree of Doctor of Medicine. He was of age in August and graduated with the class of 1890 and 1891, the following February, one of the youngest men ever graduated from the institution. The doctor located soon after leaving college at Amazonia, MO., practicing there about a year. In 1892 Dr. Davis came to Logan, as one of the pioneer physicians of this region, and he has been actively engaged in the professional work here for over 20 years. When he first came to Phillips County the country was still new; the people lived far apart which necessitated long drives, facing blinding blizzards on the open prairies and the heat of summer. He is registered to pratice in MO., Kans., and Okla., having been engaged in professional work in all three states. Dr. davis is now district health officer in Logan, he is a member of the Masons, a past master of this order, and a Protestant. On Sept 14, 1891, the doctor married Aurora Belle, the daughter of John H. and Martha Elizabeth Thomas, natives of Buchanan Co., MO. In 1891 he came to Kansas and settled at Logan. Mrs. Davis was reared in Buchanan Co., MO, where she was educated in the public schools. There are two children in the Davis family, Beulah Opal, born July 9, 1892, who received her education from the Logan schools, and is now the wife of Guy W. Presnell, living at Beloit, Kansas; and Alexander Paul, born July 7, 1902 and is now attending school at Logan.

Dr. Alexander G. Davis died May 22, 1933 at the age of 63 years, 9 months and 3 days and is buried in the Logan Cemetery. Funeral services were held in the Logan Methodist Church, which Dr. and Mrs. Davis have been members since 1903.
