DAVIS, Ralph Harold. The Davis Family of Connecticut, New York, Brier Island and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, 1609-1997 : A History and Genealogy. [Halifax]: The Author, n.d. [1997]. "Pagination and printing by William Richard Dav is, Sentinel Printing, 14 Kirk Street, Yarmouth, N.S." Pp 1-204. Many illustrations in the text. 8vo, illustrated cardcovers.

"The illustration of Grand Passage shows Long Island (on the left), where Ethel Davis had owned a home lot, and Brier Island (on the right), where he lived and is buried. Ethel had been raised in Derby township, New Haven county, Connecticut, U.S.A., where his great-grandfather, John Davis, had lived in 1690. Ethel Davis came here with his Loyalist German in-laws and his Loyalist military associates. Ethel Davis’ widow walked to Halifax for a deed to land on Long Island. Their grandson, Samuel Davis, saved shipwrecked men by believing his “vision of the night”. Capt. Sam Davis resettled his family in Yarmouth, and helped his sons, Ralph and Oscar, establish the R.H. Davis & Co. Ltd. business there. The business celebrated 100 years in 1997. This narrative, collected by Ralph’s grandson, Ralph Harold Davis, follows the family history through to 1997."

"In 1980, Wolfville celebrated the 150th anniversary of receiving its present name, and those particularly interested in the town's beginnings and edevelopment suggested that the full story be recorded. In January 1982, a committee from the local Historical Society began to compile a historical account. Deciding to use the skills of many writers, the Society then procured the financial assistance of the New Horizons Program of the Department of Health and Welfare. Two grands enabled thesociety to publish the community's first full-length history. 'Mud Creek' begins with 'Before History' and continues through the periods of the Micmac Indians, the French Acadians, the New England Planters, the development of the village as an education centre, and of the business and social organizations, to the end of 1980. The account has special interst for former andpresent residets of Wolfville, and the numerous illustrations and unusuall y extensive index also enhance the worth of the book as a comprehensive information source for genealogists and students of social growth." - from therear cover.
