(See previous post about Dons Great-grandfather)
According to Super A-B fan & historian Ashley Bowman, Dons great-grandfather, Henry C. (aka H.C.) Davis,was initiated in Camp Dawson No. 4. Ashley has accumulated rosters on a few of the Camps. It makes sense. Records show that H.C. worked and lived just two blocks from the Arctic Brotherhood Hall (now Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall).
Records from the archives of the Northwest Mounted Police, show that H. C. Davis (Seattle) entered the Yukon at the Chilkoot Pass on 4/1/1899.
The following info about H.C. Davis is from Polks Alaska-Yukon Gazetteer and Business Directory (compiled 1901 1912):

News was received on the mail arriving yesterday that Mrs. H.C. Davis, of this city, had died in Seattle on August 16th. the death was not unexpected, as Mrs. Davis left for the Outside last June, suffering from a cancer. Upon her arrival in the States she went directly to the Mayo Bros. hospital at Rochester, Minnesota, but the famous surgeons refused to operate, saying that the case was too far advanced. Mrs. Davis was well known both here and in Dawson, having come North more than fourteen years ago with her husband. She is survived by her husband and two sons, Edward and Roden, of this city, and by three sisters and two brothers in Seattle. She was 43 years of age and was born in Davenport, Iowa.
