Died at Fort Macon on August 29, 1861, of "typhoid fever." Private Davis's body was returned to Guilford county and he is buried in the family cemetery off of Yanceyville Street in Greensboro. His original headstone was damaged over the years and a replacement was installed in 1997. The remnant of the original headstone was preserved and can be seen beneath the flowers in the photo.
