Biographical or historical data
In 1967, Virgil E. Davis lived at 1234 Franklin Street, Brookville, Indiana. When Mrs. Ferd Joseph, Jr., 1723 East State Street, Salem, Ohio, wrote to the Brookville Chamber of Commerce that year, her letter was given to Mr. Davis. He answered her inquiry about the Charles A. Bishop Furniture Company, which operated in Brookville from 1882 to 1896.
