Following Up on Ferris

     According to the U.S. Federal Censuses,  Ferris George Davis and his wife, Sarah had a son named Arthur Ferris who was born in 1891.  The Ferris Davis who is buried in the New Paltz Rural Cemetery was also born in 1891 and I'm guessing is actually the son who went by his middle name.
     So...     the Ferris Davis who I am looking for is not buried in the New Paltz Rural Cemetery but his son is.  Ferris is also not buried in the Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery but his brothers Melville and Daniel are.
     I'm going to order a death certificate for Arthur Ferris Davis to see if his father is the Ferris Davis I seek.
