James Davis, Sen., had a wife Sissilla. The Haverhill records show that "The wife died before him, upon May 28, 1673. The man himself, being at 90, died Jan. 29, '78." His son James then became James Davis, Sen., as he had a son James. There is abundant proof in well-preserved private papers, as well as public records, that, in 1652, a tavern called "Coffin's Ordinary" was kept at the ferry, a short distance above the present Rocks bridge. The "King's Highway," from Newbury, crossed the Merrimac at this point. The "Twelve-rod-way," formerly called "Goodman Ayer's cart-way," leading from "Coffin's Ordinary" to the county highway between Haverhill and Salisbury, was laid out in 1663. Two years later the road from "Country Bridge to Holt's Rocks" was opened, and, in 1667, the River road, once "Jamaca Path," was laid out on condition that those who used it should keep it in repair. James Davis, Sen., and his son James, Jr., possessed considerable land upon the "great river" in 1652, one portion of which was "bounded by a red oke at Coffin's Ordinary." [ref 91:9, 17]
