Biography

Anna Davis was born in England in 1862 and was only about two years old when her parents arrived in New York. She married Harry Schweitzer in 1881 and lived in Manhattan, New York, where, according to family accounts and verified by the 1910 census, she ran a boarding house. According to poultry trade magazines, Harry Schweitzer had major debt problems from about 1885 to 1905 and Anna took over the business to restore credit in those years.[1] Anna passed away in 1923.
