Mrs. Mattie Davis

Died, at the home of her son-in-law, Mr. A.M. Stewart, at this place, Oct. 30th, 1899, Mrs. Mattie Davis, age 75 years 5 months and 2 days.  Mrs. Davis moved to this place with Mr. Stewart and family in May of this year and has since resided here.  She has been sick much of the time and through all of her sickness she has borne her suffering patiently, and trusted implicity in her Savior.  For sixty years she has been a faithful member in the Methodist Church.

Mrs. Davis was born in Marshal County, Tenn., but in early life she moved to West Tennessee, where most of her life was spent.  She married when young, but her husband lived only a few years. She has since lived a widow. She leaves one daughter, Mrs. Susan Stewart, and a number of grandchildren to mourn their loss.  Her remains were laid to rest in the McMurtrey grave yard Tuesday evening.  Rev. S. P. Davis performed the burial rites.  Peace to her ashes.
