Joe Martin Davidson

Joe (Joseph) Martin Davidson was born August 7, 1871. He was a native of
County, having spent his life here. At a early age he professed faith in
Christ and joined the Missionary Baptist Church, and throughout the
remainder of his life, he lived a consecrated Christian. He was married 
January 27, 1895 to Martha Ann White, as a result of this union eight
children were born, two of which the death angle has already called and
six survive to morn the loss of their loving father. He departed this
life November 13, 1918, and was laid to rest in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery.
His wife has lost a dear companion that can never be replaced. He was a
loving, tender and consecrated husband and at all times his thoughts
were for the welfare of his wife and children. His chair is vacant and
can never in this world of sorrow be filled. The loving voice that
administered to the wants of wife and children and consoled them  in all
hours of trouble is hushed forever. The loving wife that never left his
bedside during his last illness, has lost his protecting arm and must
face the battles of life alone. But her loss is heavens gain and she can
meet him beyond the shining portals of Heaven, where sorrow shall never

The children that loved papa so dearly, have lost their dearest friend,
except mother. All they can do is to live to be the men and women that
their father would have them live and prepare to meet father in another
world. The community has lost one of its best citizens. He was always
ready to help the needy and push any enterprise that was for the
betterment of the community
