Death of an Old Citizen

Mr. A.O.H. Davis, one of Polk's oldest and best known citizens, passed away on Wednesday evening of last week, his death occuring on his seventy-first birthday. His home was at Taylorsville, but he had been in failing health for several months, and came here a short time ago to be with his son, Mr. J.R. Davis. The remains were taken Thursday morning to Taylorsville, where the funeral services were conducted by Rev. B.M. Turner.

Mr. Davis was born May 11th, 1839, and was united in marriage Dec. 8th, 1859, with Miss Mary J. Reavis, who survives him. There are four living children, Messrs. W.J. and A.R. Davis of Taylorsville, Mrs. F.L. Clark of Rockmart, and Mr. J.R. Davis of this place.

The deceased was a member of trhe famous Phillips legion, and his remains were escorted to the Seaboard depot Thursday morning by a large delegation of his comrades of the gray. He was a member of the Floyd Creek Baptist church.

Mr. Davis was an upright and thrifty citizen, and his death in the fullness of years is mourned by a large circle of relatives and friends.

Note: A.O.H. Davis' full name was Andrew Overton Hitchcock Davis.
