James Davis

Rutland Daily Herald, April 23, 1887:

Mr. and Mrs. James Davis of Mendon, who have been ill about ten days with pneumonia, died early yesterday morning. Mrs. Davis was taken sick a few days after her husband and they both died yesterday within an hour of each other. A week ago yesterday Mr. Davis went down to a neighbor's house with a team and got a load of hay for his horse but was obliged to go to bed the next day. All the care they received while ill was from the neighbors who took turns in caring for them and watching nights. Four children are left in rather destitute circumstances, the youngest being about five years old and the eldest 14 years. Mrs. Davis was a sister of Mrs. D. G. Burt of Castleton, and of Mrs. L. W. Kimball of Rutland. One brother, W. B. Long, is now a resident of Kansas City, Mo. Mrs. Burt, who has also been quite ill for several days, was not able to visit her sister during her illness, but her place was well supplied by her sister, and neighbors of Mendon, and relatives of Mr. Davis. The circumstances of the case are particularly sad, the fatherless little ones being thus left alone in the world when they most need a mother's care. Mrs. Davis was a sincere, devoted mother and Christian woman and their loss is great.

The double funeral will take place Sunday at Mendon.
