Ralph Davis had been a resident of Lyndon many years, the past ten or twelve had been spent on the pleasant farm in Egypt, where he died July 8. He had been ill for many weeks with an incurable disease of the heart. He bore his long sufferings with exemplary patience ever grateful for all that was done for his comfort. He was kind in his family and a good neighbor and citizen. He leaves four children: Mrs. Charles Lee, Mrs. Nina Ball, Frank H. and Nellie, the two latter of whom resided at home. The family have the sympathy of all.
