Robert W. Davis

Robert W. Davis, aged 59 years, died Saturday morning at the soldiers' home in Chelsea, to which he went last Thursday. His death was caused by consumption, with which he had suffered for a long time. It was known that he would have good care at the soldiers' home and it was felt that he would be better off there than here. He was glad to go to the home, and left in good spirits, but his condition quickly changed for the worse after his arrival.

Mr. Davis was a veteran of the civil war, in which he served in the 31st Massachusetts infantry. He was a member of C. D. Sanford post, G. A. R., and was well known in the city. His wife died some years ago. He leaves five brothers, Charles and James of this city, Jefferson and Edward on Monroe, and Amos of Charlemont. He also leaves a sister living in Clarksburg.

The body will reach the city this evening and will be taken in charge by Undertakers L. A. Simmons & Co. The funeral will be held at Grand Army hall tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the service being conducted by Chaplain W. L. Crosier, and the body will be placed in the vault.
