Obituary

Rev. A. A. Davis
Rev. Alonzo S. Davis died last evening at his home on Colchester avenue of pneumonia.

Rev. Mr. Davis leaves three sons, Rev. Edward A. Davis of South Parish, Me., Elmer E. Davis of this city and Lewis W. Davis of Jaffrey, N. H.

Rev. Mr. Davis was born in Tyngsboro, Mass., 82 years ago, of Puritan stock. He received an academical education in that and nearby towns and was for several years superintendent of schools in different Massachusetts towns. While engaged in this capacity he married Jane White, who preceded him to the grave by a few years. The couple lived in Westford for several years during which time Mr. Davis was active in State militia affairs and was especially prominent in forming Company F, a well known military organization at that time.

Following the outbreak of the war, Mr. Davis enlisted in the 6th Massachusetts infantry and with this regiment participated in several engagements. Upon returning home, he was in business in Chelmsford for a few years, after which he moved to Vermont to reside for a few years before moving to Kansas.

While living in Kansas he was ordained a Baptist minister and preached in that State for three years, when he returned to Vermont because of ill health. Since that time, he had been engaged as a preacher at different points in this State and in Massachusetts until about six years ago, when, because of failing eyesight, he was obliged to give up his profession. Among the stations occupied by him in this State were Westford and Colchester. Rev. Mr. Davis was greatly interested in weather prognostications and frequently contributed to the press forecasts which were widely read.
