Tribute  of Respect
Friday, Jan 17, 1919, at 1:30 a m, the angel of death visited the home of Mrs NANCY ELIZABETH RAY DAVIS and claimed for its victim her beloved husband, THOMAS ALEXANDER DAVIS. Although he had been in declining health for nearly three years, his illness was critical only about two weeks. All was done for him that could be done. He was born in Alabama, Jan 25, 1840, making his stay on earth 78 years, 11 months, & 22days. He leaves a wife, one son and two daughters, also two step-daughters, and thirteen grandchildren, to mourn their loss, but we feel that our loss is his eternal gain.
   We do not mourn as those who have no hope, for we feel assured that our loved one is with his dear children which have gone before and is patiently waiting to meet the ones left behind. His aged wife is lonely in her home where she spent more than fifty years with him. Mr Davis was a confederate soldier. He was always glad to see his many friends who called often at his home to enjoy a conversation with him.
  His remains were taken to Cool Springs Saturday where the funeral services were held & quietly laid to rest in the cemetery to await the resurrection morn. He was a member of that  church.
