Princeton Clarion dated 8/1/1895:


"DIED - On Monday, July 29, at 7:30 p.m., at his residence on East State street, Moses R. Davis, in the 37th year of his age.


The announcement of the death of Moses Davis was quite a surprise and a shock to our people, as only a few persons knew that he was dangerously sick. He was taken sick about ten days previous with a severe attack of flux which did not yield readily to medical treatment. Later there was a development of heart trouble and from this serious complication of diseases death resulted.


The deceased was a native of Kentucky but has been a resident of this city the "greater part of his life. He learned the trade of marble cutter and has followed that avocation continuously, except two years he served as city marshal. He was considered one of the best workmen in his line in this vicinity and always found ready employment as good wages. For several years he has been in the employ of Reavis & Beloat as foreman and draughtsman.


He took great interest in military exercises and has been a member of the militia company here since its organization. At the time of his death he was second lieutenant of the company and was exceedingly popular with the boys of the company, as he was with all his associates. He was a quiet, industrious man and a good citizen in every respect. His death is a loss to the community.


His wife, who survives him, was Miss Anna Lockhart, daughter of Mrs. John Dunlap of this city. He also leaves one son, about 15 years of age. These will feel the loss most deeply and to them the sincere sympathy of the community will go out in this hour when the dark shadow of

bereavement is upon them.


The funeral yesterday afternoon was held in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, of which the deceased was a consistent member. The A.O.U.W., of which he was a charter member, and Co. K, of which he was an officer, attended in a body; as did also a large concourse of friends, who

tlius testified their sympathy for the relatives and high regard for the deceased."
