Obituary of Wilford W Davis

Cumby, Hopkins Co., TX

(Obit ? Wilford Davis died in Denver, Colorado, June 18, 1915, of tuberculosis. He had sought health in many places, the last few years spent at Adams Memorial Home in Denver. He contributed much to magazines and newspapers. The speech he wrote, which was read in Congress by a member of Kansas and entered on the Congressional record, was a marvel in subject and resulted in much good. His body was accompanied from Denver by his sisters, Misses Lottie and Ruby, and were met at Ft. Worth by his brothers, Henry and Sherwood. Four of his sisters were with him at his death, Misses Effie and Bessie, and Mrs. Austin of Vicksburg, Mississippi, and Mrs. Joe Lowe of Cumby. It was his desire to be laid to rest in his boy-hood home beside his mother. Burial was made in Cumby cemetery. (Cumby Rustler, June 25, 1915)
