A Tribute To Mrs. D. S. Davis.
Funeral and burial services for Mrs. Wingfield Zeigler Davis, wife of D. S. Davis, Treasurer of Henry County, were held Monday afternoon, the funeral service taking place at the late home on Cleveland Avenue, and interment being made in the tomb at Oakwood Cemetery here.
Mrs. Davis passed away unexpectedly late Saturday evening, the result of an acute attack of indigestion.
Several members of the family were at her bedside when the end came, shortly after being seized with the attack.
Surviving besides her husband and her mother, Mrs. Chesley M. Zeigler of Glade Hill, are eight children who are Mesdames G. E. Morris, this city, J. William Jones of Walnut Cover, N.C., Misses Helen, Carrie, Margaret and Messrs. Benjamin C., D. S. Jr., and James Davis, all of this city. Also four brothers, Frank, Morgan, Woody and Mike Zeigler and two sisters, Mrs. James Boothe and Mrs. Annie Jeter of Glade Hill.
Two grandchildren also survive.
Mrs. Davis was born in the Glade Hill neighborhood of Franklin County on February 20th, 1881, the daughter of Chesley M. and Charlotte Morgan Ziegler.
Spending her childhood and days of young womanhood here, she later, following her marriage to Mr. Davis, moved to Martinsville, where she resided until her death.
