"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 72, No 2, p 93, Jan. 8, 1912.

At the General Hospital, Provo, Utah, on December 17, 1911, Mrs. Fannie Davis Lawton, in the thirty-sixth year of her age.

Fannie Susan was the oldest child of Harrison E. and Eliza Boyd Davis. She was born at Wells, Minn., on January 21, 1876. When Fannie was a little girl the family removed to North Loup, Neb.

When thirteen years of age she accepted Christ as her Savior and on October 5, 1889, was baptized by Rev. George J. Crandall. In 1893 she was married to Rufus Lawton. In the summer of 1909 Brother and Sister Lawton with a number of others removed from North Loup to Fruitland, Utah. She leaves a family of four sons and five daughters, the youngest a boy five weeks old.

The funeral was held at the Seventh-day Baptist church in North Loup, of which church Mrs. Lawton was a member. The pastor's text was Gal. iii, 4: 'Have ye suffered so many things in vain?'

Fannie Lawton was a most devoted mother. She abounded in patient, unselfish, loving service for her family which became the horizon of her life. To many readers of the 'Recorder' she would best be known as the sister of Rev. H. Eugene Davis.
