C. J. Davis, a pioneer resident of Mehurin township, passed away at Ebeneser hospital at Madison at 9:20 Saturday evening, July 20, following a five weeks illness from chronic complications.

Charles Jason Davis was born on February 16th, 1844, at Walpool, New Hampshire. At the age of 16 years he enlisted for service in the Civil War but was rejected on account of lameness resulting from a recent broken limb, but largely from his father's influence. He remembered meeting President Lincoln at this time. He came to Iowa and Wisconsin later, where he was a woodsman for 16 years, and settled in Mehurin township in 1878, taking a homestead which comprised what is now the E. M. Hampton farm. On February 1st, 1881, he was united in marriage to Mary Jane Doran, who passed away in 1913. Their family consisted of two sons and one daughter, the oldest son, Harvey Jason, passing in 1921. The family made its home in Mehurin and Garfield townships until the fall of 1915, when they moved to Marietta.

Deceased is survived by one son, Leonard Guy, and one daughter, Clara May of this village.

Mr. Davis was 85 years, 5 months and 4 days old.
Funeral services were held at the Congregational church here Tuesday afternoon, Rev. L. E. Kennedy, formerly pastor here, officiating. Interment was made by the side of his wife and son in the Augusta cemetery.
