Birth: Oct. 24, 1806
Death: Jan. 18, 1876

-On Tuesday morning of this week, Mr. JAMES DAVIS, aged 69 years.
The deceased was born in Virginia and in early childhood removed to Ohio. After a few years he removed to Wayne County, this State, and from thence to this county in 1837, one year after its organization, and may very properly be called one of the old settlers, for at that time there were but few white people here. He was the father of a family of thirteen children, only his son JOHN W. and his two daughters remaining here, the others have preceded him across death's stream or found homes in other sections of the country. He was a hale and hearty man up to within a few days of his death. On Thursday of last week he walked from his home, a mile distant, to be present at the fire, but his exertion in coming and labor in helping subdue the flames produced congestion of the brain, which terminated fatally. He was a well known and highly respected citizen and his death casts a gloom over the entire community.
