Sarah C. Davis
Mrs. Sarah C. Davis, the daughter of David and Lucy Baughman, was born at Oak Point, Clark County, Illinois, March 27, 1848, and embarked to the shores of the life beyond the grave on the morning of February 20, 1920. The duration of her earthly career being 71 years, 10 months, and 23 days.
On the 22nd of August 1867, she was married to James Davis. Unto them were born eleven children, four sons and seven daughters. Five, only of her children survive her. They are as follows: Rolla F. Davis, Mrs. Mary O. Shadley, wife of B. F. Shadley, J. Arthur Davis, Mrs. Lucy Detro, wife of Ferb Detro, and Mrs. Ella Roberts, wife of Amos Roberts.
When she was converted, she became a member of the Southern Methodist church on March 1, 1885; and 17 years ago this spring she became a member of the church of the United Brethren in Christ at Olive chapel, six miles south of Casey, where she retained her church membership until the time of her death.
She was stricken with paralysis just two years to the day prior to the day of her demise. While she made some improvement after paraletic stroke, she never fully recovered; but the immediate cause of her death was heart trouble.
For some time previous to her death, she has had premonitions of her going away, and lived in a way, some of her earlier years over again. She showed signs of distress by wondering what her little children would do without her.
She has gone to the House of Many Mansion, where there is no more pain, sorrow, nor distress, but where she may enjoy the blessings of eternity with her Redeemer.
Among many friends left behind her are an only brother, Jesse Baughman, her five children and a number of grandchildren to mourn.
Funeral services were conducted at the Olive chapel, U. B. church, on the afternoon of Feb. 21, 1920, by Rev. Myers and Sitzinger. Interment in the Baughman cemetery.
