Birth: Apr. 7, 1873
North Carolina, USA
Death: Sep. 13, 1911
North Carolina, USA

The sudden illness of Mr. Davis Armfield, which was told in The Journal last week, terminated in his death at 10:30, Thursday, Sept. 13. From the time of the beginning of his serious illness Saturday morning, following the operation that night, his life hung in the balance, his people hoping from hour to hour that his robust constitution might withstand the terrible strain. As told last week, the operation for appendicitis was itself satisfactory. However, his heart was unable to stand the strain, and he died in spite of all that could be done.

When he died there passed away one possessed of all the qualities of real manhood -- generous, tender, strong and true. No young man among us possessed to a greater degree the respect and confidence of all who knew him. He was clean and true, inside and out, and the expressions of esteem among the people have been sincere and universal. If one word of derogation has ever been spoken of him by anyone, this writer never heard of it. He never made pretense to be aught than what he was, and anywhere and everywhere, and always, was the same even tempered, unassuming, straightforward man whom we all admire. He never put himself or his opinions forward, nor did he, as becomes a true man, fail to let it be known where he stood or what he though if occasion demanded. In his business dealings he had the utmost confidence of those who dealt with him.

He served as town alderman, as road commissioner, and as chief of the fire department. He was honored and trusted in all these relations as in his private affairs.

As is well known, Mr. Armfield was the son of Mr. E. A. Armfield. He is survived by his aged parents and by his several brothers and sisters, his death having been the first in the family, except an infant many years ago. The brothers are Messrs. Frank, Rufus, Horace and Emsley Armfield; the sisters Mesdames W. C. Heath, W. S. Lee, J. W. Laney, and S. H. Hudson. Mr. Armfield was married in 1907 to Miss Annie Ragan of High Point, who with a little daughter, two years old, survives.

The funeral was held at the House on Thursday afternoon, conducted by Dr. J. H. Weaver, of whose church the deceased was a member. A great many friends from different sections of the county were present. Many beautiful floral offerings were laid upon the new made grave.
