From the Galena Weekly Gazette, 20 Dec 1917, p.8, col 4. (Article lists death as Dec 13. Death certificate lists Dec 12.)

Mr. John Davis died at Watertown Dec. 13 and was brought to the home of his brother Alvin, south of Council Hill the next day by his brother Laban. Funeral services were held at the home at eleven o'clock Saturday morning, the sermon being preached by Rev. E. Palmer. Several hymns were sung by Mrs. Hattie Merrifield and her sister-in-law, Miss Minnie Merrifield presided at the piano. Mr. Davis was 39 years old last March. Interment was made in Scales Mound cemetery, by four nephews sons of Mr. and Mrs. Al Davis, Alvin, Percy, Laban, Alva, and Joseph and Alfred Temperly. The sorrowing ones return thanks to the neighbors for many acts of kindness.
