THE WESTERN STAR, 20 October 1888
Obituary of MR. DAVIS
A Sad Accident - Rev. J. A. Davis, pastor of the M. E. church of this city, received a telegram from Hutchinson last Saturday telling him that his father had been badly hurt. He took the train Saturday night and soon afterwards a second message arrived announcing that his father was dead.

Mr. Davis lived 10 miles from Hutchinson and was returning home from town in a common road wagon, which ran into a rut and threw the old gentleman over the dash board and ran over him crushing him horribly; he only lived a few hours after the accident. The sympathy of Harper's people is with Rev. Davis and wife on this hour of sad bereavement

Harper Sentinel.

The people of Coldwater have not forgotten Rev. Davis, who was pastor of the M. E. church in this city a couple of years ago, and will heartily sympathize with him in the loss of his father.
