a. 81
Headstone


“Died—May 28, 1883, DAVID D. DAVIS [sic], of the Cottage, Eckhart, in the 82d year of his age. Mr. Davis was born in London, England. In the year 1857, he and his family started out of Nantyglos, S.W., for the great American continent, and in June of the same year arrived at Mount Savage where he resided until the works stopped. Afterwards he removed to Frostburg and remained here until after the death of his beloved wife. He then made his home with his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph B. Thomas. Mr. Davis was highly respected by all who knew him; he was a man of upright character.
He joined the church of God when young and made a good profession before many witnesses. For over twelve months he was confined to the house and it was evident to those who visited him that the hand of death was upon him.
During his protracted illness he suffered all with patience, only now and then asking, ‘When will my Heavenly Father send for me?’ Last Monday at noon he slept in Jesus. His children and grandchildren will miss him; so will his friends, and especially the Congregational Church on the Bowery; yet let us say—‘Lord, thy will be done!’ On Wednesday a very large number of friends and relatives gathered to pay their last tribute to the one whom they loved so dearly. Rev’s D.M. George and D.D. Jenkins took part in the services.
May he rest in peace until the Arch Angel shall call the first born to the resurrection of life! A Friend.” [FMJ 6-2-1883, p. 2]
