STEPHEN DAVIS SUCCUMBS. Stephen Davis, 88, a well-known resident of Warrick County, for more than fifty years, died Friday night at the home of a son, Horace Davis, at Tennyson. Death was due to injuries received when he was struck by a motor truck at the corner of Third and Main streets in this city Thursday afternoon. The truck was driven by Theo. Fisher of St. Meinrad. He leaves one daughter, Mrs. Ethel Christian (Christen) of St. Louis and four sons, Charles E. and Oliver I. of Louisville, Horace of Tennyson and Earl of Beaumont, Texas. His wife, a daughter, Mrs. Nettie Reed, and a son, Chandler, preceded him in death. Mr. Davis was born in Spencer county but spent the greater part of his life in this county. He lived in Boonville for a number of years and conducted a grocery store. Funeral services were held at 1:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the Horace Davis home followed by burial in Maple Grove cemetery, Boonville. The body was laid to rest in a casket made by his own hands several years ago shortly after the death of his wife. It was of solid mahogany and was a beautiful work of art, being complete with the exception of the linings and handles that were added after his death.
