On Tuesday, Sept. 13, the ashes of Sanford J. Mills, nephew of the late Amory Davidson, were placed beside the grave of his mother, Susan Davidson Mills. His home was in Seattle, Wash. Death occurred on the ninth of June. His will provided for immediate cremation, and his ashes by request were sent here to his niece, Mrs. Adelaide C. Dustin, and here awaited the coming of other members of the family to be present at the burial. His brother-in-law, the Rev. Dr. Chamberlin of New York city officiated. In the same lot lies the dust of his great-great grandfather, Daniel Davidson, Sr., and of his great-grandfather, Capt. Daniel Davidson, Jr., both soldiers in the Revolution. He himself was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic.
