There passed away at the Soldiers' hospital in Sawtel, California, at 8:50 a.m., September 30th, a former wellknown resident of Island Pond, M.H. Davis. The funeral was held October 2d, under the I.O.O.F. and G.A.R. rituals, and cremation followed. The ashes will be brought to his old home for burial, but the return has been delayed owing to the settlement of the estate, and the date of departure is uncertain.
Deceased was born in Island Pond on March 24, 1846, and the greater portion of his life was passed here. He owned considerable property, at one time owning and operating a gristmill, and was in the mercantile business here for over thirty years. He went to California to make his home seven years ago. He was a veteran of the Civil war, enlisting in a Maine regiment, and saw much service. He was a member of Capt. Buck Post G.A.R. of this place and the I.O.O.F. He was a stirring business man and accumulated a handsome property. For more than a quarter of a century he was active in the business life of Island Pond.
He is survived by three sons, Harry Davis of Newport, Willie Davis of Brooklyn, N.Y., Charles T. Davis of this place and one daughter, Mrs. Della Long of California, who was with her father during his illness and gave him a loving daughter's care.
