My attempt to reply to request by George Ramsey failed. Here is information.
The Davis family members who are mentioned --or any reason are: Archimedes, Arta, Dave, Fannie, G.G., Henry, HIram W., Jeff, Lee, N.H., and Sam.
Here is the only reference to a George Davis:
Election results printed in The Marshall Republican, Sept. 7, 1894,p.4, c.2
For Surveyor George Davis949 J. R. Cox637
Watts, no Charotte, but following names appear: A. J., Abraham, Art, Asa, B. W., Benjamin Arthur, Boyd, Buddie, C.A., Eddie, Eliza, Florence, Henry L., James, John, M. L., Rev. J. H., S. H., Thomas A.,
I can copy if you are related to any of them. Sorry, I didn't find the obituary you wanted, but the book only covers items extracted by Mr. Johnston for the period 1866-1901.
