Davis, Joseph B. (6 FEB 1838 - 31 AUG 1921)

Joseph Bushrod Davis, one of Clark County, Wisconsin’s oldest settlers, died at his home in Loyal, Clark County, Wis. Wednesday, aged 83 years, 6 months and 23 days. He was born in St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., Feb. 6, 1838, and grew to manhood there. He came to Clark County in 1861. In 1869 he returned to New York State and was married there to Miss Emily Huntley. They returned here and settled on land in the town of York. Mr. Davis followed farming and carpenter work until about 20 years ago, when he retired and went to the village of Loyal to live. He was an industrious honest man and did a great deal of hard work in his lifetime. In the latter years of his life he was cut off from social life with his friends by the loss of his hearing, but he remained cheerful in his affliction. He is survived by his wife, three daughters: Mrs. Philip Kissinger of Spokeville, Mrs. Albert Castner of the town of Loyal, and Mrs. Alfred Castner of Loyal village, and one son, Earl Davis, at home. The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon at Windfall Church near Granton, Rev. Wilson Mallory officiating.
