Davis, Mahlon (? - 31 JAN 1902)
Mahlon Davis, a young man who has been employed at Hollister Bros. Sawmill located about six miles south of the village (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.) for the past year, met with an accident on Thursday morning last, which resulted in his death the next morning. Mr. Davis was working on the rollway at the time, rolling up logs when in some manner one of the logs started unexpectedly, striking him, causing internal injuries. He was brought to the village and the same evening was taken to the hospital at Chippewa Falls, accompanied by Dr. McKittrick, where he lingered until 7:30 the next morning, when he passed away. His parents who reside at Granton, this county, were notified and were with him in his last hours. The remains were taken to his home at Granton on Friday for burial. The young man was highly respected by his fellow workmen and acquaintances here and the sorrowing family has the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
