Notes for PETER CAMPBELL DAVIS:
[From Robert Davis}
December Court 1812 -- John Jones was appointed guardian to Mordecai and Peter Campbell Davis, sons of John Davis, blacksmith.

September 20, 1825 -- Molly freeman named in her will, as contingent legatees, Mordicai Davis, Peter Davis, and Elizabeth Powell, wife of Jehew Powell.

Notes for GEORGE B. DAVIS:
Married by Reverand Oliver.

Tombstone inscription says: For His people Jesus died, And for them He was crucif(y)ed. Conquered death and rose to heaven, Life eternal in Him given.

1880 US Census (Pg. 546B) lists family as living in Albion Twp., Reno County, Kansas.

1895 Kansas State Census of Ninnescah Township, Reno County, Kansas shows George B., Margaret, William, Columbia, Carrie, Walter, H, George M., M.B., and C.M. (last 3-4 are grandchildren). Farm info included says there were 320 acres. 200 acres were cultivated. 80 acres were fenced (by hedge). Cash value of the farm was $4,000. Implements and machinery were worth $100. There were 120 acres planted in corn, 20 acres in oats, 150 bushels of corn on hand as of 3-1-1895. 100 acres of prarie and 4 of meadow. In 1894 the farm cut 15 tons of prarie, sold $30 worth of poultry and eggs, and made 200 pounds of butter. He had 12 horses, 7 milk cows, 28 other cattle, 11 swine, and 1 dog. One cow had died of disease.

Reference Lacona Ledger (1873 or 75?)
FIRE- Geo. B. Davis of Liberty Township met with quite a loss on the evening of the 15th last. His stable, which was located a few rods east of the house, caught fire from the chimney, and burned, as did about 800 bushels of corn and 25 tons of hay. The loss is estimated at $500.00. the stable and shed burned were covered with straw or hay. This is the second fire of the kind that we have mentioned within a week and should be a warning against building barns and stables so near the residences as many of our farmers do. (Taking note?) of the high winds that we have in this country sparks or small fire brands are carried to quite a distance and barns and_____ yards should be located accordingly.

Notes for HENRIETTA DAVIS:
Obituary shows she died in her home. when she was age 3 the family decided to move west and came as far as Illinois where they lived for 7 years. In 1855 the family came by covered wagon to a farm in Liberty Township, Lucas County, Iowa.

MRS HENRIETTA MUMFORD
Henrietta Davis was born in Worcester, Maryland, March 15, 1845, and died at her home in Chariton, Iowa,
May 10' 1941. At the time of her death she had reached the ripe old age of ninety-six years, one month and
twenty-five days.
When she was three years of age the family decided to move west and came as far as JllinQ!º where they
continued to live for seven years. In 1855 the family came by covered wagon to Iowa where they located
on a farm in Liberty township in Lucas county .Here she grew to womanhood. A hardy pioneer in one of the
rural pioneer homes.
On Feb 8, 1866, she united in marriage with William Mumford, also of Lucas county. The young husband
has just been mustered out of the service of his county .He served for three years in the 34th Iowa Infantry
during the Civil war.
To Mr and Mrs Mumford, three daughters were born. These daughters all live in Chariton, close to the
mother, and their presence was a continued source of benediction to her. One of the girls, Mrs Daugherty,
has always lived in the home with her.
After their marriage the young couple located on a farm in Liberty township where they lived until October
1913, when they retired from the farm and moved to Chariton where she has continued to live at the home
on South Thirteenth street. Mr Mumford passed on to that better world on January ~, 1915.
Many years ago she gave her heart to the Lord and she and her husband became members of Union Chapel
Methodist Church. This little church was near the present town of Newbern. She was a member of the
Daughters of Union Veterans.
She leaves to mourn their loss her three daughters, Mrs Maude Seaton, Mrs Lura Lykins and Mrs Willa
B. Daugherty, all of Chariton; also one granddaughter, Mrs Maude Loney, of near Oakley; two great ~
grandchildren, Roy Loney and Blanche Wrigley; and one great great-grandchild, Bobbie Wrigley.
On the occasion of her 94th birthday the local papers had this to say about her:
"Mrs Mumford is in fair health. She spends much of her time in a rocking chair beside a
large window, watching passers-by and children at play in the school yard across the street,
or reading."
One year later, on her 95th birthday:
"her eyesight has now failed so that she is unable to read and she has given up most of the
household tasks. She still dries dishes, however. Much of her time is spent visiting
neighbors and friends who come in to see her."
Not many people are permitted to live in the world as long as she was. But it seems remarkable that she
not only lived so long but remained so alert to the end of a grand life, which will mean much to her loved
ones and many friends.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev Geo, A. Lawton, of the Methodist church, were held Monday afternoon
at two o'clock at the Beardsley funeral home, and burial was in the Newbern cemetery .

Peter B. Davis settled in Dallas, Marion County, Iowa in 1860 at the age of 19. He was a very sucessful farmer. In about 1896 he retired from farming and moved to Knoxville. His daughters Fannie and Minnie also lived in Knoxville and Minnie was his housekeeper and caregiver the latter part of his life. He had suffered a stroke about 17 years prior to his death and then a second one about 8 weeks prior to his death. Info from bio sketch, family page of others, and obituary from Lucas County Journal dated Nov. 6, 1924. Obituary has incorrect date of birth as 21 Jan 1841.


Lacona Ledger, 14 November 1924. From the Melcher Union (Marion County, Ohio).

Peter B. Davis, one of the best known and well liked citizens of the Southern half of the county , died at his
home in Knoxville on Thursday, October 30, 1924, at the age of 83 years, nine months and five days. Death
resulted from a second stroke of paralysis from the effects of which he had suffered for a period of about
eight weeks. The first stroke, from which he had apparently fully recovered, occurred about 17 years ago.
Peter B. Davis, son of John and Amelia Davis, was born in Worchester County , Maryland, January 21, 1841.
He was the oldest of a family of nine children. In the year 1860, at the age of 19, he came to this county and
settled in Dallas township, where the deceased became one of the most prominent of the early progressive
farmers of the community. He was successful in all his business affairs, especially in that of stock raising
and stock buying, becoming widely known in this and adjoining counties.
In the year 1865, on August 10th, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Ann Chrismore. To this union six
children were born, five of whom are still living. Mrs Fannie James and Mrs Minnie Wagner of
Knoxville; Frank E. Davis of Chariton, and Gusta, wife of M. H. Bucklew and Ella, wife of J. F. Bucklew,
both of Melcher. The deceased member of the family was John W. Davis. The wife and mother passed
away December 28, 1921. Besides the children he also leaves seven grandchildren and three great-
grandchildren and three sisters. The sisters are Mrs Emma Arnold and Mrs Mary Poush of Chariton,
and Mrs Levina Newman of Lake Andes, South Dakota.
After his career in successful business on the farm, Mr Davis retired from more strenuous duties, about thirty
years ago and located in Knoxville, here he soon added to his wide circle of acquaintances and was
generally beloved and highly respected byall. He was a man of splendid natural abilities and great strength
of character; one always consistent in the carrying out of what he believed to be right. During his last
f' sic.k~ess h~ talked much of his compa.nion who had gone before and expr~ssed his readiness and willingness
to Join her In the other world where sickness and death, sorrowand partings are unknown.
He was not a member of any church but had lived the consistent Christian life which counts high in the
estimation of his fellow men. Since the death of his wife three years ago he had continued to reside at the
old home with his daughter, Mrs Minnie Wagner, as housekeeper and constant companion.
The funeral services were conducted at the home at 2:30, Friday afternoon, October 31, 1924, by Rev W.
A. Longnecker of the Methodist Church. The funeral which was under the auspices of the Oriental Lodge
No.61, A.F. & A.M., was in the Graceland Cemetery, besides the remains of the wife who had been his

Notes for DAVID ARNOLD:
1880 US Census of Liberty Twp. Lucas County, Iowa lists David (as a huckster), Sarah E. and 2 children Mary E. and Alva M. Why are these children not listed with the eight in the obituary? Names listed wrong? Nicknames? Differnt David and Mary Arnold?

With deep regret we note the death of one of Lucas county's pioneer citizens, Mr David Arnold, who passed
away December 11th, 1930, at his home in southeast Chariton, after an extended illness of six weeks.
During that time every thing that loving hands could do was done to prolong his life, but owing to advanced
age all that was done was unavailing and death came as a blessing release at the age of 79 years, 8 months
and 23 days.
He was a son of Thomas and Julia Arnold, well known residents of Lucas county , and was born on March
19, 1851. His early life was spent in Lucas county and on March 14, 1871, he was united in marriage to
Sarah Emma Davis. To this union were born eight children, of whom six survive: Mrs Stella Ginn, of
Mapleview, New York; Bert, ofTen Sleep, Wyoming; Hal, of nearWoodburn; Chalmerand Guy and
Mrs Grace Wilkinson, of Chariton; Two, Augusta and Milly, died in infancy.
About twenty-five years ago, he united with the Christian Union church at Bethel Chapel. After leaving Lucas
county the family home was established in Clarke county , where they lived for about twenty-five years. On
July 29th, 1919, he moved to the home in Chariton and there resided until death. ,~
Besides the children, he leaves thirty-seven grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren and a host of
other relatives and friends to mourn their loss.
He was the last of a family of eleven children. He was a devoted husband, a loving father, a friendly
neighbor, a faithful friend, and greatly beloved by all who knew him.
The following verse from the poem "Will It Be You Or I" was often quoted by him to his wife:
"I would not know which of us,
darling, will be first to go;
I only wish the space may not
be long
Between the parting and the
greeting song;
But when, or where, or how
we're called to go."
Funeral services were held in the Chariton U.B. church at 1 :30 p.m., Sunday, conducted by the pastor, the
Rev L. A. Stangle, after which interment took place in the Newbern cemetery .

Murray has lived in Lacona most of his entire life, with the exception of a few years residence in California.
For several years Mr Murray was one of Lacona's leading horse buyers and was well known here and in the
surrounding community .He was a good neighbor and a kind friend, and will be sadly missed by everyone.
He has two sons and two daughters in California, none of whom were present at the last sad rites. The
community extends their sympathy to the family in this their hours of deepest sorrow.

entire life in and near Lacona and was well respected by all who knew him. He was a devoted husband and
father, and held to the highest principles of right and wrong. His health gradually failed during the last few
months, but his serious illness was only of short duration. His example of patience throughout his suffering
and thoughtfulness to his family is one that exalts life and ennobles character. He will be greatly missed not
only by his family but also by his many friends. Funeral services were held at the home Wednesday, July
6 at 2 p.m. conducted by Rev. E. G. Channell, pastor of the M.E. Church, and internment was made in the

Barn at the C. T. Murray Farm Destroyed by Fire
About noon Sunday, the barn on the C. T. Murray farm, south of Lacona, was discovered to be on fire, but
when it was seen, it was too far gone to save any of the contents. A granary near the barn was also burned
down. Mr Murray lost two horses which were in the barn, one of them being his saddle horse. All of his
harness, some farm machinery and practically all of the tools and hay in the barn. He had just put a large
amount of shelled corn in the granary. The origin of the fire is unknown. He had $1000 insurance on the
barn, $100 on the granary and some insurance on the grain and hay which will not near cover his loss. This
is a severe blow to Mr Murray, he having been ill for some time and not able yet to do much work. We all
sympathize with Mr Murray in his misfortune.

Reference: Lacona LedQer, Friday, August 1, 1924.
Columbus Taylor Murray was born at Newbern, Iowa, on December 29, 1855, and departed this life at his
home near Lacona on July 23, 1924 at the age of 68 years, 6 months and 24 days. He was married to Anna
E. Wilson, April 1 , 1884. T o this union were born three children. He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife, one
son, Rufus N. Murray of Indianola; Mrs Fair Town of Lacona; and Inez at home. He also leaves five
grandchildren, one brother, and a host of friends. Funeral services were held at the home Friday
afternoon, conducted by J. F. Samson of Indianola, District Lecturer of the Masonic Lodge. The Masonic
burial service was exemplified at the grave. Interment was made in the Newbern cemetery.

Notes for ANNA ELIZA WILSON:
Reference: Lacona Ledger, September 28, 1928.
Anna Eliza Wilson, daughter of Nathaniel and Elizabeth Wilson, was born in Lacona, Iowa, November 20,
1861, and passed away September21, 1928, aged 66 years, 10 months and 1 day. On April 1, 1884, she

the farm about two and a half miles from Lacona, in to town, where Mrs Murray was a member of the
Presbyterian church. Her husband passed away July 23, 1924, but there are left to mourn the three children
and six grandchildren, also one brother, Frank Wilson of Medford, Oregon, and one sister, Mrs Hans
Helgevold, of Eagle Grove, Iowa. A wife, mother, sister, friend and neighbor has gone from our midst. Her
going will leave a vacant place in the home and there are many to mourn her loss, but we could not wish her
back to suffer. "She hath done what she could," and her influence will follow on. The services were held
at her late home Sunday, September 23rd, at 11 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Ida B. Thorn of the M.E. Church.
A male quartet consisting of E. B. Mosher, Darrell Parkins, Glen Holmes and Harold Miller rendered "That

I do have quite a bit of info on Clarissa's Descendants. I would rather send it to you in person than put info on living relatives on the web. Please e-mail me at: genesearchertoo@msn.com and I would be glad to exchange info (as long as you are a descendant of Clarissa's). Sorry, but I have no info on her ancestry.
