“Robert V. Davis”

Robert V. Davis, son of Josiah and Sarah Davis, was born at Shelbyville, Illinois, July 31, 1864, and died in his home at Union, Oregon, February 23rd, 1924, age 59 years, 6 months and 22 days. The family crossed the plains when Robert was a lad of 13 years and settled in High Valley, where for 44 years he made his home.

October 11th, 1885, he was united in marriage to Miss Viola V. Wilkinson. To them was born 9 children. Seven of whom are now living, namely: Amos Davis, Mrs. Charlotte Wheeler, Mrs. Mary Allen, Mrs. Lulu Burford; Cora, William and Lewis Davis, all of Union, and four grandchildren.

The wife, and mother passed away May 14th, 1923. Two children also preceded their parents to that land of endless day. One brother, Josiah Davis, of Greybill, Wyoming and one sister, Mrs. Joan Logsdon, of La Grande, are also survivors. Mr. Davis was a great sufferer for a number of years. Three years ago Bright’s Disease took hold of him. Two weeks ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis which terminated in his death.

Two years ago he left the farm in High Valley, and came to Union which has ever since been his home. Another pioneer has crossed over the great divide.

The funeral was held at the Methodist Church Monday February 25 at 1:30 p.m., services conducted by Rev. C. A. Quinn. Many old-time friends and neighbors paid their last sad respects to this highly respected and good man. He was laid to rest in the Union cemetery by the side of his wife who preceded him to the great beyond in May, 1923.
