    [The current issue of the Montgomery County Republican contains the following announcement of the death of Mrs. Isaac M. Davis, which was briefly chronicled in these columns at the time: The death of Mrs. I. M. Davis, of Fonda, which occurred Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock, after an illness extending over many weeks, while not entirely unexpected, was unlooked for as soon by the friends outside of the family circle. Her death was due to a cancerous growth in the stomach. Mrs. Davis was conscious of all about her until the last and bore her sufferings with Christian fortitude. Her age was 72 years. Mrs. Davis was born north of the village of Fonda and was the daughter of Adam Fonda. Early in life she was married to Mr. Davis, and her life was spent in the village of Fonda with but few intermissions, surrounded by her interesting family, and friends, to whom she was devoted. It was her principal aim in life to do for her family, and to be surrounded by them, and she was fully rewarded for her faithful care by their deep affection and highest regard and esteem. Her counsel to them was golden. Mrs. Davis was an excellent Christian woman, and was prominent in all good works and in social circles as well. She possessed marked force of character and firm principles, and enjoyed a large circle of friends. Mrs. Davis will be much missed in the village in which she resided, for she was a woman of energy and executive force. The funeral took place from the family home on Broadway, Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and was attended by a large concourse of friends several being unable to gain admittance to the house. The Rev. Dr. DeBaun, pastor of the Reformed church, which Mrs. Davis joined early in life, officiated. His remarks were appropriate and comforting to the friends. The Rev. Washington Frothingham, an old friend of the family, assisted, making brief but most excellent remarks and the closing prayer. The floral tributes were very handsome and there was a large number of them. The Industrial School, of Fonda, sent choice roses. The interment took place at Evergreen cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Davis celebrated quietly last year their golden wedding. Mrs. Davis was a prominent member and one of the vice-presidents of the Starin Benevolent and Industrial Association, and a prominent worker in the Industrial School. She is survived by her husband, five daughters, Mrs. George F. Mills, Mrs. J. C. Boyd, Mrs. Everett Kennedy, Mrs. Emmet Noxon, Miss Marion Davis, and one son. E. Corning Davis. Two children, one daughter and one young son, died some years ago. The bearers at the funeral were members of the family, J. C. Boyd, Emmet Noxon, Everett Kennedy, E. Corning Davis and Nathan Fonda, a nephew of the deceased. Johnstown NY Daily Republican, Thursday, November 10, 1898]
