      "The North Loup Loyalist", North Loup, Nebraska, Friday, March 2, 1906, p 4.
      At the Norfolk Hospital, Feb. 25, 1906, comforted by the presence of his grandson, Otto R. Hill, Adonirum Judson Davis in the 78th year of his age. His funeral and burial took place at North Loup, his permanent home for the last 33 years, on Tuesday Feb. 27. The funeral services were held at the S. D. B. church of which he was a member, Rev. Fox of the M. E. church officiating. Only two children survive him, Dr. W. L., of Lincoln and Mrs. Eva Hill of this place, both of whom with their families were present at the funeral.
      Mr. Davis was born in West Virginia in which state he spent his boyhood days. He lived for a time in Ohio and in Iowa coming to this place from Welton, Iowa, among the first of the S. D. B. people. He was always an active, energetic man and was greatly interested in public affairs, and was closely identified with all the interests of North Loup till his health failed him last summer. He carried the mails from the depot to the post office from the time the railroad began carrying it until he was compelled last August, to resign on account of ill health. There has been no one else who has ever lived here who was a more familiar figure than "Jud" as he was called by everyone. In his younger days he was an active worker in the S. D. B. church of which he was a member, and for a good many years acted as chorister. Before his mind failed him he again identified himself with his church, and was reinstated to full membership. Thus another old settler has gone and has left only a memory of good things conscientiously done.
