Death Notice: Percival Leland Davis

Percy Davis

Below are two death notices for Percival Leland Davis, my great-grandfather.  Percy married Viola Bausman. Their son, Stanley, was my grandfather.

The first notice appeared on page 3 of the Galena Daily Gazette, Friday evening edition, on April 16, 1943.  (I do not have an image.)
