THE DAVIS SEWING MACHINE.

Job Anthony Davis died on Sunday January 31, 1886 at Wollaston,
Mass.. During the past year Mr. Davis has been engaged in perfecting still another improved sewing machine,
to which it may truly be said he gave his life.
A man of great mental power, untiring energy and self sacrifice, he forgot himself in his beloved occupation.
He contracted the disease (edema?) which caused his death.
He was respected and loved by all who knew him in social and business circles.
Mr Davis leaves a widow and one son, Mr Willard A. Davis,
a graduate of Yale and a member of the Saffolk bar.
