October 16, 1953

Mrs. Herdis F. Clements was advised today of the death of her sister, Mrs. Nellie F. Davies, of Davis, Calif.  Mrs. Davies was 89 years old.  She was the seventh child of the late pioneer, Lynn township Posey county couple, L. C. and Elisabeth French.


Mrs. Davies was married in 1887 to Dr. John B. Wilson who died in 1902.  She remained a widow until 1924 when she was married to Frank Davies, who survives her.  Funeral rites and burial for Mrs. Davies will be at Davis, Calif; her late home city.


Of the pioneer family of which Mrs. Davies was a member only two of her generation survive- her two sisters, Mrs. Clements, Mount Vernon and Mrs. Sallie T. Crooks, Indianapolis.
