OBITUARY ~ JOHN STEWART DAVENPORT
1878 - 1948

John Stewart Davenport, son of Nelson and Mary Ann Davenport was born September 17, 1878, and passed away July 1, 1948, at his home 6 miles north west of Diagonal, following a short illness. He was 69 years, 9 months and 14 days.

His early days in life were spent on his father's farm just west of his present home. Later he and his brother Roy were in the drug business in North Dakota for 20 years, disposing of this business in 1920 to return to this community and buy his present home. February 21, 1917 he was united in marriage to Margaretha Lenore Schultz to which union were born four sons.

He was a member of the Fairview Methodist church. With his departure there has gone from us a kind and loving husband and father, a noble character, and beloved citizen, all qualities which enabled him to make a host of friends wherever he resided.

Those left to mourn his passing are his wife Margaretha Lenore, four sons, John Nelson of Lenox, Marshall Lee of Waterloo, Donald Ray of the United States Navy in California, and Russell Dean at home; three granddaughters, Connie Elaine, Gail Ellen and Vicki Anne, two sisters, Mrs. George Condra of Lincoln, Nebraska and Mrs. Hanna Hayes of Clearfield; one brother, Pete I., of Clearfield; also many relatives and friends with whom he spent many happy hours the last few years since retiring from active work.

Funeral services were held Sunday, July 4th, 1948, at 2:30 p.m. at the Methodist church, Diagonal, conducted by the Rev. Weed of Tingley. Burial was at Rising Sun Cemetery just 1 miles from his home.
