“Word was received at South Portsmouth Wednesday afternoon of the death of William Davis, a former grocer of that place, at Haline, Washington. The message stated no particulars but was forwarded to the young man’s parents1 and at St. Paul, Kentucky.”

“Davis who was familiarly known as Poker, mysteriously disappeared from South Portsmouth four years ago. For a long time his whereabouts were unknown. He was 38 years of age and unmarried.”2
