Mrs. Purnilla Davis was born Nov. 25, 1835, and died at the home of her son, Jay, Dec. 27, 1907.
She married Luther Davis Sept. 28, 1854. To them were born eight children, three of whom are left to mourn their mother's death.
Mrs. Davis was a member of the Farnam, Nebr., Seventh-day Baptist church; of which church two of her daughters are active members.
She leaves in her home an empty chair,
In her church an empty seat;
And if I read her life aright,
In heaven a record complete.
