Davis, Archibald Julian (1892–1914)

It is with the greatest regret we chronicle the death, at Sydney, on 17th inst., of Mr. Archibald Davis, of Robertson, in the Moss Vale district, third son of the late Mr. A. J. Davis, of Sydney, and brother of Mrs. E. J. Kelly, of Deep Creek, Narrabri. The deceased, who had been suffering for some time from leukemia was in his twenty-third year. Within the past twelve months' there has occurred a death in three generations of this family, the father of deceased dying in August of last year, and his grandfather (the late Rabbi Davis) in January of this year. Mrs. Kelly left for Sydney immediately in receipt of the mournful intelligence, but was not in time to see her brother alive. We extend to Mrs. Kelly and her sorrowing family our deepest sympathy in their great affliction.
