Death of Jeffernom Davis. Th
It will be remembered that the an
nonncemnent of the illness of tl.s noted the
nman was made throughout the coun- .Ie
try some time ago, as he had beer
taken sick at one of his plantatiorns in
Warren county, Miss'. and had stoppl th
in New Orleans. lie had malarial
fever with other diseases. At times
he seemed better. He insisted all the wo
while that he was nearing his en'l. oil
nntwiths.tand.hug the doctors tried to
impress him with the belief that lhet s
was better. ins
We regret that our limited space fu
p recludes the whole sketch of the 1lit's
of this distinguished man.
We'will give below a few extract
from his lite sketch:
"Jttferson Davis was born on th
3l day of June, 1808. in what wa.
t.en 'Christian county. Ky.. though 'e
tl:c exact spot of his nativity may li e
within the limits of the subseq'ently an
organizod county of Toldd. The lin
of division between the two counties
as now existing. is said to lass througih
the site of the Davis homestead, an ri
the late Confeder.ate I'residlent him ei
self was not luite sure on which sid
of it he was born.
His father, Samuel Davis, was
native of Georgia. While yet in hi
minority he had followed his olde
brothers to the field, at first as a pri
rate, and afterward a commission
officer, of the Georgia troops engag e
in the war of the first Revolution. H i
attained the rank of captain, an
rerved until the achievement of th
independence of the colonies. H -
married a Miss Cook, of South Ca
lina, who had also been nurtured ami
the events and emotions of the Rev
lution. Their children were, conse a
qoently, trained in the traditions an
t.rinciples then prevalent, relative
the structure and character of th
government of the American Con
federation, which exerted so potent a
influece npon the future career of a
least one of them.
"From the meagre information thai
is now extant with regard to th
Davis family, both on the paterna
and maternal side, it may be fairl
inferred that their condition in fii
was one of independence-perhaps
ease--but not of affluence or distine
tion. None of them is known to hav
toccnpied any conspicuous or inflnen
tial public position. Probably the*v
Aere of that large class of lessaer land
holders and planters in the South
who, while reebgnizing superiors i
station, were indifferent to politics
honors and content to enjoy a certai
degree of local coneidesation, whil
their social advantage~ s were suffcien
to render the transition to a publi
career an easy step for any signall
gifted or exceptionally ambitio
member of such a family.
"The subject of this sketch was th
youngest of ten children-five or
either sex. Three of his brothers beo
arms in the war of 1812.
After some further service, ehie
in garrison duty on the Northweste
frontier, Lieut. Davis resigned h'
commission in the army in June, 1835
to engage in cotton planting in th
Mississippi Valley. About the same
time he married Miss Sarah Knox
Talyor, daughter of Col. Zachary
Taylor, afterward Presdent of the

often repeated story that this marrig

him of the engagement and intended
