A telegram was received here yesterday afternoon about 2 o’clock announcing the death of Mr. A. Lex Davis, which occurred a short while previous in his home in Rocky Mount. Mr. Davis was a native of this county. Influenza and pneumonia caused his death. He was about forty years old, an is survived by his father, Rev. A. C. Davis; his wife, who before her marriage was Miss Roxie Fulenwider, daughter of the late G. O. Fulenwider of Monroe; and a son and daughter. Mrs. Davis and son are both ill with pneumonia.

For years Mr. Davis was in the employ of the late T. J. Shannon, and when he disposed of his mercantile business to the Cash Mercantile Company, he remained with the new firm in the same capacity for some time.

About fifteen years ago Mr. Davis went to Charlotte, where he entered the employ of Efird Brothers. He was with this firm at the time of his death, being the manager of their store at Rocky Mount. Mr. Davis was a popular, likable man He has many warm friends in Monroe today, who were shocked to learn of his death. He was a member of the Baptist church.
