      Edward W. Davenport, father of Frank Davenport of the Davenport Bros. Lumber Co., died at his home on the Barrett farm, Monday night, June 27, 1904. Had he lived till August he would have been 82 years old. Mr. Davenport was injured in a fall about two years ago. This, with a steady decline from old age, brought on his death.

He was born in the state of Massachusetts. in Utah he was a member of the Mormon battalion, and one of the band of minute men organized for defense against the Indians.
