Miscellaneous Newspaper Clippings


The following is a clipping from a Utica paper: July 28, 1904

"Little Falls, July 28 "Aunt" Mary Adle Davis celebrated her 95th birthday yesterday afternoon at her home 602 East Monroe street, by entertaining the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, together with a few visiting members of the D.A.R., and Mrs. Roberts of Utica, Vice State Regent of the order. She was presented a handsome bread and milk bowl and a fine silver spoon, on which was inscribed name, date, ect. The home looked very pretty in a trimming of American Flags.

Five generations were present to receive the guests, Mrs. Davis, Peter Davis, Mrs. F.H. Baum, Mrs. Kezzy Perkins, and Miss. Merie Perkins. Mrs. Davis's father fought in the war for American independence, and so she is a real Daughter of the Revolution.

From the Genealogy of Sherman O. Klock.

Note: Mary Adler Davis’s father was John Adler who married Magdalena Klock, daughter of Adam Johannes Klock and Catharine Stauring, Adam’s parents were Adam Klock and Catherine Caty Seeber, Adam’s parents were Col. Jacob Klock and Elizabeth Bellinger.
