Married J.H.Davis 1893 Bayard, Nebraska

PIONEERING IN THE SHADOW OF CHIMNEY ROCK Text: Page 305 Page: Pages 305, 306 Mrs. Hults was left in poor financial condition with six small children. Within a few months, friends set aside two days and asked all to come with team and wagon to build a sod house for her. A paper was circulated to which friends donated generously -- Alliance Milling Company gave liberally of flour. In order to care for her family there are yet those who recall that Mrs.Hults took in washing, walking about four miles to town to receive or return clothes. After a time of Struggling to provide for her family, Mrs.Hultz married J. H. Davis, a widower who lived with his family in the community. It was not too long until the health of Mr. Davis, who endured many privations as an old soldier began to fail. In those early days when becoming ill, the only thing people knew was to seek more favorable climate. With this in mind, Mr. Davis went to an Old Soldiers Colony in Georgia in November 1895. He wrote back many favorable letters during the next eight months so the entire families of Davis and Hults decided to go there to live. They prepared to make the trip by covered wagon along with other families from the area. They had gotten only as far as Sutherland, Nebraska, when that terrible bolt of lightning struck their camp taking the life of little Charlie Davis and knocking others unconscious. Mrs Hults-Davis who was travelling on the train, rather than with the caravan, was contacted at Grand Island and she came back to the scene. After a few days they all continued their trip to Georgia where they were to live. When Mrs Hults married J.H. Davis and moved to the state of Georgia, she abandoned her deceased husband's homestead north-west of Bayard. This gave Rube Davis the opportunity to make a filing on this land. Prior to this time, Mrs. Hults had given Austin Moomaw a five year lease on the place.
