Juliet J. DAVIS

She was 15 in 1880 attending school.

The 1900, census says she is the mother of 5 children but only 4 are still living.

NEWSPAPER: 8 February 1919, District 63 -- Several from this community attended the funeral of Mrs. Guss BRIGHT at Texas City last Friday. Rev. Baughman of Eldorado conducted the services after which the remains were laid to rest at Poplar Cemetery. Obituary: Juliet DAVIS was born December 1, 1866 near Stonefort, Illinois. Moved with her parents to Saline County when a small girl. She was united in marriage August, 1885 to G. H. BRIGHT. To this union was born five children -- one having died in infancy; the other four living are: Robert, Claud, Cletis and Mrs. Lutishia GRAVES. They were all present at the time of her death, except Cletis, who is with the American Expedictionary Forces. Sister BRIGHT was converted during the great revival at Texas City in 1905, and has remained a member of Poplar Church ever since. Mr. BRIGHT and family moved to East St. Louis some two years ago, which proved to be the most successful era of their married life, until Wednesday, January 28th, at near eleven o'clock, the death Angel called, and Sister BRIGHT answered. She leaves a devoted husband, four children, five grandchildren and one brother (Levi DAVIS); three sisters, and a host of friends and acquaintances. During the time they resided in Texas City Brother and Sister BRIGHT were closely connected with the church work there, and we can say that the future looks clear for Sister BRIGHT. She was 52 years, one month and 27 days old at the time of her death. The husband will find home vacant without the devoted wife. The children will not soon find another love so true as mother's. But we feel that our loss will bring joy eternal to her, and the way is being prepared for the future home of the family over there if they will all keep faithful to her Christ. Her desire was to live until Cletis returned, he being the youngest son.
