Wilson Daily Times, 10 March 1922.

One of the Batts brothers was Amos Batts, who appears in the 1920 census of Wilson township, Wilson County, as the 48 year-old owner of an undertaking shop. Columbus “C.E.” Artis is not listed in that census, but he is the Artis above and operated a funeral business on East Nash Street until the 1950s.
