Benefit for the old people’s home.

Wilson Daily Times, 10 July 1917.

A.A.I Davis soon moved on to another old folks’ home in Wilmington, North Carolina. (Per newspaper accounts, Davis was pastor of a Baptist church in Albany, New York, as late as 1915, but by 1916 was running an old folks’ home  in Maxton, North Carolina, in 1916. What was going on here?)
