Died: 8th Jul 1835

Linton, Yorkshire

John and his brother Henry are remembered on a headstone in St Michael and All Angels churchyard at Linton in Craven, near Grassington.

"In memory of John and Henry Davis, lead miners late of Grassington, but formerly of Foolow, Derbyshire.

John died July 8th 1835 aged 54 years. Henry died March 17th 1845 aged 61 years. They are both interred in this churchyard.

This stone is erected by a friend to commemorate their great musical talent.

John had one of the deepest and most extensive bass voices in this kingdom and Henry was alike celebrated for his clear melodious tenor voice. Had they lived at this day when musical talent is so much appreciated they would have ranked at first among the musical celebrities of this present time.

Also Mary relict of the above John Davis who died October 29th 1879 aged 84 years"
