Died In a Hospital
A Former Belford Resident Dies Among Strangers
Mrs. Caroline (Covert) Davis, a sister of Mrs. Mary Halsey of Belford and a former resident of that place, died recently in a hospital at Brooklyn under distressing circumstances. Mrs. Davis lived at Brooklyn and was on the way to a friend's house when she became unconscious on the street. A policeman put her in an ambulance and took her to a hospital. A week later she died in the hospital without regaining consciousness. A card in Mrs. Davis's pocketbook contained her address but her friends were not communicated with until after she was dead.
Mrs. Davis fell some time ago and struck her head. The doctor at the hospital said that her death was due to a clot of blood that had formed on the brain. Mrs. Halsey had her sister's body buried in Cypress Hill cemetery.
Mrs. Davis was the daughter of the late Catherine and Henry Covert of Belford. She lived at Belford until fifteen years ago, when she married Frank Davis and moved to Brooklyn. Mrs. Halsey of Belford is now the only member left of a large family.
