1911 Davis query

Good morning.
As you have been to Davis you know how big it is...or isn't. Iam wondering if it ever had a newspaper. You might look for the SD Historical Society (in Pierre) as they are a receptacle for newspapers that have no home. I believe the Hurley papers ended up there. That is the closest town and many years ago the bound papers were stored in an abandoned building. Yikes.
I believe the Parker newspapers are available in their library and, as the county seat, this persons obit might have been printed there. The Centerville papers are in their library, which is now housed in their school. I haven't been there since they've moved so don't know about it's availability.
I would try an e-mail search for the Parker and Centerville libraries. If you can't find one try the Sioux Falls city library and ask if they have an e-mail address for them. I have found the SD Historical Society by typing that in on a google search. Or, letters always work...just slowly. The Centerville school is 610 Lincoln, Centerville SD, 57014, phone 605-563-2291 but 2004 telephone book I have shows the address at 419 Florida St, phone 605-253-2540, which I think is the old address. I would try the Parker library first, which has no address, phone 605-297-5552. Parker zip is 57053.
