Claud Davis Drowns in Catawba River, 1917

 “Colored Man Drowns in Catawba River,” from the Hickory Daily Record, July 3, 1917

Claud Davis, colored, of Ineman, S.C., employed as cook for the H.F. Deitz paint crew on the Southern Railway Company, was drowned last night about 8 o’clock at Catawba in the Catawba River. He was in bathing with a number of other people and seems to have fallen into a deep hole and could not swim.
