Obituary of WILLIAM J. WILEY
William J. Wiley was born at Piqua OH December 26, 1841 and departed this life June 7, 1914 at his home in Arma KS, being almost 73 years old.

Early in life he made a profession of religion and joined the United Presbyterian church at Sidney OH and lived a consistent life and died in the Christian faith.

At the age of 19 years he joined the first Ohio Cavalry where he served his country faithfully for over three years and was engaged in many hard battles, and at the close of the war he was honorably discharged on Oct 3, 1867. He was united in marriage to Miss Nancy Jane Munday in Montazuma OH. To this union eleven children were born, five of which have preceded him to the better land. Of the living there five sons and one daughter: Elmer G who lives at Argonia KS, Samuel R. of Arma KS, Bertha Christian of Clyde KS, John W of Jewell IA, Wm. A. of Arma Kansas and Jesse L. of Whitetail __ont Besides these there are three (?) brothers and one sister and a kind, loving wife who has traveled life's journey with him for nearly fifty years. All these are left to mourn the loss of a kind and loving father, husband and brother.
