Mr. and Mrs. Wilson are among the early settlers of this county, and
endured all the hardships of pioneer life. She had been a faithful
member of the Christian Church for a number of years. Her friends are
numbered only by her acquaintances.

She was a faithful wife, a loving mother, a good neighbor, and a friend
to everybody. For several years she had been suffering from a
complication of diseases, but she was a patient sufferer until the death
angel came to take her home where suffering is no more.

She leaves to mourn her untimely departure, a husband, seven children,
six grandchildren, four sisters: Mrs. Sarah Hosier of McCook, Nebraska,
Mrs. George [Letitia] Wall of Topeka, Kansas, Mrs. Laura Thompson of
Kansas City, Kansas, and Mrs. Ella [Malissa Ellen] Hinkley of Long
Beach, California; and one brother, Mr. Benjamin Jackson of Wichita,
besides cousins, nieces and nephews and a host of friends. The funeral
was preached by Rev. F. J. Foster of Dresden, at the Shibboleth Church
at 2 p.m. [Dec. 6] text Luke 8:52. Interment was made in the Shibboleth

We join with the whole community in heartfelt sympathy.
