Wilkinson, Charles
August 7, 1899
The Eugene Daily Guard (Eugene, OR)
-Daily Guard, Aug 7

A life bright with promise has ended, and hopes are unrealized because of wasting disease and untimely death.

Charles K Wilkinson died in Eugene, at the residence of his parents, Sunday morning August 6, at 10 o'clock, aged 27 years, 7 months and 5 days.  He was born at Mineral Point, Wisconsin, and with his parents came to Eugene in 1883.  Had the advantages of our public schools, and the State University for several years, lacking only one year of beoming a graduate.  His anxiety to commence the work which he had mapped out for his life, that of law, prompted him to forego that honor.

Was elected a member of the lower house of the Oregon legislature from Lane county at the June, 1892, election lacking a few days of having attained his majority when elected.  In spite of his youth and youthful appearance he made a useful member, and won encomiums from his fellow members for his efforts and votes towards securing good and practical legislation for the best interests of the state.  He held a position in the Portland custom house under Collector Black from 1894 to 1896.

His delicate health induced him to seek a warmer climate, and he went to Arizona and secured a location for the practice of his profession, the law.  His health improved in the dry southern and mountain air, and he weighed heavier than ever before.  While in Arizona he married his wife whom he had first met in Portland.  A cold which he contracted permanently settled on his lungs and rapidly developed into consumption.  Made a trip to New York city for treatment which failed to improve his condition.  Then went to Boulder and Denver, Colorado, but continued to steadily grow worse.  He lost hope, and last May turned his face to the home of his youth and early manhood with no other expectation than that of meeing an early death.  His wife remained at Denver.  A father, mother, one brother and two sisters, residents of Eugene, survive him.  A younger brother died of consumption a few years ago.

Charles Wilkinson's ambitions and abilities were such that had kindly nature endowed him with a physique in keeping with his mental attributes he would have attained prominence in the legal, perhaps political world.  But physical limitations could not be set aside, and with expectations and ambitions unfulfilled, with the possibilities of life only fairly before him, he has paid the penalty of human existence.

Wilson, Sarah
Wednesday, November 17, 1909
Junction City Times (Junction City, OR)
Died, Thursday morning at 11 o’clock, November 11, 1909, Mrs. Sarah A Wilson, wife of Freeman Wilson, at her home six miles northwest of Junction City.

For two years Mrs. Wilson had been in poor health, the family knew there were no hopes of her recovery, yet when the sad ending came, it fell as a heavy blow on the bereaved husband and children.

Mrs. Wilson was born in Gouviner, St Lawrence county, New York, October 17, 1850, being 59 years and 25 days of age at the time of her death.

Her maiden name was Sarah A Rider, her father died when she was five years old and soon after his death, the mother and little daughter moved to Ridgetown, Ontario, where they lived until she was nineteen years old, when she was united in marriage to Freeman Wilson, January 6, 187?.

They began life on a farm where they lived for several years; then they with their two children, Ebba and Viola, moved to Central Lake, Michigan, where they resided for thirty-five years. Two more children came to bless their home, Welbery and Joseph, all of whom survive her. About two years ago Mrs. Wilson’s health began to fail and she steadily grew worse in spite of all that loving hands could do to help her.

Mr. Wilson thought perhaps the western climate might benefit her declining health, so he decided to take her to Oregon. They moved here March 15, 1909, and took up their residence on a pleasant little farm six miles from Junction City, which Mr. Wilson purchased on their arrival.

She leaves a devoted husband and four children to mourn her loss, one daughter Mrs. Viola Sisson of Monroe, Oregon and three sons Ebba, Welbery and Joseph of Junction City, Oregon, also six grand children, an aged mother and a half sister in Watertown, South Dakota, and a host of other relatives and friends who will miss her genial smile and friendly council.

Mrs. Wilson was a kind good friend and neighbor, and a devoted and loving mother, always looking after the interests and welfare of her husband and family. She brought her children up in the admonition of the Lord, teaching them to shun evil and to love truth and right. She was a member of the ME Church and her funeral was held in the ME Church of Monroe, Friday forenoon, November 13, conducted by Rev. AR Hawkings. Her remains were committed to the dreamless dust in the Monroe cemetery, and as the loved ones turned from the earthly mound, made white by the beautiful flowers which covered it, they looked away towards that Better Land where the spirit of the just dwell forever more and realized that the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. The sympathy of many friends goes out to the husband and children in this sad hour of bereavement.
