This is the second loss and only those who have suffered similar misfortune can even imagine their grief. In such earthly losses only God and time can heal the bruised hearts.

Mr. Wilson was a member of the Methodist church, South, a lifelong and uncompromising Democrat and a man of very strong Southern sentiment. In the civil war of the sixties, he followed the flag of the Confederacy and got credit for being an excellent soldier. During the thirty years that we knew him it was his great delight to talk of the civil war and the struggle that followed it in rebuilding the wrecked and ruined South. He was the soul of hospitality and delighted to entertain his friends. It is remarkable that Mr. Wilson died in the beginning hour of the 76th anniversary of the day of his birth and that his granddaughter, Mildred, daughter of Florence Azbill, had died on the 1st inst., on the fourth anniversary of her birth. The remains of little Mildred were laid to rest at Bethel on the 2nd inst.

Cawthon, who bore him three sons and two daughters, all of whom survive, except John Whit who died fifteen years ago at the age of nearly eight years.

LUCY (SANDERS) WILSON , aged 29 years, 3 months and 1 day, wife of Charles P. Wilson, died at her home here last Saturday morning at 9:15 o’clock, after a long illness with tuberculosis. Four children beside the husband are left to mourn the loss of one who can not be replaced—the most loved one whom they will never see again in the flesh or the spirit unless in that land that is fairer than day to which we have always believed the good wife and mother is entitled to go. Mrs. Wilson’s maiden name was Miss Lucy Sanders and she became the wife of Charles P. Wilson at Westport in December 1895. When very young she became a member of the Baptist Church and lived a devout Christian life. After coming to Lexington about eight months ago, Mrs. Wilson made many warm friends among the ladies in that section of the tow where the Wilson home was made and in her comparatively early death there is much sympathy for the husband and children.

WHITSON H. WILSON died at his home near Huron at noon on Thursday of last week (27 February 1908) at the advanced age of 78 years, 11 months and 16 (s/b 18) days. Mr. Wilson had been in feeble health for some time but the immediate cause of death was pneumonia and his last illness covered but a few days. Around his deathbed were gathered all his surviving children; John, Hugh and Will, Dora (Mrs. E.E. Milam) and Florence (Mrs. S.D. McAdams). A son Tom, and daughter Mrs. Dave Ross, died several years ago. The wife of our subject and the mother of his children passed away several years ago. Mr. Wilson had been a member of the Southern Methodist Church at Bethel for many years and it was fitting that his friend and one time pastor, Rev. J.M. Pickens should officiate at his funeral service and burial which occurred Friday at Chapel Hill.

To our mind Mr. Wilson represented the highest type of man and citizen. He reared a splendid family and during his long life never deviated from a course which won the love of many and commanded the respect of all. He was frugal but generous, economical but accommodating, and many a time did he lend a helping hand to those on whom fortune did not smile. He nobly fought the battle of life with honesty and industry as his weapons and had conquered many years ago. We believe he has gone to a well earned reward and we know that his children will prize as a rich legacy the unstained name he leaves them to cherish. May his soul rest in peace.
