Margaret J. Wilson Obituary

Clark County Clipper, October 21, 1901

Margaret J. Wilson

Margaret J. Wilson, was born at Cape May, N. J., May 10, 1835, departed this life at her home in Clark county, Kansas, November 15, 1901, aged 66 years, 6 months and 5 days.

Deceased came to Clark county with her husband and family in 1885, and had lived here on a farm ever since.  Her husband preceded her several years ago, and since then she has made her home on the farm with her son.  She leaves five children to mourn the loss of a mother, namely: Matt, Louise, Susie, Charles and Belle.  The daughters, Louise lives at Webb City, Mo.; Susie at Peoria, Oklahoma; Belle at Hartwell, Neb.; and the two sons in this county.

Mrs. Wilson has been ailing for some time, but no immediate fears of death were expected, and Matt had gone to Great Bend and Charles was at Bucklin when the end came.  She had prepared for the night and fell across the bed never to rise again in life.  There was no one present except Mr. Matt Wilson.

The bereaved children have the sympathy of the community.

Mrs. Wilson having been a member of the Presbyterian church for over thirty five years, the funeral services were conducted at the house by Rev. W. L. Roberts, pastor of that church.  The remains were interred in the city cemetery.

Card of Thanks.

We desire to express our thanks to the people who so kindly assisted us in the last sad rites of the burial of our dear mother, and for the many kind sympathies extended.

Mr. and Mrs. Matt Wilson,
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wilson.
