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