W. A. Williams

The community was shocked when the news came that W. A. Williams had died from influenza Sunday evening. He and his family came here in the spring and were living on one of S.W. Miles farms.

He was buried in the Lostine cemetery Monday afternoon. He leaves a wife and one child. Mrs. Williams mother came over from Freewater Monday and will assist in caring for her daughter who is sick with the influenza. Mr. William's brother and wife arrived from the east Tuesday for a visit and it was a great shock to them when they found that he had passed away.
