Wilson, Joshua (10 MAY 1835 - 21 APR 1920)

Joshua L. Wilson, one of the old residents of Clark County, Wis. died April 21st, 1920, aged nearly 85 years. He was born at Ellisburg, N.Y., May 10th, 1835; was married to Mina Wilson in 1862.

One daughter was born to them. His wife died in 1868. In 1875 he moved to Watertown, Wis., later moving to Neillsville, Wis. to make his home with his niece, Mrs. Fred Lavine, where he was well cared for in his declining years. His health gave way the last few months of his life and he required constant attention.

Mr. Wilson was a temperate, conscientious and capable man when in health and strength, and his industry and honesty won for him the esteem of the Community. The funeral was held Saturday at the Congregational Church.
