Wilson, Reuben #3 (1822 - 27 APR 1902)
The remains of Reuben Wilson were brought here Sunday night for burial in the Weston (Clark Co., Wis.) Cemetery, and the services were held on Tuesday. On Monday the mortal remains of T.V. Carleton were laid to rest in the cemetery in this city (Neillsville, Clark Co.). Both were war veterans and both were highly respected by this community and by all wherever known.
Mr. Wilson was the father of Geo. M. Wilson, for many years a citizen of Neillsville and the town of Weston, where his father always made his home. This old veteran was a musician in the war and ever after, it being his delight to head the martial band on national holidays and other suitable occasions and lead the parade as a fifer. But he was a good drummer also, and could make music that would rouse the patriotic feeling of the dullest. He died at Duluth, where his son George and family have been living the past two years. Deceased was born in Jefferson Co., N.Y., in 1822, served in the Civil War as fife major two years, was discharge for disability, moved to Jefferson Co., Wis., in 1865, and to this county in 1880. His death was caused by disease of kidneys and inflammation of the bladder.
Further notice of Mr. Carleton’s death, and something of his history will be found elsewhere in this paper.
