"Mrs. Permelia (Blake) Wilson was born in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, in March 1831. With her parents, she removed in 1832 to the vicinity of Oxford, Butler Co., Ohio. In 1847, the family removed to near Morning Sun, Iowa.

On Washington's birthday, February 22nd, 1849 Permelia Blake was married to J. Riley Wilson, and with him united with Morning Sun U.P. Church. Mrs Wilson was the mother of twelve children, nine of whom are now living, three have died in infancy. My acquaintance with Mrs. Wilson was short, but I had came to look regularly for the kindly greeting and warm shake of the hand at the close of the Sabbath morning services. It was my privelege [sic] to visit her during her brief, but painful illness, and at her request, approach the Mercy Seat, and also heard her express her appreciation of God's goodness. Her illness, as already mentioned, was brief; on the Monday before she died she was in Morning Sun and called to see Dr. J. H. Graham, little thinking that she would pass away before him, that same evening, shortly before ten o'clock, she was seized with a violent pain, and on the arrival of the doctor he found her suffering with all the symptoms of appendicitis. Death ended her sufferings on Friday morning. She fell asleep in Jesus, aged 66 years.
Rev. E. M. McFadden"
