Charles Wesley Wilson died at his home near Dry Bayou Wednesday, May 30, 1928, after a lingering illness of ten weeks' duration. He had been in poor health for several months previous to his last illnes.
Everything was done that medical skill and devoted nursing could do for his recovery, but all in vain. God called him home, where his suffering will be no more but peace and joy will be his forever.
In his passing away, the community lost a good citizen, the people a friend indeed and his family a kind, loving father and husband.
Mr. Wilson was born on the farm on which he died, Jan. 23, 1863, having lived practically all of his life there. He was married three times: First to Mary Elizabeth Massey in June 1885, to which union five children were born, two of whom survive him, being Lee Wilson and Mrs. Josie Mullins, both of Dry Bayou vicinity. His second marriage was to Nora Wheeler--two children were born to this union but died in infancy. Last he wed Mrs. Matilda Slavings. To them were born five children--four of whom survive him, being Mrs. Edith Quartermous, Mrs. Lorean Quartermous, both living on the farm place; Addie Bell Wilson and Charles Dawson Wilson, who are at the parental home.
He professed faith in Christ in 1881 and united with the Baptist church at Dry Bayou, being a devoted and consistent member from that time until his death.
He is survived by his wife, six children, two brothers--George Wilson and Rev. J.J. Wilson of Dry Bayou, and one sister, Mrs. Laura Stewart of Marston.
Funeral services wee held at the Dry Bayou church, being conducted y Rev. D.K. Foster, after which the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at that place. The services were witnessed by a large concourse of relatives and friends, showing the high esteem in which Mr. Wilson was held by all who knew him.
