From the Richland Shield & Banner Newspaper, Jan. 28, 1888:
SAND HILL, MONROE TOWNSHIP.
"Died on Friday evening, Jan. 20, 1888, Samuel Wilson, Sen., aged 61 years and 14 days. Funeral services were held at Mt. Zion church on Sabbath afternoon, conducted by Rev. G. M. Grau. A large concourse of people were in attendance. The deceased was born in Westmoreland County, Penn. He grew up under the control and influence of Christian parents, and at an early age became a member of the U.P. (Note: United Presbyterian) church. In the beginning of the year 1884 he with his family removed to Ashland County, Ohio. Shortly after coming to Ohio he connected himself with the Lutheran Church at this place, of which he lived a consistent member up to the time of this death. During the whole period of his sickness, which lasted for about eight months, not a word of murmur was ever heard to escape from his lips, but he was fully resigned at all times to the will of his maker, when he finally fell asleep in the faith in which he had lived so long. He leaves a wife and four children to mourn his departure. "
