THE LAMPASAS LEADER
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1904
Wallace Wigham was born July 18, 1879, in Bourba county, Ala. He came to Texas in 1886, where he lived until his death, which occurred in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Sept. 25, 1904.
While the event of his death had been anticipated on account of the character of his malady, yet the superior qualities which he possessed had caused him to so entwine himself into the lives of others that it came as a sad blow. His life was an exemplary one, and perhaps no young man in the county had a greater number of friends.
His father died when he was ony 13 years of age, and since that time he has borne the responsibility of the home. By his prudence, industry, and untiring energy he proved himself to be a worthy son. Eleven years ago he gave his heart to God and united with the Methodist Episcopal church, south. In the last days of his sickness he was perfectly resigned to God's will. He did not die as one without hope, but in the faith he was ushered into the presence of his Redeemer. Today heaven is more attractive than ever before, because he is there. The work of his hands abides with us, and as long as men commend virtue, integrity and strong christian manhood, his memory will abide in the hearts of those who knew him.
