Horace S. Wilcox was born near Maumee, Ohio, December 3, 150 and died in Bryan, Ohio, February 4, 1913, at the age of 62 years, two months and one day. He was united in marriage with Maggie Earlston April 5, 1883. About 19 years ago they took to their home and to their hearts a little foster daughter, Helen, who is left to mourn with his wife, one who was an exceptionally kind father and good husband.
On February 4, 1818, as usual he gave his family an affectionate farewell, and went to his usual duties at the Lake Shore freight office, where he had been employed for about 30 years, when suddenly without a warning he drooped to the floor, and immediately expired, and as the news was quickly spread over Bryan, it brought gloom everywhere as he was well known and highly respected.
His mother died when he was a mere boy and his father re-married and he manifested his love for his foster mother, Mrs. B.A.Bacon, in many acts of kindness.
His father and mother, two brothers and one sister preceded him to the world beyond this vale of tears, leaving on this side of the river of death to mourn his departure, a wife, and foster daughter, one brother. Fred Wilcox, Mr. Pleasant, Michigan, two sisters, Mrs. O.J. Whitehorn, Toledo, Ohio and Mrs. Frank H. Thompson, Deshler, Ohio. and a niece, Mrs. Charles Blair, Bryan, Ohio, with a host of relatives and friends.
Mr. Wilcox lived in Bryan from his childhood and was an honored member of the K.O.T.M of this city for 19 years. He was a kind husband and will be sadly missed in the home circle. This dispensation reminds us that death is always at hand, how important then that we should be prepared to meet our God that we may meet him in peace. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Otterbein F. Laughbaum at the U.B. Church on February 7 at 2:00 p.m. He was assisted at the residence by Judge C.A. Bowersox and the order conducted a brief serve at the cemetery.
