THE LATE COL. GEORGE WILSON.
A Summary of the Important
Events in His Honorable Career.

The death of this old, honorable and useful citizen at his old residence, four miles northwest of Cedar Hill, a few days since, recalls his value as a citizen. He came from Missouri to Lamar county about 1840---was in several expeditions against the Indians---and in 1847 was an officer in Col. Wm. C. Young's regiment for the Mexican war; but they reached Mexico as the war closed. In 1848, he came to Dallas county, where he has ever ranked among the foremost of its most enlightened and successful farmers. He rendered valuable service in the civil war and also represented Dallas county in the legislature. While always a popular man, he shrank from office holding. For a great many years, he was a conscientious member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Having passed beyond four score years, he died lamented by all who knew him, leaving his aged wife, several sons, a daughter and several grand children to cherish his memory. A more upright and estimable man never lived in Dallas county.
