Cassville Republican
July 23, 1914

Killed Instantly: Crane, Mo., July 17.
The funeral of Wesley Wilson, a young farmer who was killed in a runaway, Monday, six miles west of here, was held yesterday at the home, followed by interment in the Osa Cemetery.

Wilson was killed before the eyes of his mother when he was thrown from a loaded wagon as the wagon struck a fence post. The accident occurred as Wilson was hauling a small load of wood to the house. His mother was walking in front of the team of mules going down an incline to prevent them from running away. The wagon ran upon the mules and they began to run. Wilson was thrown out over the front of the wagon when the collision came and the wagon passed over his body. He regained his feet but fell dead as his mother reached his side. The right side of the chest was crushed according to an examination by a physician.

Wilson was 26 years of age and is survived besides his mother, by the widow and two small children.
