Wilkinson, David W.
|Description||Each wave that washes the shore of time obliterates some landmark. Daily, hourly, the crumbling sands hide some foot-prints. To-day we are called upon to record the gathering to his fathers of one of the oldest and most respectable of our citizens. At 11 o'clock, this A. M., the spirit of David W. Wilkinson, that had for seventy-three years animated his body, took its flight to its eternal home.. Mr. Wilkinson had been a citizen for more than forty years, and during all that time had been regarded by every one as a model man. At one time he was Auditor of the county, which position he filled with honor to himself and credit to his constituency. He was also County Assessor for a long time, when the office was filled by one man, and to this position he was two or three times re-elected.. His funeral will take place on Thursday next, from the Universalist church, at 2 o'clock P.M., under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity.. see Masonic notice c6. see 20 Dec Masonic notice c7. see 21 Dec The Funeral To-day c2|
