Enos Wilson (1843-1880)

A Sad Case of Suicide.

Mason. Aug. 17. - Enos Wilson, a prominent and highly respected farmer, within two miles of this place, committed suicide by shooting himself through the head. A Coroner's inquest failed to elicit any particular cause for the rash act; but that it was premeditated is evident from the fact that he had purchased a two ounce vial of laudarum yesterday, which he accidentally broke in his piocket, and when he was asked what it was he replied it was medicine. He purchased it at the drug-store of C. H. Brown & Brother, of this place. Mr. Wilson had just purchased a farm, and had been engaged repairing fences and ditches until today. His young wife is entirely prostrated, and grave fears are entertained for her recovery from the shock. Mr. Wilson served with some distinction during the late war, and received a serious wound at the battle of Stone River. - Cincinnati Entuirer.

Death of Judge J. L. Wilson
Judge John L. Wilson, one of our most prominent county citizens and a gentleman widely and favorably known in legal, political and social circles throughout Southern Ohio and Indiana, died at his home in Morrow, at half-past nine o'clock last Saturday night of apoplexy. Less than hour prior to his death he addressed a citizens' meeting assembled at the Mayor's office in that place, upon the subject of the proposed issuance of county bonds, and was apparently in his usual health and vigor. Five minutes after his return home, while seated in a chair conversing with members of his family he passed almost instantly and without a struggle from life to death.
Judge Wilson was an upright man, honest and fearless in his convictions, an able jurist, a kind husband and father and a good citizen. That is epitaph sufficient. His widow and six surviving children have the earnest sympathy of the community in their great sorrow.
The funeral will take place to-day at 1 p.m. The Masonic Lodge of which he was an honored member will participate in the funeral ceremonies.

I have scant family history. George Albert Wilson born July 26, 1847 Warren Co. OH; married Sarah Jane Williams born Feb. 22, 1847; d/o Simeon D. & Cynthia Ellen (Ward) Williams. She was one of triplets.
They had 9 children: U.S. Grant b. c1870; James, born c1872; Emma born c1873 who married Harry Rife (or Reif) of New Castle, Indiana; Oscar born c1877; Baylis born c1879; Bessie, Ella, Ben N., and Malissa.
1880 Census: George, 32, works as farmer; Sarah, 32, wife; U.S. Grant, age 10; James, age 8; Emma, age 7; Oscar, age 3; Baylis, age 4 mos.

Ben lived in St. Louis, Missouri; Malissa never married and lived in Kokomo, Indiana; Emma and Harry Rife lived in New Castle, Indiana. Baylis lived in Indiana and a Williams family let me copy a photo of him. I was given a newspaper copy of a picture of the triplets which Sarah Jane was one of them.

George Albert Wilson was born July 26, 1847 Warren County, Ohio and the son of William Wilson who married Rachel Compton. This is my ancestor (David and Diannah (Garner) Wilson). George Albert was the youngest of 11 children.
