The Late Asa Wilson

One of the links connecting this generation with the past was severed on 2 Jan 1920 by the death of Mr. Asa Wilson, which occurred at the home of his daughter, 
Mrs. William Meredith, near Jarvis.

The funeral took place from Mr. Meredith's residence to the Lynnville Methodist Church where the services were conducted by Revs. Smith of Jarvis and Waldron of Windham. The remains were laid to rest in the Lynnville Cemetery beside the grave of Mrs. Wilson, who predeased her husband about eight years ago.

The late Asa Wilson was born at Lynnville 87 years ago, and spent practically his whole life up to the time of his retirement from active work in the neighborhood of his birthplace.

"Among the beautiful pictures that hang on memory's wall" are those of Mr. Wilson in his home, social and church life, and we feel assured that he has been granted an abundant entrance into rest, and will feast eternally upon the joys of the "sweet bye and bye" of which he used so often to sing in class meeting.

Deceased is survived by one daughter and two sons: Mrs. Meredith of Jarvis, George of Ottawa, and Edward of Australia. One sister, Mrs. M. Boughner of Tillsonburg also survives.
