David D. Wilson, 85, died on Tuesday at 1:22 p. m. He had suffered a stroke on Thursday at 5:20 p. m. Mr. Wilson would have been 86 years old on Christmas Day had he lived.

Funeral services will be on Thursday at 2 p. m. at the United Presbyterian church at Lenox with Rev. Earl Moneymaker officiating. Burial in the Clearfield cemetery.

Four children preceded him in death.

Mr. Wilson was born near Crawfordsvillle in Washington county, Iowa [25 Dec 1863]. He came to Taylor county in a covered wagon with his parents when he was 12 years of age, and lived in Taylor county all the rest of his life except the two years he lived at Fort Collins, Colo. 1900 to 1902.

He was a prominent farmer and stock raiser and retired from active farming in 1920. While in Colorado visiting he walked all the way up the old cog railway to the top of Pike's Peak when he was 35 years old.

Although his vocation was farming, he worked at the carpenter trade for two years. He helped build the H. and S. railroad at Clearfield. He was interested in all types of sports. He enjoyed baseball and was the oldest member on the volley ball team at Lenox for a number of years. He was a faithful church member and a good citizen.
