William W. Wilkerson

W. W. WILKERSON Yarrellton, Texas, Feb. 3--The Honorable W. W. Wilkerson, aged 80 years, among the first settlers of this community, surrendered to the grim reaper, death, on Friday morning, January 29th 1915. His death was not wholly unexpected, as he had been in ill health for three or four years. A widow and eight children, four sons and four daughters, survive, all of whom were present during deceased late illness. Relatives from a distance were Jas. A. Wilkerson of Temple, Mrs. Maud Davis of Red Oak and Mrs. J. R. Harris, from Hatchel, Texas. Rev. Dr. Hunter, pastor of the Yarrelton Baptist church, conducted the funeral services at the home, whence the remains were borne to North Elm cemetery for interment. We wish to extend to the bereaved relatives our heartfelt sympathy and commend them to the allwise Father, who can give peace to the troubled soul and heal the broken hearts.
