      Mr. Elijah Wilson, 79, prominent Decatur Countian, died at his home in Brinson, Sunday, July 23 after an illness of several months.

      Mr. Wilson was born and reared in Decatur County. He was a devout Christian and a member of the Baptist Church. He was a farmer during his entire career and gave most of his time and interest to the duties that devolved upon him in that capacity. It is with a feeling of sincere regret and sorrow that many will know of his untimely passing.

      He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Etta Wilson, two sons, T. B. Wilson of Thomasville, Ga., and P. J. Wilson of this city; six daughters, Mrs. I. M. Lynn, Mrs. J. H. Cheshire, and Mrs. E. A. Lynn of Donalsonville, Mrs. Minnie Lynn of Coloumbus, Mrs. C. Jones, of this city and Mrs. Charles Nyquest, of Ft. McClellan, Ala.

      Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, July 24, at 3:00 o'clock at the Bethel Church with the Rev. H. J. Edwards of Shellman and the Rev. Groom of Brunswick, officiating. Interment was made in the Bethel Cemetery.

      The following gentlemen served as active pallbearers: C. M. Jackson, E. J. Jackson, J. W. Jackson, J. T. Jackson and E. P. Moody. E. W. Cox Funeral Home in charge.
