Eliza Wilson

(From Tuesday's Daily)

The grim reaper claimed two more of Hebron's pioneers last night, and the visitations were made only one hour apart. Mrs. Diantha Hogan, 78 years old, who had lived there 50 years, died of asthma at 11 o'clock, and Mrs. Eliza Wilson passed away at 10 o'clock at her home west of Hebron.

Mrs. Hogan was born in Michigan, and came to Hebron in her early life. Since the death of her husband she had resided with her son, Henry Hogan. The other surviving child is Silas Hogan, living at Plum Grove, Lake county. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 at the Hebron Methodist church, with Rev. J. C. Martin in charge.

Mrs. Wilson would have been 79 years of age had she lived until May. She was born in Ireland and married there. Soon after this event Mr. and Mrs. Wilson came to this country and settled at Hebron. The only survivor of the family is a son, Andrew Wilson, with whom Mrs. Wilson passed her last days. The funeral will be held tomorrow at the home, with Rev. Mr. Filer, of the Hebron Presbyterian church, officiating.
