WILSON , Charles - Submitted by Ernie Launer
Services to be held at Local Church March 15, 1939
Funeral services for Charles Wilson, 85, prominent resident of this city, who passed away at his home here early Wednesday morning following several weeks illness with influenza, will be held this afternoon at two o'clock at the Presbyterian church with Rev. W. S. Neely officiating.
        Mr. Wilson was born on August 13, 1853 in the Sugar Grove neighborhood, east of Virginia, the son of Thomas William and Margaret Coates Wilson. On September 3, 1880, he was married to Emma Melinda Jokisch, who preceded him in death by five years. He departed this life March 15, 1939, at the age of 85 years and eight months.
Surviving are one daughter, Mrs. Nelle Harper of Ebenezer, and four sons, Lee Roy, Charles Richard, principal of the Virginia High School, Halburt and Carl, one sister, Mrs. Mary Buckley, and one grandson, Robert Kehl.
        Mr. Wilson served a long and useful life in Virginia. After completing his education at Illinois College in Jacksonville, where he was a roommate of William Jennings Bryan, he started his career as a teacher in the public schools of Cass County. For many years he operated a fruit farm north of this city and he had engaged in at least a half dozen different lines of business on the public square, remaining active until his last illness.
        He united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church of this city sixty five years ago. Perhaps the public service of which he was most proud was the thirty-three years which he had served as member and secretary of the Board of Education of the Virginia high school.

Adam L. HAGEMAN was born February 26, 1857, on the farm which he now owns. Here he grew to manhood, and was educated. His father, Isaac Hageman, was born in Schuyler county, Pennsylvania, in 1809, of English and Scotch ancestry. His wife was Susanna Lischy, born in York county, Pennsylvania, in 1813, of German and Scotch ancestry.

                They were married in 1837 in Ohio, and removed to Illinois in 1839. They settled on the farm where their son now lives in Monroe precinct, Cass county, Illinois, where both died, the father in 1873 and the mother in 1883. They had eight children: Jesse, William, Emanuel, Noah, Miller, Adam, Amanda and Sarah. All the children except Jesse were born on the old homestead in Monroe precinct. He was born in Ohio. Mrs. Hageman was raised in the Lutheran faith, but after marriage she joined the Methodist Episcopal Church with her husband. Both were consistent members of that church at their death and were respected by all.

                Adam bought out the other heirs and now owns the old homestead. The farm comprises 422 1/2 acres of farming land well adapted to stock-raising. There are sixty acres of timber on the land. He has rented the farm for five years. Next year he purposes moving his family to Virginia to live in comfort and ease. He is a Republican in politics.

            He was married to Miss Lizzie Jockisch of Bluff Springs, Cass county, Illinois, born May 20, 1865, he being thirty years of age. Her parents were Charles T. and Eleanora (Carls) Jockisch, who were very early settlers of Bluff Springs. To Mr. and Mrs. Hageman have been born four children, three of whom are living: Mary Eleanora, Emma Madora, Effie Cornelia and a son who is yet unnamed. Effie C. is the one not living.

            Mrs. Hageman is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and both she and her husband are worthy people.
