DEATHS

Obituary. Wilson R. SHORT, died at 2 o’clock p.m. June 11, 1883 at the Mineral Wells to which place he had temporarily moved with the hope of improving his health. He was born in Tennessee, Feb. 28, 1829 and came to Texas about 1854 or ’55 and lived awhile in Rockwall, moved to McKinney in 1858 and made this place his home until his death...... He served as Deputy Sheriff for several years during the trying times immediately following the close of the late war. He served two terms as an alderman of the city of McKinney.... After a long confinement to his bed, he passed away leaving a wife, four children and a number of friends to mourn his loss. Thus has passed from our midst a respected citizen and one of the few remaining, who participated in the struggles of the early history of our county and town. Peace to his memory.
