Wilson, Ernest – Obituary

Ernest Wilson, of Celilo, Oregon, Shot Himself October 17th.

The Republican last week noticed briefly the death of Ernest Wilson, age 36, of Celilo. He was a brother of our citizen, B.F. Wilson, and was born in Cove. He leaves a wife and three children.

From Judge B.F. Wilson, who returned from Celilo Saturday, we learn that it was probably a case of suicide, though there was no apparent reason for such an act, the business and family affairs of Ernest Wilson being in harmonious and satisfactory condition.

The funeral took place Saturday at Celilo.

Ernest Wilson has been in charge of a fishing trap and packing house at Celilo.
