Wade Hampton Wishon was born in Henderson county, North Carolina November 17th, 1843. He served through the Civil War, enlisting at the age of 18 as a Union soldier. Was honorably discharged at the close of the war from the 6th Kansas Volunteer Cavalry. Shortly after the close of the war he came to Northwest Arkansas and homesteaded the farm surrounding the cemetery near Sedalia where he will be buried, having made his home there until 1912. Soon after the days of the Civil War he was united in marriage to Sarah Reynolds in Newton county, Arkansas and to this union was born one child, Mrs. Eliza Burks. The second time he was married to Louise Elizabeth McAfee; to this union was born eight children - four of which are still living: Thomas Wishon, Mrs. Eve Evans, Dora White and Willia Wishon. The third marriage was to Melzada Woodell; to this union was born seven children - three of which are living. Calvin Wishon, 011ie Wishon, Lonney Wishon. He is survived by 52 grandchildren and 25 greatgrandchildren. After the death of his third wife in 1904 he principally raised these children alone, taking the place of both father and mother. For the past ten years he had lived with some of his children. Early in life he joined the Christian church and has since lived an active Christian life. Many times he made the remark that he was ready to die. Uncle Hamp, as his friends called him, had been in failing health since last March. The end came Thursday, November 8th at 9:00 o'clock a.m. During the night preceding his death he suffered much and continually prayed for relief.
