The death of William Wall, which resulted from an illness of pneumonia at shortly before 8
o'clock last Friday evening, brought sincere regret to a wide circle of friends of this well
known and highly respected citizen. Mr. Wall died at his home 27 Oswego Street.
Born in Queens county, Ireland, January 29, 1848, the deceased was a son of the late Richard
and Mary (Carter) Wall. When he was about eighteen years of age he came with his parents to
this country and settled in Carterville, the settlement taking its name from his mother's
family. With the exception of four years in Manlius his active life had been spent in
Carterville and Hillsboro, for a great many years owning and operating a farm in the latter
section of this town. In 1916 his health failed and he retired from farm life. The next four
years they resided in Manlius, but then returned to Camden, Mrs. Wall's home town, having since
lived in the home they bought on Oswego Street. Mr. Wall was an Episcopalian, a very fine
gentleman, friend and neighbor, and will be greatly missed.
January 1, 1890 he was married to Miss Mary E. Price of Camden who survives. Besides his
wife he leaves one son, Charles William, and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Redmond of Bozeman,
Montana, and Miss Esther Wall of Three Forks, Montana, and several nieces and nephews:
Mrs. C. C. McBroom of Bozeman, Montana; Mrs. Luther LaRue, Cardwell, Montana; William J. Wall,
Manlius; Richard Wall, of Townsend, Montana; George E. Skerritt, of Bozeman, Montana; and Jay
Wall, of Cardwell, Montana.
The funeral was held 2 o'clock Tuesday at his home on Oswego Street. The Rev. John Woessner,
rector of the Episcopal church, officiated. Flowers were in profusion. He had a wide circle
of friends and acquaintances and the house was filled with mourners. The remains were buried
