IN MEMORIAM

William Webbert Wagner, son of Henry and Rachel Wagner, was born in the city of Dayton, November 19, 1851, and lived in this city during his lifetime. He died the evening of October 16, 1904, aged 52 years, 10 months and 27 days.

He married in this city Eleanor J. Kelley, December 8, 1885, with whom he lived happily nearly nineteen years and till death closed his early vision. To them were born two daughters, Eleanor and Rachel, both of whom survive him, and with their mother deeply mourn their loss of a loving husband and a fond father.

From his youth his habits were steady and his life upright. Having early acquired a fair education, he soon obtained good qualifications in bookkeeping and when quite a young man, was employed as the bookkeeper of a commercial enterprise at Yazoo, Miss., where he spent a few months. Soon after this he became bookkeeper in the United Brethren printing establishment of this city, where he remained several years, and so satisfactory were his services that it was a matter of much regret when he announced his purpose to retire from that position. His knowledge and experience in the establishment, together with his accuracy and integrity, were regarded as almost indispensable. But a suggestion of increased salary did not induce him to remain.

His financial ability began to manifest itself soon after in his personal affairs, and in connection with the Stoddard Manufacturing company of this city. In this company he was a stockholder from 1884, and he became a member of the board of directors in the year 1891, and was continued in the relation till his death. The board, at a recent meeting, paid a beautiful tribute to this character and to his usefulness in the company.

Mr. Wagner, from his youth up, was sober in mind, upright in life and moral in all his conduct. He was a believer in the Christian religion, and for many years an attendant of the Fourth Presbyterian church on this city, of which his wife was a devout communicant. A short time before his death he was baptised and received into the church and died in hope of immortality.

Mr. Wagner leaves behind him a sorrowing widow and two weeping daughters, who most of all are bereft. But he also leaves an aged father and mother, who outlive and mourn their elder son, the pride of their lives and the cheer of their declining years. He also leaves behind a brother and sister and their families, and many relatives, neighbors and friends. All feel as if his death had come too soon. But God does all things well. With Him we await the resurrection of the just, when all earthly sorrows will be swallowed up in eternal victory.

It is said by his daughter, who was in the store at the time, and by the customer, that he did not breathe or move after falling, death was instantaneous. The coroner was called, and after examination declared that he died from natural causes, heart disease.
