Mr. Wilson homesteaded north of Lusk in 1912 and lived in and around Lusk until 1938 when he moved his family to Casper. He is survived by his wife, Laura and seven children, Marvin Jr., Bill and Mrs. Rosemary Anderson, Casper; Mrs. Lois Adams and Nancy Wilson, Denver; Howard, Oklahoma City, Oka.; and Sister Lawrence of Rapid City.

Note: Although original cemetery records indicate that Marvin Wilson was born on September 26, 1890, the U.S. Headstone Application for Military Veterans filled out by his wife has September 25, 1890, which is therefore the date on his gravestone,
