Wheaton J. Race
Greene, May 10 - Wheaton J. Race died in Oxford on Saturday afternoon, May 7, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. R. Gordon whom he was visiting. He had been ill for some time, but his death was a great shock to his many friends.
Mr. Race was one of the few remaining G. A. R. men of the Greene post, and will be greatly missed by his comrades in that organization. He was one of the village's most respected and oldest citizens, having past his 78th birthday.
He is survived by his wife, a brother, Devalson, two sons, Harvey of the state of Washington and Wilson of Syracuse and two daughters, Mrs. J. R. Gordon of Oxford and Mrs. Willard Salisbury of Greene.
The funeral was held from the late home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. Paul Monk officiating.
