Update: A. Max Wilson

While conducting a periodic check-back on old databases, I found an updated obituary for Emmett’s oldest sibling, Augustus Maxwell Wilson, who was called “Max.”

Source: Dated January 23, 1925 from the Dade City Banner.

The text from another obituary (from the Palatka, Florida Times-Herald for January 30, 1925) stated he had lived (past tense) in East Palatka, Florida, but at the time of his death had been living with his oldest son, A. Max Jr. in Lacoochee, Florida.

The Dade City Banner obituary provides details of Max’s funeral, and additional information on survivors. By 1925, only five of the original Wilson family siblings are alive (Frank Jr., Walker, Emmett’s twin Julian, Dora and Katie).

This obituary also confirms that Max was living separately from his wife Belle at this point. In another post, I’d mentioned that Belle wrote a family history, “Remember Who You Are Kin To,” published by her son
