March 1, 1907 Wray Rattler "For several months it has been known to his most intimate friends that the inevitable must happen and that Comrade Huddloson's earthly career was steadily coming to an end. On Monday, February 25th, 1907, at 2:45 p. m., the careworn spirit of Charles Huddleson, soldier, citizen, friend and neighbor, was released from his wasted, tired, pain-racked body and the cares of this earth and took its flight to the Great Beyond.
Mr. Huddleson's sufferings were very great from that terrible malady, cancer, which was aggravated, and his denth hastened, by tuberculosis, which had been developing for some years. He bore his sufferings like the true soldier he was, never murmuring, but patiently waiting for the orders of the Great Commander to come up higher.
His funeral, which was largely attended, was ably conducted by Elder A. E. Tabor at the L. D. S. church, Wray, Colorado, of which he was a consistent member, on February 28th, at 2 o'clock.
The choir rendered some choice selections and Elder Tabor an appropriate and interesting discourse. Mrs. Letitia Scott sang a beautiful solo, 'We Shall Know it All Some Day', after which the remains were borne to Grand View cemetery where they were laid to rest until the resurrection. The Grand Army of the Republic conducted the burial service which was timely and impressive.
Charles Huddleson was born May 10, 1839, and served through the Civil War and was honorably discharged at its close. A wife and five children are left to mourn his death, John and Everett, of Oregon, Mrs. Dora Willis, of Oxford, Nebraska, Mrs. Ida Root and Grover at home, besides a large circle of friends in Yuma county and elsewhere."
