Obituary of Jesse Whidden

Another Land Mark Gone 04 April 1918

Jesse Whidden, one of the oldest citizens of DeSoto, died Thursday afternoon at 3:30 p. m. in Arcadia. He was born in October, 1838, and had reached the age of 82 years. He had resided in DeSoto, Fla., continually since the close of the Civil War. He was a Confederate veteran, as well as having served as a soldier of the United States in the Seminole Indian War of 1856. He was a man who had the respect and esteem of the whole, and his demise is greatly regretted by his many friends. He leaves surviving him, five children, all but one living in DeSoto county. The funeral will be held at Joshua Creek church today at 9:30 a. m., and interment will be made at Joshua Creek cemetery. All are invited.
