Death of a Civil War Army Nurse.

Mrs. Eunice Tiffany Wilson's Funeral Will Take Place To-day.

Mrs. Eunice Tiffany Wilson, who passed away Tuesday night, was a resident of Detroit city for upwards of half a century. She was a pensioned Civil war army nurse, and the widow of Lieut. Harry J. Wilson, a veteran officer of the Mexican war, to whom she was married in 1855, by the late Rt. Rev. Bishop McCoskry in this city. Mrs. Wilson passed away at the residence, 414 Second avenue, after a prolonged illness. She was a lady of intellectual refinement, artistic tastes, a careful reader of the higher class of literature, with a personality that drew to her a host of life long friends. Mrs. Wilson leaves no children or relatives save a niece, Mrs. John Walbridge, of Toledo. She will be buried by the side of her husband in Elmwood cemetery, services being held at the house this afternoon at 3 o'clock. Interment will be private.
