She had been in failing health for several yrs, after suffering a fall. The dau. of George W. & Eliza Jane (Work) Ross, she m. George C. Wilson in 1898. She was active in the business affairs of the Wilson Chem. Co., & helped materially in assisting her late husb. in the founding & growth of the Wilson Chem. Co. here. She was vice-pres. of the Chem. Co., & also of the Rivoli & Cambria Theatres Corp. & treasurer of the Junior Food Products Co. For several yrs she was a trustee of the 1st Presby. church, Tyrone, & was a lifelong resident of the community. Burial will be at Grandview Cem., Tyrone.
George Cunningham Wilson Jr., vice president and assistant manager of the Wilson Chemical Company, Tyrone, Pa., is a native of this city and a son of George C. Wilson Sr.. Born in 1905, he attended the Tyrone Public Schools, the Hill School, of Pottstown, Pa. and The Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. from which he graduated with a baccalaureate degree in arts in 1927.
Returning to Tyrone at that time he became associated with his father as vice-president and assistant manager and has since continued in that capacity. The Wilson organization is composed of three companies operating under one head, they being as follows: The Wilson Chemical Company manufacturing and selling White Cloverine Salve; the Junior Food Products Company, incorporated in September, 1930, for the manufacture of gelatin; and the Wilson Products Company, incorporated at the same time for the manufacture of cough drops.
Mr. Wilson is a Thirty-second Degree Mason, a Democrat in politics, and a communicant of the Episcopal Church. He was married August 8, 1929 to Sarah Anderson, daughter of C. F. Anderson, of Altoona, Pa. and they have a son George C. Wilson III.
George became president of the Wilson Chemical Company in June of 1937 after the death of his father.
While attending a football game in Tyrone and seated with two of his sons, Charles and Michael, suffered a heart attack and died there before paramedics arrived from the field. Mr. Wilson had been ailing, but there was no indication of his being seriously ill before the attack.
[NI059504] Details of how to produce a soothing salve have been passed on to the 5th generation of a local family in Tyrone, PA. Carrying on the tradition of making the white petroleum jelly used in the "Cloverine Salve", are George C. Wilson III, his wife Helen (Honey) & their son Mark, great-great grandson of the ointment's originator. It all began in the 1860's when Dr. James Thompson Wilson, a prominent physician, made & dispensed the ointment to his patients. Since 1895 members of the Wilson family routinely have been melting down huge globs of white "petrolatum jelly" as the 1st step in the manufacture of the salve. In the back rooms of the business, the Wilson's continue to mix the secret formula & package the ointment with the same equipment used at the turn of the century. By 1904 the enterprise moved into a modest 2-story wood structure on Cloverine Terrace, a 400 acre tract near the RR station at the foot of Brush Mountain in this small town of Tyrone, PA, & 15 yrs later moved again into a 3-story stone structure near the old location. The salve was marketed through advertisements in comic books & an estimated 300,000 youngsters would sell the salve to gain "points" to be used to obtain prizes of their choice. The prizes range from live ponies, bikes, cameras, dinnerware, dolls, bb-guns, scooters, & even a rose-wood finish violin. (This writer is a recipient of a b-b-gun prize in the early 40's for selling the salve & is still in my possession & working condition now in 1997). When George C. Wilson III became pres. of the co. in 1951 at age 21, after an early & unexpected death of his father, he was probably the youngest corp. pres. in the US. He, his wife Honey & son Mark kept the declining business going with much difficulty with advertising laws & selling procedures. They relied more heavily on the side printing business now to sustain themselves after sales of the salve dropped & employees jobs were abolished. In the late 1960's & 70's dealt Cloverine a severe blow. In 1967 the Fed. Trade Comm. objected to the co.'s advertising methods, which attracted youthful salesmen. The ads had been changed by George III at that time to include the word "free" to describe the small gift sent with each order. The firm went to court, but lost the case & was restricted from any further advertising in newspapers, magazines & comic books. Cloverine was fined $75,000 & paid $30,000 in costs. In 1973 the crushing blows continued when the State acquired the stone structure by public domain law to build a hwy & a million dollar bridge for Route 220 now known as I-99. "This was a crushing blow to the co. & the community", Mr. Wilson said & began to down size & dismantle his business. Other products not mentioned manufactured by the Cloverine Co. was: Jack & Jill Jello, dental creams, cold creams, soap, talcum powder, liniment, rouge, face powder, cold & grip tablets, gelatin & even blood & kidney tea. The business was finally dissolved with the "secret formula" of the Cloverine Salve was sold to Alvin Last Co. of Dobbs Ferry, NY & distributed by Med-Tek from Cody, WY. George III was educated in the Tyrone Public Schools, an avid sports participant especially basketball. "Geece" went on to college but quit in his 1st yr to take over his father's business who d. suddenly and at an early age. George d. as a result of an automobile accident in the village of Bellmeade near Altoona, PA, when he struck a utility pole along the road. Witnesses claim that he slumped over the steering wheel just prior to the crash indicating a probable heart attack. They thought also he may have gone to sleep.

SOME OF THE EVENTS--IN SORT OF A TIMELINE----------1965--Ken's parents, Byron & Ethel Huff & Ken's brother, Rodney & wife Marilyn came to see us in Farmington, NM. Joel Zimmerschied was visiting there when they came. Ken took them fishing up on Valliceta Lake. Couldn't get the boat to plane with the 20 hp motor because of the elevation. 1966--Joe, Irene, Joel & Kenny Dean Zimmerschied moved from Colorado Springs, CO to CA. 1966--Ken, Donna, John, Bob, Don & Patricia Huff moved from Farmington, NM to Casper, WY.

We have lots of fun doing all kinds of activities. We love you, Mom!
[NI059865] John was b in Farmington, NM, Nov. 8, 1958. He's old. He went to school for a while. He now has this groovy Sound & Cellular bus. where he sells stereos and high tech cellular phones! He also rents cellular phones, which is the bulk of his business at this time. He sometimes goes to oil rigs to set up his phone stuff. He recently blew up his truck motor in Lusk while on his way to a rig. He also has a snowmobile that blew up last Sun. Then, he blew up his truck motor again two days ago. He said, "I was just driving along like I usually do, and something happened!!??!".
[NI059866] Bob is very smart. Bob lives in Fort Collins, CO with his wife Lisa. They are a cute couple. Bob always finds an answer to all of our technical problems. Robert Brian recently played guitar in a folk rock group called "Basmati". They had success, & an interesting slide show which accompanied the sound. Bob likes to play the guitar, & he does it better than most people I know. His wailing electric sound is interesting, & quite melodic.
[NI059867] Don was b Mar. 21, 1963. I think, maybe more recent than that. The people of Williston, ND were joyful when Don arrived because he was so happy & kind to everyone. Don is one of the nicest people you'll find. He is generous & can do anything that is physically possible. Don is going to the University of WY in Laramie. He is working on his Master's degree in Phys. Ed. He has been a substitute teacher for several yrs, & the kids love him. He is also a very popular person, wherever he goes someone knows him.

[NI059870] Mary Ellen worked for TransWorld Air in Indianapolis, IN when she was young. I think mostly in the office but did substitute for stewardesses on trips quite often. Mary Ellen & her mother Ethel took a trip to CA, including Catalina Island in the 1940's. After Mary Ellen m. Jack Pike they lived several places all over the world. They also lived in Rio for several yrs.
[NI059878] Lisa is a cute little artist. She is fun to have around & relates art to everyday surroudings. It's fun to go shopping with her because she always finds the coolest stuff!
[NI059880] Today is Apr. 26, 1997 - 1 day past my 54th b-day. As I come from a long line of procastinators, I am 1 day late for my b-day party. A day late & a dollar short, as the old adage goes. Not much to write about. I have worked for General Motors since Nov. 1961, & I'm still there. I guess I am now in the pre-retiremen mode. Not too many hobbies. Addicted to buying too many cars. In this light, cars must be my hobby. Along with motorcycles, although I havent owned one for yrs. About this time last yr, I worked in Atlanta, GA in an auto assembly plant. Helped retool the plant to build some kind of new mini-van. One of the highlights of the last few yrs. I do have a loving home companion by the name of "Sam". Don't get the wrong idea--Sam has four legs & barks. I brought Sam Huff home with me on Super Bowl Wkend of 1996. Had to have a famous sports name in the family, even though he is a bassett hound. Sam was preceded in death by "Charlie", a neutered male who was on his way home from visiting his playmate when he collided with a motorized vehicle in Jan. 1996. Changing the subject, I had a lawn mowing service for a number of yrs.
