Son of Ephriam Myshrall & Janet Amelia Little. Born 25 Jun 1898.

   

Killed at the WW I Battle of Chateau-Thierry, France where he was a soldier in the 103rd U.S. Infantry. The battle was fought on July 18, 1918 and was one of the first actions the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) under General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing. It was a battle in World War I as part of the Second Battle of the Marne, initially prompted by a German offensive launched on July 15 against the newest troops on the front, the AEF (American Expeditionary Force). On the morning of July 18, 1918, the French (some of them colonial) and American forces between Fontenoy and Chateau-Thierry launched a counter-assault under the overall direction of Allied general issime Ferdinand Foch against the German positions. This assault on a 40-kilometre (25 mi) wide front was the first for over a year. The American army played the larger role fighting for the regions around Soissons and Chateau-Thierry. The allied forces had managed to keep their plans a secret, and their attack at 4:45 a.m. took the Germans by surprise when the troops went "Over the Top" without a preparatory artillery bombardment, but instead followed closely behind a rolling barrage which began with great synchronized precision. Eventually, the two opposing assaults (lines) inter-penetrated and individual American units exercised initiative and continued carrying the battle to the enemy despite being nominally behind enemy lines.

Nearly Another Hunting Tragedy

Hugh Wilson, of York County, Shot Through Arm in Fusilade of Companions.

Harvey Station, NB, Nov 2 -- Hugh Wilson, of the Rear Settlement, had a very narrow escape from death yesterday afternoon while hunting big game in company with three other young men.  It seems that they located a deer which took refuse in a thick clump of woods near the Dead Brook.  The men attempted to surround the deer, which made a bolt for liberty, coming into sight of some of the hunters, who opened fire on it.  Mr Wilson happened to be in the line of fire and received a bullet through his arm near the shoulder.  Dr. Dougan who dressed the wound, states that the bone was not injured and expects that Mr Wilson will be around in a short time, but if the bullet had been three inches nearer to his body, it would have been fatal.
