Reflections for Sergeant Alonzo M. Wilson

Sgt. Wilson,
On today, the 130th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the Union Army as a member of the 8th Iowa Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

What a great man Officer Wilson was. Obviously I couldn't have known him but have a remarkable respect for him. I know without a doubt that it was devastating for his expectant wife who gave birth the next day. A tragic accident occurred I'm sure the officer that dropped the 45 was also devastated. May God have given both families peace and strength to have endured through this long ago accident.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and fifteenth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

In Las Vegas, family history of this man was super! Henry Porter Wilson, his son, was a big stout man too. Magificent men in those days, a true genleman and a scholar.

It is neat to come and see him listed here and remembered. The child that was born the day after his death was my great grandmother Alonza Wilson Motley.
