Son of Jacob Wetle and Appolonia "Lena" Ohlegschlager Wetle. He is buried next to his parents in the Catholic Cemetery at The Dalles. The tombstone gives the name "Willie".

From: The Dalles Times Mountainer, Jan 27, 1894.
WETTLE--Died in this city, Jan 24th, Edward, son of Mr. & Mrs. Jacob Wettle, aged 8.

From: The Dalles Chronicle, Jan 24, 1894
Edward Wettle, the 8-year-old son of Jacob Wettle, died at 2 o'clock today from peritonitis, very suddenly.

The little fellow had been ill for only two days, his abdomen swelling, probably from the result of some internal injury, of which his parents did not know. They are almost distracted over the continued troubles which have followed their children for the past two years, but which heretofore have not resulted fatally. It is hoped that now they will have a cessation of these accidents, as they have already had more than their share.
