I found the following newspaper clipping among my great-aunts papers. I have no family connection or further information. The date or name of the newspaper was not kept, but she lived in Van Zandt County, Texas.
I have also posted this on the Wilson Family and Van Zandt County Genforums.

Terrell, Texas, June 3 - The body of Archie Wilson, the first of the Terrell soldiers lost in the war, was buried here yesterday. A public funeral service was held, conducted by the Revs. F. W. Zook, pastor of the First Chrisitan Church, H. C. Bass, pastor of the First Baptist Church and W. T. Whitesides pastor of the First Methodist Church. Local returned soliders and sailors were pallbearers.
