Following is the text of Wilbert's obituary:

Wilbert Perry Falconberry was born in Greensburg, Indiana, November 26, 1871. At the age of 7 years he came with his parents and family to Ellis. Later the family homesteaded 6 miles northeast of town where Will grew to manhood.
  At the age of 23 years on July 21, 1895, he married Dot Wickham. Mr. Falconberry and his wife took up a homestead north of the Saline river where they have lived ever since. To there were born two daughters, Mary, Mrs. H. A. Ginthers of Ellis and Mabel.
  Mr. Falconberry was well known in this community and everybody spoke in the highest terms of respect of his manly qualities. He was a loving father and a great neighbor. A friend of those in need.
  Mr. Falconberry has been in poor health for several years but kept up until after his return home from Idaho last fall where he had gone to visit his brother whom he had not seen for over 30 years. About October 27 he took seriously ill and after every other means had been employed he went to the Ashbury hospital in Salina Kansas where he underwent an operation on Monday, January 22, from which he only temporarily rallied and passed away Thursday, January 25th, 1923.
  He is survived by his wife and two daughters, three sisters, Mrs. Maude Hinkle of Ellis, Mrs. Bert Wickham and Mrs. Inez Martin both of Zurich Kansas, and one brother, Rupert Falconberry of Myers Cove, Idaho.
A good man has fallen in defeat
His face set towards the Eternal
One who has walked and worked with us
Has been mustered out and entered into rest.
  Mr. Falconberry was a firm believer in the word of God and accepted it as the rule of his life. When nearing the end he told his family and friends that he knew that all was well with him and he commended them in the care and protection of Almightly God.
  Funeral services were held Sunday at 2 p.m. from the M. E. Church, conducted by Rev. C. W. Harper. A large number of relatives and friends attending. Interment was made in Mt. Hope cemetery.
