Wilbur became a member of the Methodist Episcopal church when he was sixteen years old, and he has remained a member ever since. ...

    • Ironton Register, April 7, 1892 - Speaking of old times, Hon. W. W. Wiseman has a relic of his boyhood days. It is a slate which he has had for 55 years. It is the first and only one he ever had. He bought it when he went to school and, has done all his ciphering on it ever since; and Uncle Whit is a high stepper when it comes to ciphering. He is one of the best mathematicians in the county, and nothing so delights him as when he sits down to a knotty problem in arithmetic, unless it is a fox chase.
