George T. Flanders

Rutland Daily Herald & Globe, Oct. 15, 1883:

Dr. Geo. T. Flanders died Saturday at 6:40 p.m., aged 38. He was born at Washington, Vermont. He first commenced the study of medicine with Dr. Jones of Chelsea, Vt., in 1867, after which he attended the Homeopathic college in Philadelphia, graduating from that institution in 1870. He came to Rutland six years ago and took up the practice of medicine, and at the time of his death enjoyed a large and constantly growing business. He was apparently as well as usual Tuesday, but about 5 o'clock Wednesday morning he was seized with severe pains in the bowels, from a stoppage, which caused inflammation, the effects of which caused his death. Dr. Chas. A. Gale attended him during his last days and was assisted by Dr. Sparhawk, Burlington, Dr. Halsey, Middlebury, and Dr. Chas. Flanders, Pittsford, a brother of the deceased, a consultation having been held by these gentlemen to determine on some method for his relief, but without avail. He was a genial, pleasant, generous hearted man and his loss will be long and severely felt by all that knew him. The deceased leaves a wife and two children; also a father and mother, who reside in Tunbridge, Vermont.
