JOHN COLBY GEORGE -- John Colby George passed away at the home of his brother-in-law, George Cook, Wednesday of last week. Mr. George had been in feeble health for years, but had failed rapidly during the last two weeks. With assistance he attended the Decoration and Memorial services. These meant so much to him as he served three years in Co. K, from Vermont during the war.
Mr. George was born in Brown Hill Canada, and was 83 years old. In 1850 he was united in marriage to Miss Mahala Allbee of Derby. and moved to Holland where they resided ‘till her death. To them was born one daughter, Mrs. Frank Lord if Derby. Seventeen year ago last August Mr. George married Mrs. Olivia Hosmer, whose death occurred a year ago last winter.
The funeral for Mr. George took place Friday forenoon at the Baptist Church, Rev. Bancroft officiating, with burial in the Mea Hill cemetery at Holland beside his first wife. Mr George leaves a daughter, Mrs. Frank Lord, of Derby, and a sister in New Hampshire, and a number of more distant relatives. Mr. and Mrs Will. Reed, of this place, have seemed as own children, as Mr. Reed is a son of, and Mrs. Reed a step-daughter of Mrs. George's second wife. They have always had the welfare of Mr. George at heart.
The G.A.R. and W.R.C. members gave a floral pillow, Mr. and Mrs. Reed a pansy sickle, Mrs. N. C. Eastman, a wreath;Mrs. Smith and others gave cut flowers, showing that the departed friend was highly honored.
