J. C. George -- John Colby George passed away at the home of his brother-in-law, George Cook, on Wednesday of last week. Mr. George has been in feeble health for years, but had failed rapidly the past two weeks.
With assistance he attended the Memorial and Decoration services. This meant a lot to him, as he served three years inCompany K from Vermont in the Civil War.
Mr George was born in Brown's Hill in 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, of Derby. Seventeen years ago last August Mr. George was married to Mrs. Olivia, whose death occurred last winter.
The funeral of Mr. George took place Friday forenoon at the Baptist church, Rev. Bancroft officiating, with the burial in the Mill Hill cemetery beside his first wife.
Mr. George leaves a daughter, Mrs. Frank Lord of Derby, and a sister in New Hampshire, and a number of distant relatives. Mr, and. Mrs Will Read, of this place, has seemed as their own children, as Mrs. Read is a step-daughter to Mrs. George's second wife. They have always had the welfare of Mrs . George at Heart.
The G.A.R. and W. R. C. members gave a floral pillow -- many flowers showing their departed friend was highly honored.
