George W. Ainsworth

The Vermont Journal, March 8, 1902

George W. Ainsworth, of Montpelier, aged 76 years, died Wednesday morning. The funeral will be held Friday under charge of Brooks Post, No. 13, G.A.R. Mr. Ainsworth was a member of Co. I., 11th Vt., during the Civil War. He was a brother of Lucy Cook, otherwise known as "Sleeping Lucy," who was celebrated in Montpelier some years ago as a clairvoyant. In late years Mr. Ainsworth had many peculiar traits, one that he had at one time walked on water, and had photographs taken of himself in that position. He was one of the best known characters in the town. He was unmarried, and his nearest relative is a brother residing in California. He was a native of Calais.
