George Barnes, a veteran of the civil war, died at his home early last Wednesday morning after an illness of six weeks. The immediate cause of death was abscess in the bowels, although he had been troubled for some time past with fever and ague, a legacy of the war. His wife died several years ago. Funeral services will be conducted Friday morning at the house, attended by members of Erasmus Buck Post, G. A. R., of which order he was an earnest and consistent member. In his death two sons mourn the departure of a kind, thoughtful and indulgent father and the town loses an exemplary citizen. Deceased was in his 58th year.
