Old Settler of Clyde Township Passed Away in Morrison
Mrs. Jacob GEORGE, an old settler of Clyde Township, died at noon Monday at the home of her son in Morrison. She and her husband had started about four weeks ago to go to Cedar Rapids, Ia., to visit with a son and daughter and were stopping for a short time with the Morrison son. While there, Mrs. GEORGE was taken sick, and has grown steadily worse till death came. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock at Franklin Corners and the burial will be in the cemetery near.

Mrs. GEORGE was a good woman, and had been a member of the River Brethren church for a number of years. She was known all over the neighborhood where she had been living for a number of years, as a noble, true and faithful woman and one who would be a true friend to everybody. She leaves besides her husband, two sons and one daughter. All members of the stricken family have the sympathy of their friends at this time.

September 7, 1905
The funeral services of Mrs. Jacob GEORGE of Clyde were held in the Franklin Church and were in charge of Rev. Mr. TRIUMPH of Polo.

Sterling library – Cemetery Books list the following in ZOOK Cemetery:
Jacob GEORGE, May 23, 1835-March 3, 1903
Pricilla A. GEORGE, June 3, 1836-Aug. 28, 1905

(Note: Mrs. George’s obit says her husband is left behind to mourn her loss in 1905, but he is shown as dieing in March 1903. Did she re-marry? I checked the 1903 papers for his obit, but could not find one. It may have been just a small “blurb” in the news columns, and I may have missed it – but I read through it three times.)
