George Elliott Succumbs Suddenly at Garrattsville

New Lisbon, April 27---George Elliott, one of the best known and highly esteemed residents of this vicinity, suddenly passed away at his home in Garrattsville about 8:30 o'clock last evening. He had been in his usual health during the day. It had been his custom to go to the barn before retiring. When he failed to return as usual, his sister, thinking that he had gone to the store across the street, telephoned, and found that he was not there.
With her brother, she went to the barn and found the lifeless form lying face downward on the floor. Dr. B. F. Bishop, who resides across the street, was called, but found life extinct.
Mr. Elliott was the youngest son of William and Isabel (Hall) Elliott. He was born January11, 1873, on the Elliott homestead, about three miles from Garrattsville. The family always resided there until two years ago, when they sold the farm and moved to Garrattsville.
The deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church, a man of fine attainments, and always kindly disposed. His endearing qualities made many friends for him. He was never married.
Surviving are one brother, Thomas, and a sister, Miss Dorothy Elliott, both residing at the family home; two nephews, Dr. William Elliott of New Berlin, and Ned Elliott of New Lisbon.
Funeral services will be held at the family home Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. E. E. Hutchinson, pastor of the Episcopal church at Morris, will officiate. Burial will be in the Butternut Valley cemetery.
