Levi George Dies At New Lisbon

New Lisbon---Levi George, well known and much esteemed resident of New Lisbon, passed away in his sleep, some time Wednesday night of a heart ailment. He was apparently in his usual health when he retired that night, but when he failed to respond to his wife's call that morning, she went to his room and found him dead.
Funeral services will be held from Sloans funeral parlor in Morris Sunday at 2. Dr. C. E. Vermilya, Greene, formerly of Morris, will officiate. Burial will be in Hillington cemetery, Morris.
He was born at New Lisbon March 1, 1884, the son of Samuel and Harriett (Smith) George. With the exception of a few years when the family resided at West Laurens, his entire life had been spent at New Lisbon. He married Miss May Southworth, New Lisbon, Sept. 34, 1901, and their married life was spent on a farm. He served the town of New Lisbon as highway superintendent for 12 years.
Surviving beside his wife are five sons, Leroy George, New Lisbon; Smith and Dr. E. Clark George, Garrattsville; Myron George, Burlington Flats; Sgt. Robert George, Langley field, Va.; and two daughters, Mrs. Harriett Robinson, Delhi; and Mrs. Martha Harrington, Mt. Vision; one half-sister, Mrs. Cora Hay; Connecticut; three grandchildren, Anita George, New Lisbon, Elaine Robinson, Delhi, and Deland George, Burlington Flats.
Not alone was his sudden death a great shock to the family but to the community. A kind and helpful friend and neighbor, he leaves many friends who regret his passing and extend their sincere sympathy to the family.
