OBITUARY ~ GEORGE W. DEAN

George W. Dean was born Feb, 25, 1839, in Crawford county, Penn. When seven years of age, his parents moved to Sandwich, Illinois. At the commencement of the Civil War he enlisted in the three-months service. He was discharged, and in 1862 he re-enlisted in the 105th Illinois, and marched with Sherman to the sea. At the close of the war he lived for one year on a farm in Ford Co.. Illinois. He then went into the hardware business at State Center, Iowa, until the winter of 1869, when he traded for land in Taylor county, Iowa. He was until his death a holder of considerable farm land in Grant Twp., this county.

On August 1st, 1869, he was married to Miss Addle J. Noble. To this union were born five sons:—Charlie of Mitchell, South Dakota; Fred of Chicago; Merle who died at the age of two years; Roy and Guy of Ellendale, North Dakota. The wife and mother died on April 24, of this year.

When nineteen years of age he was converted and united with the Methodist church at Asbury, Illinois. After locating on the farm, he organized a class of eight members, later known as the Greenwood Church. He always took an interest in the church, and was a liberal supporter of the cause.

He died at the family home in Clearfield, at 3:45 a. m. on the 2nd of May 1923, at the age of 84 years, 2 months and 7 day«, being ill but for a few hours.

The funeral services were held in the Clearfield Methodist church, on Friday afternoon, May 4th, at 2:00 o’clock, conducted by Rev. E. L. Fields of New Market assisted by Rev. Calkins of Clearfield and Rev. Brown of Conway. The surviving veterans of the Civil War and members of the W R C attended as a body. Interment was then had in Clearfield Cemetery.
