OBITUARY - GEORGE W. HAWK.
George W. HAWK was born at McCartha, Vinton county, Ohio, January 11, 1836, and died at his home in Tingley, Iowa, March 14,
1926, aged 90 years, two months and three days. He moved when a young man from Ohio to Martinsburg, Keokuk county, Iowa.
He was united in marriage to Miss Eliza NUNN at Keokuk, Iowa, on November 19, 1860. To this union were born ten children, three having

After four years' residence at

where they both passed away.
Mr. HAWK united with the Church of Christ in Mount Ayr under the preaching of Elder MARTINDALE many

The funeral services were held at the Tingley Church of
Christ Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 by Rev. C. SHAW of Lenox, assisted by Rev. C. R. YOUNG, attended by a large number of our people
showing the regard for one of our oldest citizens. Interment was made in Rose Hill cemetery at Mount Ayr by the side of his wife. The
casket was opened at Mount Ayr that the friends there might take a farewell look.Card of Thanks.
We desire to thank the friends for many acts of kindness and words of comfort in our sorrow in the passing of our dear old father;
also for the lovely floral tributes, and to the choir for the music.--THE CHILDREN.
