Martha A. (Chambers) George 1859-1916

Died at her home on the Gasconade river, Mrs. Chas. George of heart failure Thursday night and was laid to rest in the Green Cemetery Saturday afternoon. She was a splendid woman and leaves seven sons, one daughter, and husband to mourn their loss. They telegraphed her son, Theodore in Oklahoma immediately and on account of a washout he never got here till Saturday night the train being 19 hours late.

Mrs. Martha George, wife of Charley George, died January 20th, 1916. Mrs. George was born in Wright county, Mo., Aug.11, 1858 and was 57 years, 4 months, and 9 days of age. She was married to Charley George in the year 1880. There were nine children born to this union, seven boys and two girls. One girl died in her childhood. Six boys and one girl were present at the funeral. The oldest boy failed to get home in time on account of the train being delayed.

Mrs. George was a good wife, mother, and neighbor and will be greatly missed by us all. We feel sad because she is gone from us, but while we weep and wonder she may be wrapped in garments of light, and warbling songs of celestial joy. She will return to us no more.

What family circle has remained unbroken- no empty chair- no cherished mementoes- no members transferred to the illimitable Beyond? Alas! We all have felt or seen its power.

We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family and pray that it may be an unbroken family in the glorious beyond.
