Flowers left for George Taylor
Richland Beacon News, Saturday, October 22, 1938George Houston Taylor, 65, prominent citizen of near Start, died in a Monroe sanitarium on Thursday afternoon, October 13th, at 5 o'clock, and the funeral was held at the Start Methodist Church Saturday, October 15th, at 10:30a.m. with Rev. Midyet, pastor of the Start Methodist Church, officiating, assisted by Rev. H.G. Hammons, of the Start Baptist Church. Interment was made in the New Salem Cemetery, north of Girard.The pallbearers were Will Griffin, Jim Lyons, Dr. D.R. Hinton, Henry Cole, Archie Bennett, R.B. McGowen, Jr., and Ed Landers.The deceased is survived by his widow and the following sons and daughters: Henry, Lee, Walter and Freddie, of Start; William T., of Mangham; Herbert and Jesse, of Florida; and D.J. of Panama; Miss Nobie Taylor, who is a student at the Louisiana Tech at Ruston. He is also survived by eleven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.Mr. Taylor was born near Rayville and left an orphan in his infancy. In his early married life he moved to the Start community, where he has since resided. He engaged in farming and made a success of his vocation, being recognized as one of the most substantial citizens of the parish.While never aspiring to public office, he always took a patriotic interest in public affairs, and was recognized as a man of sincere opinion and devoted to honest purposes in life. He carried out every obligation he made to his fellowman with a devotion such as few men know. He was never false to any man or any trust. He was a devoted home man and a model citizen. Though firm in his decision, he was honest in his conviction; and those who differed with him always admired his courage and fidelity.Houston Taylor was just such a man as is considered the backbone of any community. Whether in civic work or church work he was always to be counted on to give the best service of which he was capable. No man will ever be more greatly missed in his community than this model citizen.His death brings sorrow to a wide circle of admiring friends who deeply sympathize with the bereaved family. The Beacon-News asks the privilege to be counted among those offering condolences.
