Fultonville Man Ends His Life by Shooting Self With Shotgun; Poor Health Cause - George Washington Phillips, 75, Is Suicide Victim - Body Found in Smoke House in Rear of Home - Had Been a Fultonville Resident for Many Years - George Washington Phillips, aged 75, well-known resident of Fultonville, shot and instantly killed himself last night about 10 at his home at Washington and Franklin streets in Fultonville. Neighbors hearing the report of a gun summoned aid, but Phillips was dead when he was reached. He had shot himself in the head with a single barreled shot-gun. He was found sitting astride a chair in a smoke house in the rear of the home. Mr. Phillips had been in ill health for more than a year and that was ascribed as the reason for his act. Coroner O. Z. Bouton was called and he gave a verdict of suicide and ordered the body removed to the Welsh Funeral home to be prepared for burial. Funeral announcements are to be made later. Mr. Phillips was born in Gilbert Mills on November 8, 1859, the son of the late Clarence Phillips and Isabelle Chaten Phillips. He had been a resident of Fultonville for about 20 years and had lived in the same house for the last 15. He formerly was employed as a machinist in the Mohawk Silk Mills and also at the Gordon-Reyer mills. When a young man he attended MacGill college in Canada. In addition to his wife, Mrs. Cora Fonda Phillips, he is survived by two brothers, Charles of Long Beach, Cal., and John of Oswego, and several nephews. Gloversville NY Morning Herald, Monday, August 6, 1934.
