From Confederate Veteran Magazine:
Unit:1st Ark.Cav., 1st Lieutenant--Confederate Veteran Magazine:v.15,p.179- Text:DEATHS IN THE W. B. PLEMONS CAMP, AMARILLO, TEX.[Reports by committees on several deaths in the Camp.]- George Keenan Whitcomb, of W. B. Plemons Camp, answered to the "last roll" at his home, in Amarillo, Tex., August 23, 1906. He was born in Keenan, W. Va., March 29, 1834, and his parents moved to Union, W. Va., in his childhood. In 1854 he moved to Augusta, Ark. At the call of his country he was the first volunteer, joining the 1st Arkansas Cavalry. He was promoted through merit to first lieutenant, and served throughout the war. Returning to his home in 1865, he engaged in the furniture and undertaking business until 1890. He was married to Miss Cordelia Flynt, of Augusta, Ark., in 1866, and in 1867 united with the First Presbyterian Church of that city, serving many years as deacon. In 1890 he moved his family to Texas, and cast his lot with the then frontier town of Amarillo, and was one of the few who braved the trials and helped to make it the beautiful city it now is. Comrade Whitcomb was a faithful Church member and a devoted Christian, and for the past eight years had been a ruling elder of the First Presbyterian Church of Amarillo, Tex. He was also a Mason of long and high standing. He had been in feeble health for more than a year. He leaves a devoted wife and five children.
