The Martinsville Republican, 3 May 1877, page 4, Col. 2:
Obituary: Died, near Georgetown, Brown County, Ind. 18 April 1877, Mr. George Staples.
He was born in Newtown, Conn. September 20th, 1820, at which place he learned the spectacle trade, while a youth. He removed from there to Philadelphia, where he resided for seventeen years, following his occuption, at the end of which time he visited his sister in the above named county. While here he was induced to move and set up business at his present--bereaved home. This he carried on with such skill that he gained a wide-spread reputation as a workman, and drew trade from all parts of the country. Here he resided for thirteen years, when God called him from the labors and cares of life to that unchangeable home to which we are all fast hastening. He was a member of the Episcopal Church and was an exemplary man. I am told he was not excelled as a gentleman or citizen. He has many warm friends in this as well as in other counties.
A large audience attended his funeral services, who deeply sympathized with the family and relatives. He received the honors of a Masonic burial, in the little cemetery near Georgetown, where his remains can rest in peace until God shall bid them rise. He leaves a companion and several children to mourn their loss.--G. Heavenridge.
