Mr. George E. C. Chance an old and highly respected citizen of this county died at the University hospital in Augusta Thursday the 8th after an illness of several months. His friends knew that he could not live long, but complications set in which hastened his death.
He was carried to the hospital in hopes that his life might be prolonged, but owing to the nature of his illness and his advanced age, nothing could be done to stay the ravages of disease and after several days of severe suffering death came to his relief.
He leaves a wife and six children; Mrs. B. F. Skinner, Mrs. Frank Jenkins, Mr. E. F. Chance , Mrs. W. V. Bell, Mrs. W. T. Bell, and Miss Sadie Chance, besides a number of other relatives and friends to mourn his death.
He was a Confederate Veteran and was seventy-four years old, all of which was spent in the neighborhood where he was born.
He was a good neighbor, a true citizen and a consistent church member and his memory is sweetly shone in the lives of those among whom he lived and for whom he labored and "To live in hearts we have behind is not to die."
