At the time of his death, in 1911, the following story appeared in the Morgan Messenger, a weekly newspaper in Morgan County, West Virginia: "George W. Shockey died at Oldtown from a fractured skull and shock caused by a fall down the stairway at the home of his nephew, Rev. John A. Shockey pastor of the Oldtown Circuit of the Methodist Episcopal Church. "He was carrying an armful of wood when he tripped and fell to the bottom of the stairs. He was born in Shockeysville in Frederick County, Virginia, named for his family. "At one time he taught school. He devoted much time to peddling chinaware and other articles through the county. "When a child he lost a hand accidently when it was cut off by another child at play, with a hatchet. He was very deaf. "Mr. Shockey was a widower and left no children. "His remains were brought to Berkeley Springs by the Rev. John A. Shockey and then taken to his old home at Shockeysville for interment."
