George G. Beswick Passed Away Dec. 16
George G. Beswick, an old and highly respected citizen died at his home in Memphis, December 16, 1915 after an illness of ten days. He was born in Ohio 86 years ago, came to Iowa at the age of 21 and some years later moved to Missouri and had made his home in Memphis for a number of years.
He was married in 1859 to Miss Susan Racer who preceded him to the spirit world several years ago. He leaves two daughters, Mrs. Nellie Rice and Miss Grace, the third daughter Miss Laura having entered the heavenly life three months before her father. To those who knew him either by association or repute the name of George Beswick was its own best eulogy. He was one of those few persons whose word is literally as good as their bond. Not content with simple justice he showed much generosity and kindness in dealing with his fellowmen. He had immense energy and a powerful constitution but the sands of life ran low and his weary body lay down to its last rest.
Funeral services were held at the First M.E. church on Saturday, December 18 at 2 p.m. conducted by the pastor, Rev. E.B. Thompson.
