The Scio Tribune and Santiam News, Consolidate November 1, 1917
George Garland, who died at his home in Lebanon last week, was born near Providence on the old homestead in 1855. At four years of age he was left an orphan and was taken to raise by Mr. and Mrs. McKinney. When he was some years older, he started out to do for himself, though very young he succeeded in maintaining himself. At the age of 25 he was married to Miss Orpha Richardson, of Scio and has lived on a part of his father’s donation land claim until he moved to Lebanon, about one month ago, to take the rest of his life easy. His sickness was of but a few days duration. He had been troubled with asthma for a number of years and which was the probable cause of his death, though heart trouble was assigned as the immediate cause. He leaves a wife and 4 children to mourn his loss. The children are H. W. Garland and Mrs. Minnie Townsend of Portland, Virgil L. of Mill City and O.W. of the home place. All of the children attended the funeral which occurred at Providence at noon on October 25.
