George Washington Coberly
Birth: Dec. 11, 1827
Delaware County
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 29, 1906
Crescent
Logan County
Oklahoma, USA

NOTE: George Washington signed his name "Coberley" on a letter written in his hand January 14, 1901 but because the grave marker is clearly "Coberly," I will use it to make it easier for searchers as the following generations seem to have dropped the "e."

Photo of George was provided by Thelma Coberly.

How soon the vapor flies
