GAR Veteran

George Andrew, a highly respected citizen of Orrtanna, preferring to live alone in his own home in that town, died there on last Wednesday. He had near neighbors who saw him daily going about his work at house and feeding his chickens. When he was not seen on last Wednesday morning, his nearest neighbor Mr. Riegle (Riggeal) with Mr. Biesecker, went into the house and found Mr. Andrew lying peacefully in his bed but scarcely breathing. Dr. Glenn, of Fairfield, was sent for and reached him while he still lived and said he was suffering from a very severe stroke of paralysis and that death was inevitable. He was a soldier in the civil war and belonged to the G.A.R., Post of Fairfield and enjoyed the highest respect of every one tat knew him. The funeral was held Friday morning, Rev. E. W. Stonebraker conducting services in Reformed church at Fairfield with interment in Cemetery at that place. His wife, who was Sophia Mertz died about 15 years ago. He leaves seven children, four sons and two daughters; John, of Ohio; William, of McKnightstown; James, near Orrtanna; Calvin and Mrs. Lottie Little, of this place; Mrs. Mary Riffle of Littlestown and Mrs. Laura Walter, of Chambersburg.
