Big Valley Gazette, Bieber, California 26 April 1906
Georgie Herrick died last night at 9 o'clock. The young man has been in critical condition for several months and his death was not unexpected. An Obituary notice will appear next week.
Wednesday evening April 25, 1906 peace came to the suffering and afflicted body of George Herrick, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Herrick, near Bieber. For more than a year the young man had been suffering form the disease of consumption, induced by measles and as everything possible was done to stay the disease, without avail, death came as a messenger of mercy to the sufferer.
George Herrick was born in this valley November 16, 1887, and was aged 19 years, 5 months and 9 days. A model young man, held in the esteem by all his acquaintances, his demise is mourned by all. The remains were laid to rest Friday in the Mountain View Cemetery, followed by mourning relatives and friends
