George W. Aiman, an old and well-known resident of Whitemarsh, died on Thursday, the 5th inst., at his residence, Valley Green, of general debility, in his 83d year.
The deceased was born in Frankford, Philadelphia, October 15, 1812. His father moved to Springfield the following year, where Mr. Aiman resided until 1840, when he moved to Woodsborough, Frederick county, Maryland, and engaged in farming and lime burning for about twenty years. On September 22, 1842, he was united in marriage to Miss Harriet J. Willhide, of Woodsborough, and had five children--three sons and two daughters. He returned from Maryland in 1860. Mrs. Aiman died about seven years ago, two daughters and a son also having preceded their father in death. Mr. Aiman is survived by two sons--Charles A., the well-known horse dealer, and James B., who is engaged in commercial business in Philadelphia.
The deceased was an active and ardent Democrat all his life, and took a deep and abiding interest in the politics of both state and nation. He was a noble specimen of truth and honor, a citizen that the whole community in which he moved could look up to with honor and respect. He was always a friend to the deserving needy, and was endowed alike with a discerning mind and a generous spirit. He was a successful business man and leaves a large and valuable estate. He was buried on Tuesday at St. Thomas' cemetery, Rev. M. Sheeleigh, D.D., officiating at the house and Rev. Samuel Snelling at the grave.
