George W. Mumma
Veteran George W. Mumma died Monday, July 22, 1918 [sic] at his residence, which is also the residence of his son Charles A. and family, on the old Mumma farm on the road between Harrisonville and Laidig, at the advanced age of 86 years, 4 months and 6 days. After having risen from his bed on the morning of the day of his death, he complained of feeling tired, and said he believed he would go back to bed for a while. About 11 o'clock, a member of the family called him, and getting no reply, went to his bed and found that he had slept peacefully away. His death was the result of chronic, pulmonary trouble, from which he had suffered for several years.
The deceased was a son of Jacob and Sarah Mumma who removed to Licking Creek township from Franklin County more than eighty years ago, and settled on the farm which for three generations has been known as the "old Mumma place." George was one of a family of eleven children, only two of whom now survive, namely David R. P. Mumma, of Sixmile Run, Pa, and Mrs. Anna Hann, near Saluvia.
The deceased was married to Sarah Brechbill, who died about six years ago. To this union were born eight children, five of whom are living, namely, John J., of Laidig; Harry M., of Pleasant Ridge; James M. and William R., of Curwensville, Pa and Charles A. on the old home place. There are also 16 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.
Mr. Mumma saw service in the Civil War, he being a member of Company C., 82nd regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry.
The deceased was a quiet, obliging, industrious citizen - a good kind father and husband, and a friend to the church he espoused. The funeral was held on the Wednesday following, the services being conducted by Rev. John M. Diehl, of the Presbyterian Church, assisted by Rev. E. J. Croft, of the M. E. Church, and Rev. Henry Wolf, of the U. B. Church. Interment was made in the cemetery at the Greenhill Presbyterian church.
