Death of George H. Powell

The death of George H. Powell, 59, former Hemlock resident, occurred at 6 o'clock last Thursday morning at his home, 197 Fitzhugh street, Rochester, after an illness of only a few hours. He suffered a heart attack on Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Powell was born in Rochester, the son of Albert and Jennie Karl Powell. On Sept. 14, 1911, he married Miss Lena Burch of Hemlock, the couple residing there for twenty-five years, during which time Mr. Powell was engaged in the coal business. They moved to Rochester about four years ago.
Funeral services were held at the home in Rochester at 2 p. m. Sunday, the Rev. Clifford Frost of Chili, the former pastor of the Hemlock Methodist church, officiating, assisted by Rev. John O. Mabuce, pastor of the Cornhill Methodist church, Rochester. Burial took place in Lakeview cemetery, Honeoye.
Mr. Powell is survived by his wife and one son, Burch, of Camp Kulem, Tex., Anti-Aircraft, Battery C; two sisters, Mrs. Ford Martin, of Pasadena, Calif., and Mrs. J. G. Shepard, of Houston, Tex.; and one brother, Albert, of Syracuse.
Mr. Powell had been a member of Livonia lodge, F. & A. M., since 1914, a member of the Hemlock I. O. O. F. for about thirty years, and a past grand noble of that organization. He was also a member of the Hemlock Methodist church, and a one time member of the Livonia Rotary club.
