Geo. W. Burkett - The death of G. W. Burkett occurred at his home near the cemetery on Saturday, April 21, aged eighty-two years. His death follows that of his aged companion in life by a little more than three weeks and his children now mourn the death of both parents.
George Washington Burkett was born in Woodbary, Cannon County, Tennessee on October 4, 1834. His marriage to Lucinda N. Derryberry occurred on September 29, 1859, their wedded life covering a period of more than fifty-seven years. He came to this community in March 1870, where he lived a respected and industrious life. He was converted in early life and joined the Methodist church.
Of a family of ten children, six survive: Mrs. J. W. Skinner of Sunnyside, Wash.; James of Zeigler, Ill., and Mrs. Peter Gabler, Mrs. Ed. Wells, Walter and Oral Burkett all of this place.
Mr. Burkett was a veteran of the Confederate army in the Civil war, and at his funeral several of the pallbearers were members of the G. A. R. Funeral services were held at his home on Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. Quilliam of the Baptist church officiating.
