Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 10, 1848
Chambers County
Alabama, USA
Death: Nov. 22, 1918
Terrell
Kaufman County
Texas, USA

5th of 7 children born to Pulaski Judge Trammell and wife Frances Elizabeth Cox. Her family moved to Texas about 1854.

Sigourney first married to Kenneth "Can Thigpen in August of 1865. They had one child- Frances Emily Thigpen. Can died suddenly in Apr 1886, and Sigourney married Captain Francis George, her sister Julia's widower. They were married until Francis died in 1912. At that time Sigourney went to live with her daughter Frances' family, and was with them until she died in 1918.

Her obituary in the Terrell paper reads:

Mrs F. M. George died this morning at 4 o'clock at her apartments at the asylum, where she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. G. F. Powell, death following a period of ill health lasting some months.

The funeral is announced to take place at Mrs. Powell's apartments in the morning at 10 o'clock. In charge of Rev. Warren T. Whiteside, pastor of the First Methodist church.

Mrs. George was a native of Alabama, born in Fredonia, February 10, 1848, being Miss Sigourney Trammell, her father being Judge Trammell, a member of a well known Southern family. At the age of five years her mother died, and with her father, the family moved to Texas, settling near Daingerfield, East Texas, remaining there for some time. She received the best advantage to an educational way to be had at that time. After her marriage to Captain F. M. George, the family came to Terrell residing here for over twenty years, her husband Captain George passing away here a number of years ago. A daughter, Mrs George F Powell survives her mother.

Mrs. George was a devoted Christian, for the greater part of her life an active church worker. In the Methodist church, which she joined a number of years ago, Mrs. George will be greatly missed, being active in all departments of the church. Among the patients at the asylum, she ministered in many ways and was greatly beloved by them. Numerous friends admired her for her gentle, womanly traits, her lofty Christian character and splendid ideals. Her influence was far reaching and of her it may be truly said that these who know her loved her best.
