Well Known Whiteland Man Was Stricken Late Sunday Afternoon
George DeMott, age 49, one of the best known residents of Whiteland died suddenly and unexpectedly late Sunday afternoon from heart trouble. Mr. DeMott was found dead at the Whiteland Hotel by friends who had left him asleep in a chair. No one was present at the time of the death. The body was examined by Dr. D.L. Phipps and was later taken to the home of his sister, Mrs. E.E. Boone where Mr. DeMott had made his home since last March.
Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon with the Rev. T.N. Hunt, former pastor of the Whiteland Presbyterian Church, conducting the service, assisted by the Rev. A.G.

His early life was spent on the farm and he was later united in marriage to Miss Forrest Sheek, who preceded him in death, passing away about two years ago. For seventeen years Mr. DeMott had been employed at the Atkins Saw Company in Indianapolis, but became incapacitated for his duties there about five years ago. Following the death of Mrs. DeMott he had continued to make his home in Indianapolis, returning to Whiteland in March.
