Funeral services for George Seyller, 69 years old, for many years a well known farmer at Hampshire, were conducted from the home, 515 Laurel street, Elgin and from the Catholic churh at Hampshire.
He had been a patient at the Elgin hospital since May 16. A jury under Coroner H. J. Vierke reached a verdict of death due to "shock and internal injury received in a fall from the second story of the St. Joseph's hospital, the act committed while despondent over ill health."

Surviving him are four sons, Joseph, George and Clarence of Hampshire and Harry of Elgin; two daughters, Bertha and Alma of Elgin; two brothers, Louis and John of Burlington, and a sister Mrs. Helena Vogel of Stark Station.
