In Memoriam
Died – On Monday morning last, of lung fever, at his residence on Pipe Creek, George T. Barron, aged 56.

The late Mr. Barron came to Ottawa County from Michigan in June, 1870, in company with his wife and two daughters, the eldest of whom Mr. A.B. Ayers married, and Mr. James Tucker married the second daughter. He was remarkable for his mental and physical energy and activity, and possessed considerable ability to influence his fellow citizens in any cause of purpose he advocated. He had a good knowledge of the science of music, and possessed considerable vocal powers, his rendering of some of the old English ballads delighted his hearers and made him a great favorite with all who love music. By his great love of music and the pleasure he took in inculcating a knowledge of it amongst our people he stood in the first rank of those who consider music an important element in human happiness. He has been teaching a singing school at Grover and also at the stone school house in District No. 10 on Pipe Creek, the latter he taught so late as last Wednesday, when he complained of not being in good health. Since which his indisposition gradually increased, but not sufficient to induce the belief that his death was so near.

He has always taken an active interest in everything tending to the social and education advancement of the community. He was twice elected assessor for Concord township, and when he moved his residence on Pipe Creek he was elected assessor of Logan Township. He was well known throughout the county and his death will be much regretted by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.

The mortal remains of the last Mr. Barron were interred in the Lindsey cemetery on Tuesday last. The Rev. Horace Bushnell delivered the obsequies. Nearly forty vehicles were employed to convey the large concourse of volunteer attendants at the funeral, who where anxious to testify their repects to the memory of the deceased.
