From HISTORY OF YUBA and SUTTER COUNTIES by Peter J. Delay, pg 258, Published 1924:

George Ohleyer was called by death on Saturday evening, August 15, 1896. In commenting upon his death, the editor of the Sutter County Farmer, formerly his paper, said:

"The sad news of the demise of George Ohleyer came as a distinct shock to his many friends, who were rejoicing that he was apparently recovering from the amputation of his leg, made on previous Thursday. A clot forming in the heart was the immediate cause of death. He was born in Alsace, France, in 1831. He came with his parents to the United States when two years of age into Wayne County, New York, whence the family removed to Ohio in 1835. It was in 1852 that Ohleyer came to California and engaged in mining a short time; then he worked on a farm in Solano County for two years, and returned to Ohio. In 1856 he came back to California and settled in Yuba County, where he lived until 1865, when he removed to Sutter County, remaining until death. He was married in 1855 to Miss Ellen Guthrie, of Ohio, who still survives him. There were left four sons and three daughters: George, Fred, Frank, Louis, Mrs. Anna Hausinger, Mrs. Mary Frick, and Miss Ada Ohleyer."

Funeral services were held at the Ohleyer home on August 18, at 1 p.m. Only a sheaf of wheat rested upon the casket, this at the request of his family. His remains are at rest in South Butte Cemetery, to which spot they were followed by one of the largest corteges in the history of Sutter County. At his grave, the beautiful titles of the Patron of Husbandry were read by the Worthy Manager of the State Grange, W. W. Greer. Those who acted as pall-bearers at the funeral service were: George W. Carpenter, Justus Greely, J. H. Kimball, L. P. Farmer, W. J. Gray, and T. B. Hull, all of whom have since joined him on the other shore.
