MAY'S LANDING, N. J., Dec. 4.--The body of George W. Fay, a prominent druggist of this place, was buried in the Greenmount Cemetery, about two miles from Hammonton, yesterday. Mr. Fay died 16 days ago, but his three sisters, who are Spiritualists, would not consent to his burial, believing that he would return to life. The corpse still retained its lifelike appearance, the cheeks being as red as roses. Not for one moment during the past 16 days have the sisters left the corpse. They took turns in watching the lifeless form of their brother and have not doubted or lost faith in the spirits. Other Spiritualists of the place had long ago given up the idea that Fay was alive and were anxious for the burial to take place. [Passaic City Daily News (New Jersey), Thurs., 4 Dec 1890, pg. 3]
