Lawyers Descibe Services of Early Prosecuting Attorney.
Eulogies of the public acts and legal attainments of the late George Nelson McConaha were delivered in the in the superior court this morning by many of the pioneer members of teh King County bar. The departed lawyer was one of the most prominent men in Washington in the earliest territorial days. In the early sixties he was one of the best known men in the territory, but an illness extending over thirty years and which finally caused his death withdrew him from active work in the legal profession. Among those who spoke in praiseworthy terms of the sterling charatcer and effective public serices of death were Judge Hanford, W. H. White, Roger S. Greene and Orange Jacobs.
The meeting of the bar association held to do honor to the departed lawyer was well attended. Resolutions giving a resume of his work and his legal successes were adopted by the association. A copy of the resolutions was inscribed upon the minutes of the court and a copy sent to Mr. McConaha's mother, Mrs. Ursula Wyckoff. (Seattle Daily Times, 02 Apr 1905)
