MANARD*, G.W. : Died November 21, 1891
CIVIL WAR : CO. F. 10th Ill. INF
"G. W. Maynard, who lives in Shimer township, about 21 miles southeast of this city, died very suddenly last Saturday morning. Mr. Maynard had worked all week hauling and shoveling wheat from a threshing machine in his neighborhood. On Friday he complained of pains in his head but worked all day. On Saturday morning he arose but was taken violently sick, and a courier was sent to this city for a physician, but before the physician could get ready and get very far from town, another courier arrived stating that he was dead. He leaves a wife and eight children to mourn his loss. The remains were interred in the city cemetery east of town on Monday. The bursting of a blood vessel in the head is supposed to have been the cause of his death." - Obituary, The Western Star, 21 November 1921.
