March 4, 1831
Died on Pocatalico, after a long and painful ilness, Mr. George Comer, leaving a large and helpless family to lament his loss. In recording the deaths of two of our fellow citizens, we may add, that although they belonged to the humble walks of life, they were distinguished, where known, as honest and upright men, and are much regretted by those who knew their worth. (The previous paragragh announced the death of Mr. John Cramer, age 19.)
