Caldwell, George, Esq.

On the 31st of July George Caldwell, Esq., an esteemed citizen of Green township, in his 63d year ended his earthly life. For the last 16 years his health had been feeble--the last few weeks serious trouble of heart affection.

In his 25th year he was united in marriage with Miss Mary Jane Felconer. The fruit of their marriage union was eleven children--eight of which, with there mother, survive him.

In his 27th year he united in Christian fellowship with the M.E. Church at Otts, and through all these years maintained an honorable, conscientious, consistent, christian character, such that always commends relation and adorns the christians' life.

The suffrages of his neighbors and the many friends in his township called him to serve 12 years as Justice of the Peace--well and satisfactory did he serve the people in such relations.

In 1869 the enlarge suffrages of Monroe county called him to the onerously responsible office of Sheriff. The duties of this office were so well and faithfully preformed he was called to serve a second term.

Bro. Caldwell was a man of quiet, unassuming manners but a man among men- an honest man- a tried and trusted citizen-a friend of humanity-true in the creations of life- true to himself- true to his family- true to his God.
