Death of George W. Chamberlain
In response to a message, telling of the serious illness of their father, Mesdames A.C. Harmon (Lola Bell 'Lottie' married Arthur Calvan Harmon in 1899), Elizabeth Carr (married Benjamin B. Carr 1898, then William Blakely in 1910) and J. Eddy (Sonora Etta married Jason Henry Eddy in 1902) departed Tuesday morning for Sioux City to be at his bedside, but the same day word came to the effect that he had passed away. He had been visiting with his other two children, Mrs. F. Gill (Mattie Ellen married Jefferson Davis Gill, per one tree) and Elmer Chamberlain at Winnebago, Nebraska, and on last Friday he received a scratch with a pin and thought nothing of it for a while, but later it began to cause considerable pain and in time a doctor was called and it was found that blood poison had set in.
The doctor made several visits and finally decided to take the patient to the hospital at Sioux City, where he passed away on July 25, 1916, at the age of eighty-two years, six months and four days.
Mr. Chamberlain was among the oldest residents of Audubon county, coming here at an early date. He has continued to make Audubon county his home for the most of the time since and his host of friends here will regret to learn of his passing.
The body arrived here this morning and the funeral services will be held tomorrow from the M. E. church at 2: PM, conducted by Rev. J. H. Freedline.
