George G. Howarth
DIED.-- At his residence, one mile from Chambersburg, O., on Friday, February 11th, 1876, of consumption, after a long, protracted illness, Mr. George G. Howarth, son of George G. and Grace Howarth, aged 30 years, 3 months and 15 days.
He was a young man of more than ordinary mental and personal attraction.
He has passed away from the place which has known him so long and so pleasantly, and save in memory of those who loved him so dearly, will know him no more.
My pen lingers lovingly upon his name, and I would fain say something of him whose name is beyond the need of human praise, that would make his example more beautiful and endearing to the living, who loved him and knew him best.
He was kind, industrious and attentive to all his friends. During his sickness he was very patient, and when sorrow and ceaseless suffering fell upon him, the light from Heaven seemed to radiate his face, and with an Angel's patience, a child-like smile and an unfaltering faith, he passed over the valley of death to meet his friends who have passed on before.
He leaves a mother, three sisters and two brothers, who deeply mourn his loss.
Dearest George, thou has left us, And your loss we deeply feel, But it is God that hast bereft us; He can all our sorrows heal. M. C. G., Chambersburg, O.
