George Payne died suddenly Thursday morning of heart disease at his home three miles southwest of the city. Having been unwell for some time, he lay in bed that morning while his wife was at work in the kitchen. Rev. D. S. Morris, a neighbor, called in about 10:45 o’clock and asked Mrs. Payne how Uncle George was. “A little better this morning I believe” was the reply. “Go in and see him”. Mr. Morris went into the bedroom where Mr. Payne lay and spoke to him. But there was no response and examination showed that he was dead and had been for at least half an hour. The deceased was 77 years old last February and for 21 yeas he had been a resident of Montgomery County. He came here from Butler County, Ohio, from whence emigrated so many of our best citizens and has always been held in high esteem by neighbors and friends. He leaves a wife and six children, three boys and three girls, all married. Frank Payne and Mrs. J. H. Ball live in Iowa, Willard lives on the homestead, Mrs. David Binford and Mrs. John Cowger, at Darlington, and John Payne at Prairietown. The deceased was a member of the United Brethren Church. The funeral will occur on Sunday at Mount Zion and will be conducted by Rev. A. M. Snyder. - transcribed by s :)
