Obituaries - G. W. Morgan

Macomb Daily Journal - December 18, 1913

G. W. Morgan died last night at the county farm about 10 o'clock. He had been complaining of his trouble for about 2 months, but was only seriously ill for a couple of weeks. Death was due to ephritis, complicated with stomach trouble. His age was 74 years.

Deceased was born in Michigan. Prior to his entrance to the county farm he resided at Bardolph, where he worked industriously at common labor as long as he was able. He was made dependent on account of a crippled hand and foot.

As a man he was quiet and agreeable. He is survived by 2 sons, one of whom is thought to be located at Chicago and the other at Seville or Cuba, Illinois.

No arrangements for the funeral will be made until advice has been received from one of the sons.
