Undertaker A. F. Lamb received a dispatch yesterday from San Diego, Cal., informing him that George S. Howard died Oct. 26 and the body had been sent East. Mr. Howard started the 13th inst. For National City, Cal., with the intention of remaining there for a rest of some duration, and rented his farm on Hebard hill to Frank A. Williams. The deceased was a native of Randolph, the son of Jeptha and Caroline (Hunt) Howard, and had reached the age of 69 years. Some four years ago he and his wife returned from a short sojourn in California and since her death he had felt a great desire to experience again the milder climate of that state. Mr. Howard left no children but is survived by a brother, Henry Howard, living on Hebard Hill, and two sisters, Mrs. Ruth Abbott of this village and Mrs. Jane Dutton of Greenfield, Mass.
