George W. Maguire Left Vast Estate
Estate Estimated at From a Quarter to a Third of a Million.
George W. Maguire, who died January 19, left a fortune variously estimated at from a quarter to a third of a million dollars.
This was revealed in the filing in county court yesterday of a petition for the administration of his estate by his son Beach Maguire, who was appointed administrator of the large fortune. The petition estimated the value of the personalty at $200,000 and this with the realty owned by George Maguire is expected to bring the estate beyond the third of a million mark.
Mr. Maguire's fortune was amassed since the war for following his return from the front he associated himself with Elisha Woodruff in the lumber business. The venture was a great financial success and formed the base of the fortune that will be distributed under the Illinois laws of descent among the widow and two children, Mrs. Howard D. Colman and Beach Maguire.
