Obituary

George H. Annis

George H. Annis, who has been in failing health for some time, died Thursday at the home of his son, Alex Annis, on Park street. Having reached the age of 91 years last March his life has been slowly ebbing away since the first of May when he took his bed. He was the son of James and Miranda Annis but was brought up by Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Tenney in Albany until he was able to earn his own living. In 1863 he married Ellen E. Stiles and of this union were born a son, Alex, of this place and a daughter, Mrs. R.E. Willis, now deceased. Mr. Annis followed the occupation of a carpenter for many years but in later life became a farmer. For a time before coming to Barton he and Mrs. Annis made their home with their daughter but as she became unable to care for them they came to live with their son. Mrs. Annis' death preceded his by about a year.

The deceased was a member of the Baptist church, the Masonic order and a veteran of the Civil war, having served nine months as cook for the officers in Company I of the 15th Regiment of Volunteers.

Funeral serves were held at the church in Irasburg Sunday, the Rev. A.A. Mandigo officiating, assisted by Rev. Mr. King of Irasburg; burial was in the Irasburg cemetery. The Sons of Veterans conducted the service at the grave and American Legion firing squad performed military honors by their salute.

Surviving relatives other than his son are his grandson, Gerald Annis, and granddaughter, Mrs. Clyde Potter, both of this place, and seven great-grandchildren.
