Although in poor health for many years, the sudden death of George Geary of Quincy, Monday, came as a shock to his relatives and many friends. Mr. Geary had not been complaining any more than usual and was about the place as usual Monday afternoon. He made the customary trip to the mail box and was found 1:30 in an unconscious condition in the shade of the grape arbor. Mr. Geary had suffered several heart attacks in the past and it is presumed that he suffered a sudden attack and sought the shade of the grape vines. He passed away shortly after being removed to the house.
