George W. DeSeelhorst, 91-year-old pioneer of Grundy county, was suddenly stricken at his home Thursday morning and died within a few minutes. His health, despite his age, had been fair up to the time of his death. He was born near Plattville, Wis., June 21, 1852, and came to Grundy county 71 years ago, when he and his brother, Lou, began farming four miles northwest of Grundy Center. He married Millie Brasted Jan. 31, 1884 at her home in New York, having met her while she taught school here. They farmed in Palermo township until 1928 when they moved to Grundy Center.
Surviving are his wife, one son Floyd of Grundy Center, and two daughters, Mrs. Wayne Morrison of Grundy Center and Mrs. Ernest Diehl of Ames, Ia., also one sister, Miss Carrie DeSeelhorst of Grundy Center. Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon at 2:30 from the Coffman Funeral home with Rev. Virgil Smith of the First Presbyterian church in charge. Burial will be in the Grundy Center cemetery.
