In Memoriam--George Ferris, an old resident of Butler county, died at his home about three miles southwest of New Hartford, Feb. 13th, 1870, of pulmonary consumption, aged 48 years. Mr. F. was born in Broome county, N.Y., near Binghampton. He moved to Illinois where he lived for several years. He came to Iowa about 15 or 16 years ago, and settled on the farm he occupied up to the time of his death. He lost his wife 9 years ago, and was left with six children. His funeral sermon was preached last Monday in the new Christian church, in Fairfield township, Grundy county, by Elder Castle Churchill, and was attended by a very large concourse of people. Although Mr. F. had his failings in common with mankind, yet after an acquaintance of 8 years, we have to say we always found him an accommodating kind hearted neighbor. He was much esteemed as a citizen, and his loss will be felt by his family and the community in which he lived.
