George Mills, aged 25 years, was drowned in the Big Sioux river about eighteen miles from Sioux City the other afternoon. He started to walk across on the ice and broke through.

The body of George Mills who was drowned one week ago last Sunday in the Sioux river, had not been found up to Tuesday of this week. It is a cruel blow to the parents of the young man to lose him, but a still heavier loss to be denied the privilege of laying his remains to rest where nothing can molest them. Careful watch is being kept up with the hope “the waters will give up their dead.”

LeMars Sentinel, April 25, 1890

The body of George Mills, who was drowned in the Sioux river near Westfield several weeks ago was recovered last Sunday. It was about fifteen feet from where he went down.
