Thursday, 25 Jan 1906, Spirit of Democracy, Woodsfield . . . . . 


"On Jan. 13, 1906, just as the sun was settling, it was announced that he life of George Denbow had gone out, he lived a short time after he became afflicted. The news came as a thunderbolt from the clear sky. The physician claims his death was caused from a stroke of paralysis. He was born in Carroll County, Ohio, August 8, 1835, his age was 70 years, 5 months and 5 days. He enlisted in Capt. Brook's Company D, 27th O. V. I. He was a good soldier and remained in the front until the close of the war; during which time he never flinched from duty and thus displayed a loyalty to home and country that is beyond our province to question. And so it was in everything he undertook, whatever came he responded. Whenever friends needed his assistance, his action was of that decisive kind that impresses one with it genuineness. And now that he has passed to his reward, may we not believe that gentle mannerism in which he was taken is only evidence of God's approbation and as time goes one and we shall have occasion to reflect upon his life may we even be ready to think and ponder the noble virtures of his life, believing in God our Father and Christ our Savior, that we shall grasp glad hands with him in a world when all imperfections cease, all sorrows fall and where we shall live eternally in heaven.
George Denbow was buried in the Braken Cemetery on Monday in the afternoon of January 15, 1906. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Neeley of Summerfield, Ohio. His remains were laid to rest by his comrades of the Jas. P. Mann Post No. 267 Dept. of Ohio of the Grand Army of the Republic and the Sons of Veterans. The bereaved family and brothers have the heart felt sympathy of their many friends."
