Charles F. George Takes Own Life
C.F. George, dairyman, who lived in the Missouri Flat district, shot himself in the head with a 22 rifle at his home last Friday at about the noon hour, and died at St. Elizabeth hospital in Baker about three hours later. Mr. George had been in poor health for some time suffering from a nervous breakdown and it is supposed this was the cause of the act. He was found by his wife and son Richard who returned from a trip to Haines. It is thought he had been shot about an hour when found. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
Mr. George was about 50 years old.
He is survived by his widow and three sons, Richard, Omar and Roland, a daughter Odessa, a sister Mrs. John Richmond of California, and two brothers, David George of Baker and Robert George of Pocahontas.
Funeral services were held from the Baptist church in Haines Monday afternoon, and burial was in the Haines cemetery. Rev. E.P. Waltz conducted the services.
