George W. Birdsong, Died at his home on Opdyke avenue, in this city this
morning at 3 o'clock, George W. Birdsong aged 33 years. He was married in
December 1885, to Miss Rose Crosnoe, daughter of Joseph H. Crosnoe of
Elk Prairie township, which marriage resulted in the birth of one son who with
his bereaved wife survive him. He had been sick for some time and his death
came not unexpected. Mr. Birdsong had been a member of the Baptist church
for twelve years and was respected by all who knew him.
Funeral will take place from his late residence, No. 409 Opdyke avenue, tomorrow
morning at 7 o'clock with interment at Hickory Hill Cemetery in McClellan township
at 11o'clock. Friends of the family are invited to attend.
I have from family letters that he died on June 1, 1893.
