OBITUARIES

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.
