(Undated Newspaper clippings glued to back cover)
 
     George Blackerby, an old and much esteemed citizen, died at his residence, near Stanford, on
Tuesday, with pneumonia.  His remains were interred in the Buffalo Spring Cemetery, and followed
thither by a large number of his Granger friends, of which organization, he was an honored member. 
He was in Dix river seining on Saturday last, and did not exercise that care which he should have done. 
Thus it is "that in the midst of life we are in death."
