Excerpts from the obituary of George D. Newcomer that was
printed in the Wauseon Republican, Friday, November 6, 1931,
Wauseon, Ohio.

[Some of the wording and punctuation is awkward but
was left unchanged. A few corrections were made in spelling.]

"Uncle George" Newcomer is dead. He was sometimes
referred to as the "Grand old pioneer who had come down
through the years to a ripe old age with all the joys, the
hopes and smiles of youth." Those who knew Mr. Newcomer
loved him, and to them he was truly, "Uncle George." He was
kind and generous and being such was happiest when he
was making others happy. No worthy cause appealed to him
for aid and went away unassisted. Few persons who have
who have been permitted to travel so far out into the sunset
of life, have gone along with so sweet, kind and jovial disposition
as Mr. Newcomer.

He has lived in Wauseon longer then any other citizen. He lived in
what is now Wauseon ten years before the town was founded.
----------------------------------------------------
[See notes on George's father, John Newcomer for the
account of the family's coming to the Wauseon, Ohio area.]
----------------------------------------------------

In all the changes that have come to make this the progressive,
highly intellectual and well developed country that it is, George
D. Newcomer contributed his full share.

Mr. Newcomer loved Masonary and gave hours in building up
the order. No night was to dark, no storm to severe, no roads
to muddy for him to attend a meeting of the Masonic order if
he felt his presence was needed.
 

Mr. Newcomer held the office of commissioner of this county
[Fulton Co., Ohio] for nearly seven years, and left a record of
honest, faithful service. But it was his service as trustee of
Clinton township of which he most frequently spoke and in which
he received to find most pleasure.

In the death of George D. Newcomer a good man has entered
his eternal rest. A faithful soldier in the Civil war has answered
the last call and Losure Post, Grand Army of the Republic, has lost
one of its most faithful and devoted members.

The following obituary of Mr. Newcomer was read at the funeral:

George D. Newcomer, son of John and Naomi Debolt Newcomer,
was born April 15, 1844 in Holmes County Ohio. When an infant
his parents moved to what was then the western part of Lucas, now
Fulton County. He was raised on a farm which is now part of
Wauseon and adopted farming as a profession. When quite young
he answered his country's call serving three years in the Civil War,
86-87-182 Reg. in O.V.I. ON Dec. 28, 1869 he married Miss
Clarissa Poorman who died leaving one son Frank, who passed
away in June 1923. On December 19, 1875, he married Miss
Malinda Mikesell and by this marriage one son and two daughters
were born. Mrs. Newcomer died in June 1903. He again married
Mrs. Lou (Robinson) Cornell in March 1905 and moved to Wauseon in his late home on Depot St.

Mr. Newcomer united with the Methodist Episcopal church of
Wauseon and has held his membership in that church until his
death.

"Uncle George" as he was known to all his friends was a kind,
generous and public spirited citizen, always ready to give his
time and financial aid to any good cause. He was commissioner
of Fulton County for several years. Was a very active member of
the G.A.R. always enjoying the gatherings of that body. He
belonged to the Masonic fraternity of Wauseon, The Defiance
Commandery and Toledo Consisitory.

He died November 3, 1931, aged 87 years, 6 months and 19
days, and leaves to mourn their loss three children, Mrs.
Ethel Lee and Guy Newcomer of Waldron, Mich., and Mrs.
Mary Tedrow living near Wauseon. He also leaves eleven
grand-children and nine great grand-children.

The funeral was held from his home on Depot Street, Thursday
afternoon, conducted by Defiance Commandery of which he
had been a member for nearly half a century, his Pastor, Rev.
F. W. McColm of the First Methodist Episcopal church officiating
and interment made in Wauseon cemetery.
