Dr. George Browning Crawford

Dr. George Crawford Reaches End of Life's Journey.

George Browning Crawford was born in Franklin, Ohio, June 3, 1839, and lived here until young manhood when he took up the study of medicine.  His first practice was at Centerville and from there he went to Dayton where for six years he was on the staff at the Insane Asylum.  He later practiced at Alpha and Lumberton and during the siege of small pox he rendered splendid service.  It was during this epidemic that his father lay on this death-bed and it was after a long search that the son was found fighting the plague in Northern Ohio.  He came to his father's bedside but arrived too late to render assistance as the patient had already entered into the stupor and never rallied to recognition of his son.

When the country called for volunteers in the sixties he enlisted and went on the Gunboat "Queen City," where he remained until that vessel was captured on the Red River by the rebels.  Toward the close of the war he was paroled and finally reached St. Louis almost naked and nearly starved.  At that point the Sanitary Commission furnished him with clothing and transportation  At the close of the war he went to Cairo, Ill., where he was honorably discharged.

On August 22 he died at Smithboro, Ill., aged 76 years.  The remains were brought to the home of his sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Gage in this city on Wednesday of last week and burial made in Woodhill Cemetery.
