George Walker (1859)
Iron County Record, February 24, 1928
Geo. Walker Dies Suddenly
The people of Cedar City were shocked to hear of the sudden death of George Walker Saturday
evening at nine o'clock.
Two weeks ago he strained the muscles of his heart and ruptured the arteries. He was taken
to the hospital for a few days and was getting along so well he was removed to the Melling
home where he was cared for by his niece, and while getting ready to retire Saturday night,
he bent over to unlace his shoes and suddenly expired.
His niece, Mrs. Lamoreaux, had just returned home from her trip to California and had spent
two hours visiting and talking with Mr. Walker about the trip, and had just departed for
her home when the end came.
George Walker was born Dec. 26, 1859, in what is known as the Old Fort, this county. He
moved with his parents to Cedar City when he was 5 years of age. His father died when he
was comparatively a young man and he was the main support of a family of eight children
and his mother, to whom he was very devoted.
