George Bennett, well remembered by many of our early residents, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Carl Beyer of Catawba, Wis., Sunday Jan. 12, 1919. The cause of his demise was heart disease.

George Bennett was born at North Hampton, England, April 10th, 1831, and came to this county in 1851 at the age of nineteen, living there for five or six years. In 1858 he drifted west and pulled up at the river town of Carver, Carver county where he became prominent and where he resided until his removal to Worcestor and was named postmaster, holding that position for 20 years. He was also town clerk for 17 years and always took an active interest in public affairs. It was while a resident of Carver county that he was married to Mary Colby Torrey in 1859. And to them eight children were born, three of whom survive him. There are Mrs. Carl Beyer of Catawba, Wis. with whom he made his home the past five years; Mrs Alice Van Sky, Minneapolis and Mrs. Fred Broders, Monroe, Wis. His son William was killed in a snow slide at Sandon B.C. on November 11, 1918, and this his family believe hastened his demise. Until two weeks previous to his death he had been a well and strong for his age and always enjoyed good health. He attained the ripe old age of 87 years, 9 months and two days. His wife passed away Nov. 30, 1901, and his son, Fred Bennett died Jan 12, 1890, at Minneapolis. The other three children died in infancy.

The senior editor of The Herald was well acquainted with Mr. Bennett in our early boyhood days, when he resided on a farm just outside the limits of the village of Carver. He settled there with the late L.H. Griffin and J.P. Torrey. He was elected County Auditor of Carver County and served as such during the stirring days of the Civil war, holding two terms, from January 1, 1861 to January 1, 1865, filling the position all during the trying and troublesome times of the great conflict for the preservation of the Union and the Indian uprising of 1862 and retired from office at his own volition. His brother, John Bennett officiated as his deputy. The editor has corresponded with him at intervals for many years and deeply regrets to learn of his demise. He was a noble man in the highest and truest sense of the word. Peace be to he ashes. His remains were laid to rest beside those of his wife in the cemetery at Worcestor, Wis., January 16th.
