NEAL, A. G. "Galley" -Newspaper Clipping

NEAL, George W. DIED VERY SUDDENLY - George W. Neal, age fifty-three, a well-known citizen, died suddenly at his home, 1837 Third avenue, just before noon today. Apoplexy was the cause assigned by physicians who reached Mr. Neal's side within a few moments after his demise. Mr. Neal had been complaining for a day or two and when he went to his home at about 11:40 o'clock this morning he stated that he was feeling ill and was going up stairs to lie down. He did so, and when dinner was prepared a few moments later, his son-in-law, W. A. Gilmore, went to his bedside to awaken him. Mr. Neal seemed to be in a deep sleep; after speaking to him once or twice Mr. Gilmore put his hand on him and found to his horrow that he was dead. With all possible dispatch physicians were summoned but the man was past the need of their services. He had been dead for at least fifteen minutes when found. Mr. Neal was born in Gallia county, Ohio, but has lived in Huntington for the past thirteen years. He was a shoemaker and had a shop on Twentieth street neat the corner of Fifth avenue. Many men and women knew him as Neal the shoemaker, and he was very popular with all of his acquaintances. He is survived by his wife and four children, Mrs. W. A. Gilmore, Miss Ottie Neal, George Neal and Frank Neal, all of this city. The date of his funeral has not been set but he will be buried in the Neal family grave-yard at Mercerville, O. -Huntington Advertiser, Saturday, August 8, 1908
