APRIL 3, 1896


George Sears died at Mt. Idaho on March 26, 1896, aged 66 years, a native of England, born April 3, 1890.  At an early age he ran away from home and followed the sea.  Later he learned the butcher trade in London and made several voyages to Australia in that capacity on some of the famous emigrant clipper ships.  He finally landed in California living there until he joined the stampede to the Idaho mines in 1862, first going to Elk City.  He subsequently butchered in Lewiston and Warrens for several years.  For the past ten years he has resided at Mt. Idaho and died poor, although at one time he was very well off in the possession of this world’s goods.  A better friend and more honest man never lived.  Peace to his ashes.
