Death of George Seay

The death of George Seay, one of Idaho county's best and most favorably known men occurred at his residence near Winona, near the hour of ten, Monday evening.  The deceased had been suffering for the past several months from an abscess on the brain and while the best medical authority in the west had given up his case as practically hopeless, his relatives and friends were not willing to give up as long as there was life.  Mr. Seay, who was born in Arkansas and came west many years ago, is one of the large family of southerners who have taken up their home in Idaho and through their influence and industry assisted materially in the development of this section.  He has served the county in capacity of sheriff for several years and made a most excellent officer.  Since leaving the sheriff's office his time has been taken up in a farming and he has accumulated a goodly share of nature's endowment.  The funeral was held yesterday from the Baptist church, the local business houses closing out of respect to the deceased.  There were many who attended the funeral and paid their last respects to a good citizen and neighbor.  The remains were interred in the Prairieview cemetery.
