Obituary of G. A. Lemert

George Alexander Lemert was born at Dresden, Ohio, May 13, 1836, and died at his home in Logan
township, this county, Tuesday, April 23, at four thirty o’clock a.m., at the age of 70 years, 11 months, 10 days. He was married to Margaret Thomas January 3, 1861. The deceased leaves a widow, one daughter, Mrs. May Wilkes of St. Louis, three half brothers and one half sister to survive him.

Captain Lemert enlisted in the Civil war in 1862 as lieutenant and soon rose to the office of captain of Rosecran’s staff and was afterwards promoted to topographical engineer. The deceased is a descendant of Lewis Cass, United States senator from Michigan and also United States ambassador to France during Polk’s administration. He moved to Pawnee county in the spring of 1878 and has resided here since.

Captain Lemert was quite popular in politics and was an ardent worker for any cause which he deemed right and just. Death came to him as a relief from years of suffering and while his thoughts clung to his home and loved ones yet he was willing to go, trusting the care of his wife and daughter to our Savior and Comforter.
The funeral services were conducted by the G.A.R. post at Lincoln church Thursday, April 25, and the remains were laid to rest in the Point View cemetery.
