An Old Citizen Dead

The death of George Hollenbeck occurred very suddenly at his home five miles south of Larned, at ten o’clock Saturday night, March 5th, 1892. Death was caused by a heart affection super induced by the grippe, and was a great surprise to his friends as he appeared to be in possession of his usual good health. He was born in Albany county, New York, fifty-four years ago, and in 1845 he removed to Lockton, Winnebago county, Illinois, where twenty years later he was married to Miss Harriet Gleason. In 1879 he came to this county and located at the present residence of the family five miles south of this city. A wife and three daughters: Ida, May and Ella, and also an aged mother, two brothers and a sister, Mrs. Mate Bell, of Rockford, Illinois, who arrived in this city in time to attend the funeral. The funeral occurred from the residence at one o’clock Tuesday under the direction of Larned lodge No. 167, A.F. & A.M. of which he was a member. Rev. E. N. Phillips, of the Christian church made a very touching address. The remains were taken to the cemetery at the Pratt school house for interment where there is a son buried. Mr. Hollenbeck was one of the oldest citizens of this county and while he was not a member of any religious denomination, he was a member of the Masonic order for a period of thirty-three years. Industrious and honest, he was well liked by all who knew him. In politics he was a republican, and in his death the party in this county has lost one of its staunchest supporters.
