George Hardenbrook

George Hardenbrook, who had run a farm six miles northwest of this place, and who was taken sick some two weeks ago with measles, which run into pneumonia, died Tuesday night at W. W. Cloyd’s place, where he was taken sick. The funeral was conducted at Mr. Cloyd’s home on Wednesday and the remains were interred in the J. H. Jackson cemetery. Mr. Hardenbrook was a hard working young man and while he had but few, if any, relatives living in this vicinity, he left a host of warm friends to mourn his demise.
