George, "Uncle Bob"

ANOTHER OLD SOLDIER HAS BEEN CALLED AWAY Dear "Uncle Bob" George has been called away. He was the oldest living member of the George family living. He was born July 4th, 1847, and died at his home near Centerville on January 10th, 1933, being at the time of his death 85 years, seven months and six days of age. Mr. George enlisted as a volunteer in the Union Army on the 20th day of January 1864, to serve three years or until the war was ended. He received an honorable discharge on the 22nd day of May, 1865. "Uncle Bob" was first married to Miss Sara Greenwood about 1870. Three children blessed this union, two boys and one girl. Mrs. George died about 1876. He was married the second time to Miss Nancy Sloan about 1877. Thirteen children blessed this union, nine girls and four boys. "Aunt Nancy" and an infant died in 1901. "Uncle Bob" was married the third time to Mrs. Ella Meeks in 1903. Five children blessed this union, four boys and one girl.

"Uncle Bob was the father of 21 children, seven of whom preceded him in death. Fourteen children are yet living, and 12 of them were at the funeral. He leaves to mourn his death, besides his children, a wife who has been faithful to him for 30 years. We realize a vacant place that no one can fill has been left in the home.

We feel that the large crowd assembled at the funeral was evidence of affection to "Uncle Bob" and his children. "Uncle Bob" obeyed the Gospel about 1870 and became a member of the Church of Christ. May the Lord bless and comfort his dear wife and children, that they may trust the Lord and make preparation for a better world in a better place than this.

The poem selected expresses our faith in a life beyond the veil. "Near a shady wall a rose once grew, Budded and blossomed in God's free light, Watered and fed by morning dew, Shedding its sweetness day and night. As it grew and blossomed, fair and tall, Slowly rising to loftier heights, It came to a crevice in the wall Through which shone brightly a beam of light. Onward it crept with added strength, With never a thought of fear or pride, It followed the light through the crevice length And unfolded itself on the other side. The light, the dew, the broadening view, Were found again as they were before; And it lost itself in the beautiful new, Breathing its fragrance more and more. Small claim of death cause us to grieve, And make our courage faint or fall Nay, let us faith and hope receive - The rose still grows beyond the wall, Scattering fragrance far and wide, Just as it did in days of yore, Just as it did on the other side, Just as it will forever more. " B. A. George (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Submitted by: Mary Fowler Leek, Newspaper: Post-Dispatch, Dardanelle, Arkansas, 1/19/1933)
