Mrs. George was born in what is now known as Pringle Hill, above Summerhill, August 30, 1836, and spent practically all her life in Cambria County. She was married in 1852 to Nicholas S. George, a native of Summerhill, who died 12 years ago.

McKinzey, John L., and Homer C., all of South Fork. She was a sister of Philip Paul, of Pittsburg; Mrs. Lydia Pringle, of Wilmore, and Mrs. Christina Brown, of Cresson.

Mrs. George was one of the best known of South Fork's older residents. She had lived here for many years, and was one of the organizers of the United Evangelical Church of this place. The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, services to be conducted in the U. B. tabernacle by the Rev. F. E. Hetrick. Interment will be in the South Fork Cemetery.
