    PITTS, George Prewitt
    b: Sep 3 1869, Louisville, KY
    d: Jun 20 1936, Blairstown, Henry Co, MO
    bur: Rose Hill Cemetery, Latour, Johnson Co, MO
    arr: Wilkinson Funeral Home
    Well Known Blairstown Man Commits Suicide in Woodshed at His Home - George Prewitt Pitts, well known resident of Blairstown, was found dead by a neighbor Saturday afternoon in a little woodshed in the northeast corner of the yard at his home in Blairstown, where he lived alone. Dr. W. T. Jennings, county coroner, found Mr. Pitts lying on his back in the shed, a 38 caliber revolver lying near, as though it had dropped form his right hand to the floor. The single shot fired went through the heart. After viewing the scene, Dr. Jennings deemed no inquest necessary as it was apparent how he had come to his death. A note of farewell to his family was found on the kitchen table. He had been dead several hours when Dr. Jennings was called to the scene about 5 p.m. Saturday. George Prewitt Pitts was born September 3, 1869, at Louisville, Ky., son of John Pitts from Ireland and Mary Zilty Pitts of Kentucky. When a young man, he was baptized and joined the Baptist church, where he held his membership until death. He also belonged to the Odd Fellow Lodge several years. In 1892 he was married to Treshy E. Holman and ten children were in their family, six of whom are living. In 1912 his wife died, leaving seven children for him to rear. For the past 12 years he lived in Blairstown being along at the time of his death. Most of his life was spent as a railroader, but the past few years he was a farmer. He is survived by the following brothers and sisters: T. C. Pitts, Schell City; Rom and Arch Pitts, Peculiar; R. W. Pitts, Bolivar; Mrs. Rolla Box, Jerome, Idaho; Mrs. Florence Chandley, Boise, Idaho; and the following children: V. R. Pitts, Schell City; D. J. Pitts, Alexander, Ia.; Mrs. Meva Cooper, Grandview, Mo.; Mrs. Nellie Harbson, Mason City, Ia.; Clarence Pitts, Charles City, Ia.; Mrs. Lindsay Salmon, Clinton. There are also 21 grandchildren. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church at Blairstown at 2 p.m. Monday with interment at Rose Hill cemetery, eight miles north of Blairstown under the direction of Wilkinson Funeral service.
