    George Burdette Van Horn, son of Mr. and Mrs. P. S. and Mary Van Horn, was born at Welton, Iowa, on November 11, 1858, where most of his early life was spent.
    At an early period in his life he became affiliated with the Seventh Day Baptist Church, to which he remained a consistent and faithful member.
    On December 25, 1881, he was united in marriage to Mettie L. Pierce of Hartland, Minn., who preceded him in death ten years ago.
    To this union seven children came to bless the home, all living except one son who was taken in infancy.
    The living ones of his immediate family are Shirley of Matheson, Colo.; Erwin of Clinton, Okla.; Mrs. Lura Benner of Denver, Colo.; Mrs. Essie Kenyon, Jesse, and Nellie Van Horn of this community, all of which were with him during his short illness. Twelve grandchildren and a brother, W. L. Van Horn of Beloit, Kan., and an adopted sister, Nettie Van Horn of Garwin, Iowa, are left to mourn the loss of a patient, kind, and loving father, grandfather, and brother.
    He became ill on August 11, and entered the hospital August 16, where everything was done for his comfort, but in vain.
    He left us for his reward Sabbath day, August 22, at the age of 72 years, 9 months and 12 days.
    Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Mr. Buck, were held at the Seventh Day Baptist church Monday afternoon, August 24, at four thirty o'clock, and interment was in the Nortonville cemetery, just as the sun was sinking in the west. - Nortonville News.
