Resolutions of Respect

The subject of this sketch, our beloved Brother, George Lindsey, was born Sept. 6th, 1887 in Navarro County, Texas, living here until 1915, when he moved to Bosque County, then he moved to Limestone County, where he lived until the end came. On the 24th day of March, 1918, he was married to Maudie Lankford. He joined the Missionary Baptist church at the age of 15 and he lived a faithful and devoted life.

He leaves a wife, father, mother and several sisters and a brother to mourn his loss. We would say to the bereaved, weep not, for we know that he has gone to rest.

All was done for him that his loving wife, mother, and father could do, but all in vain. God has called him and he was willing and ready to go. We request that a copy of this be sent to the Corsicana Light for publication.
