George Thomas BARNES, the youngest son of George C. and Sarah Jane BARNES, was born at Indianola, Warren Co, Iowa, Jan 14, 1876 and passed
away at his home in Morrowville, Aug 27, 1942 at the age of 66 years, 7 months and 13 days.

With his parents he came to Kansas when he was 13
years old. They settled in Washington Co and he spent the remainder of their life here. On Feb 20, 1901, he was united in marriage to Miss Marie V. PAULI of the Morrowville vicinity, at the Baptist parsonage in

To this union seven children, five sons and two daughters were born. They are Verlin A.; Otho A.; Donald J.; Vera, now Mrs. Harold STANTON; Velma, now Mrs. Fred MATHY, all of Morrowville; Harold T., Haddam, KS. They with their mother, and Wayne W. of Augusta, KS all survive him. Also left to mourn his loss is one brother, John BARNES of Morrowville, eight grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.

His parents, two brothers and two sisters and one grandchild preceded him in death.

Mr. BARNES was a devoted husband and father and
needless to say will be missed by the entire community. He lived unselfishly, giving himself to others. He had a good word for everyone and a deep sense of appreciation for every kindness shown him.

One of Morrowville's best-loved citizens has left us. We will miss him but our loss is Heaven's gain. Funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon at the Morrowville Methodist church by the Rev. J. Holland
VERNON. Interment was made in the Morrowville cemetery.
