THE WESTERN STAR, 17 June 1910
Obituary of GEO. W. HERRON

At 6:45 o'clock this morning Geo. W. Herron passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Harrison Fisher, in this city. He had been in good health for one of his age until about six weeks ago when, apparently, his vitality began to fail. The end came peacefully, almost as one going to sleep. His age at the time of death was 84 years, 1 month and 19 days, having been born April 28, 1826. Baltimore, Md., was the place of his birth. When a small child he moved with his parents to Jennings-co.,
Ind. In 1853 he was united in marriage to Miss Matilda J. Long who, in 1877, preceeded him to the great beyond. Of this union ten children were born, six of whom survive, as follows: Mary C. Smith of Minneapolis, Minn., Frank M. and Joseph A. Herron of Paruna, Okla., Mrs. Elmira Robertson of Kalamazoo, Mich., V. Herron of Doxey, Okla., and Mrs. H. Fisher of this city. Mr. Herron had made his home for several years with Mr. and Mrs. Fisher.

Deceased was a man of unassuming manners and sterling qualities. He served for time in the Civil war and seen much of the history-making of this country during his long life. He was for many years a member of the M.E. church, but in later life was identified with the Duncard church.

The body was taken today to Harper-co., Okla., where it will be laid to rest in Willow Creek cemetery at 3 o'clock p.m. tomorrow.
