McQueen, George Dallas – Obituary

The sad news of the death of Mr. George Dallas McQueen, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Demp Cutsinger, of near Chrisman, reached the city, Monday. The deceased had been in failing health for some time and went to the St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur, where on Sept. 28th a surgical operation for cancer of the stomach and other complications was performed. His condition was known to be serious and having recovered from the operation, he went to the home of his daughter where he remained until death.

George Dallas McQueen was born May 4, 1844, and was united in marriage to Miss Frances McQueen, January 4, 1872 [Bartholomew Co., IN]. To this union five children were born, four of whom have preceded him to the great beyond. His wife died some twenty-one years ago, but he never remarried. He made his home for a number of years with his daughter, the late Mrs. Sinclair Helm, near Murdock, and after her death in Feb. 1916, has made his home largely with Mrs. Cutsinger. He departed this life at the ripe old age of 74 years, 6 mos. and 28 days, Monday morning, Dec. 2nd . He leaves to mourn his demise, one daughter, Mrs. Mabel Cutsinger, three grandchildren, one great grandchild and a large circle of relatives and friends. The deceased and his wife removed to Douglas County from Indiana in 1872.
