George M. Prickett Passes Away Sunday.  George M. Prickett, confined to his bed since early in April, 1938, with a lingering illness, passed away early Sunday morning, October 8, 1939.  At no time during his illness had there been any hope of his recovery.  Mr. Prickett was in his 84th year.  His thoughts were always concerned with the comfort of the family, wishing to spare them as much work and anxiety as possible.

Mr. Prickett, son of Charles and Adaline Holderman Prickett, was born in Morris, Illinois, on New Year’s Day, 1856.  There were six sisters and five brothers in the family.  Four sisters and two brothers survive him.

In 1882 he was united in marriage with Rebecca K. Marshall.  To this union one son and six daughters were born.  The son, Wilbur Marshall, and four daughters, Eunice, Maude, Georgia and Eleanor live in the town of La Grange; Mae, Mrs. Raymond E. Dixon, lives in Lexington, Virginia.  Lula Vera died in infancy.

There are two grandchildren, Mrs. Charles A. George of Lexington, Virginia and Robert B. Dixon of Washington, D.C.

In his early life George united with the Presbyterian Church in Nebraska and served as a deacon.  Later he transferred his membership to the Methodist church in Tomah.

Mr. Prickett taught school for a time, was a business man, and since coming to Wisconsin had been a farmer.  He served the community as town clerk for a number of years.

Funeral services were held in the home on Tuesday afternoon by the Rev. Bernard C. Herrick, officiating.  The body was laid to rest in the La Grange Cemetery.
