Our citizens have been called upon to part with another of their number-- one who, by his genial and pleasant ways in social intercourse, and by honesty and integrity in business, had endeared himself to all who became intimately acquainted with him, and won the respect and confidence of the whole community. George W. Glazier, after a prolonged illness of several weeks, died at half-past five o'clock, Monday morning last, July 21, from the effects of congestive fever. The deceased was born on the 10th of April, 1828, in Berne township, Athens county, Ohio. The family afterward removed to Ames township, in the same county, where they lived for many years. His two brothers, William and Absalom, both younger than George, and his father, have preceded him to the grave. His mother, now nearly seventy years old and residing in this city, is alone left of the whole family, having buried her three boys and husband. On the 7th day of December 1855, Mr. Glazier arrived with his family and took up his residence in Savannah, engaging in the mercantile business in partnership with Mr. Eli Alderman. His mother followed him some time afterward. In June, 1871, the firm of Alderman & Glazier was dissolved, and Mr. Glazier began business alone in the store which he occupied at the time of his death. The deceased leaves a wife and four children (two of them by a former wife) inconsolable for the loss of a devoted husband and a kind and loving father-- Carrie, wife of S. B. Sanborn; John, a young man; and two boys, Frank and Charlie. The funeral took place from the Sixth Street Methodist Church, Rev. J. Gillies preaching the funeral sermon. A very large number of citizens were present and followed his remains to their last resting-place.
