    Died 1 Jul 1906  Karthaus, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • cause of death: chronic Bright's Disease
    • from the Jul 13, 1906 issue of the Clearfield Republican:
      George Rees died at his home near Karthaus, Sunday, July 1, 1906, aged about 71 years.

      Mr. Reese was born in England December 1835, and came to this country in 1863. He returned soon after to his native land, but in 1880 he came back to this country and located in Karthaus, where he bought property and entered into coal business in company with others and operated the Horse Shoe mine up the river from Karthaus.

      He was married to Anna Llewellian in 1853, and to this union were born ten children, five boys and five girls. Five of them are living. John, Samuel, Mrs. Maria Barnes, Ms. Sarah Guilliford and Mrs. Mary Finkins.


      Mr. Rees was a thrifty business man, industrious, economical and thus he was enabled to accumulate something for his children. He was a good citizen and neighbor. He united with the church when a boy in his native country, but moving from place to place he lost his membership, and in 1884 he united with the Baptist church in Karthaus where he remained in good standing until the time of his death. He had been afflicted a long time, but bore his affliction submissively to the end.

      The funeral services were conducted by Rev. IP Hawkins in the Lutheran Church, Keewaydin cemetery, by the side of his wife who preceded him about two years and six months.
