George S. Bourne

George S. Bourne Passed Away at Home After a Long Illness

George S. Bourne, one of the early settlers of Reno county, and an old soldier, died at his home south of the Reformatory at 10:35 o’clock last night after a long illness. Mr. Bourne was born at New Bedford, Mass., November 27, 1827. He served three years in the civil war. After the war he made his home in Louisville, Ky., where he met and married Mrs. Anna Wharton, who died a year ago.  Mr. Bourne came to Hutchinson with his family in 1887. He was well known during his active life, having served two terms as city clerk of Hutchinson in 1901 and 1902. He was also very active in church work and especially in state Sunday school work, as long as he was able to do so. Mr. Bourne leaves two sons, Day Bourne, of St. Paul, Minn., and Stanley Bourne, of Champaign, Ill. He also leaves three step-daughters, Anna, Lucy, and Emma Wharton, who have always made their home with him. An announcement in regard to the funeral services will be made later.
