      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, February 16, 1888 Sandy Creek News - Sandy Creek, New York - George B. Carpenter - Last Sunday night, the 12th instant, Dr. George B. Carpenter died at the residence of his uncle, Mr. Esek Stewart, on the Ridge road. For several weeks past it has been very evident to all that Dr. Carpenter was not likely to remain with us long. Still, we are sure that the news of his death must have caused a shock to many of those who knew him. Dr. Carpenter was a native of Sandy Creek and was the son of W. Eastman and Abbie (Stewart) Carpenter. He was born on the 9th of December, 1858, and so at the time of his death he was in his twenty ninth year. He was brought up in this neighborhood and was taught in our schools. He graduated from our High school in 1881, after which he was with Dr. Crockett for a while. He also taught in several places; among them, in Mannsville. In 1884 he entered the Medical college of the University of New York, from which he graduated in 1885. After that he began practice in his profession, having his office in Lacona. In a short time a great deal of business came to him, and it seemed as if he was likely to prosper. Then came his illness. For the last year he has been gradually failing. At one time his friends hoped that his life might be prolonged; but he himself did not share in their hopes. He knew early that his disease which was consumption, would carry him off sooner or later. For a while during last fall, he remained with his uncle near Pulaski; for the past few weeks he has been with Mr. Esek Stewart. His relatives and friends did what they could for him. They have the satisfaction of knowing that they ministered to his comfort to the best of their ability. Dr. Carpenter was a special favorite with those who knew him well. He was not an effusive man. He was somewhat reserved in his manner, naturally so; but with those with whom he was intimate he was a valued companion. His judgement was good and he was eminently conscientious of his actions. He had worked hard to acquire an education and to prepare himself for his chosen profession and had his life been spared we have no doubt that he would have succeeded. His very steadfastness and fidelity would have helped him in any community. His funeral took place Tuesday morning. Rev. J. K. Griffith conducted the services at Mr. Stewart's house and at the grave, the bearers being from his fellow student in our High school, Messrs, F. E. Smith, Udelie Bartlett, Fred Delong and Melvin Herriman. The large concourse present on the occasion may be regarded as evidence of the sincere regard in which Dr. Carpenter was held and of the sorrow which is generally felt because of his demise.
