      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 13, 1909 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Port Ontario District - Yesterday while on the way to the lake for a family picnic, George W. Philbrick was stricken with paralysis and brought to the home of his sister, Mrs. Ralph Price, where he made his home and died at 4 o'clock. Dr. J. L. More was called to attend him but there seemed no help from the first which would improve his condition. He was about 65 years of age and has resided here for most of his life. He was a veteran of the Civil War and a member of J. B. Butler Post, G.A.R. He is survived the sister with whom he lived, two brothers, Willis and Newton, both of this village, and another sister Mrs. Mary Wheeler of Sandy Creek. The funeral will be at 10:30 Friday at the Price residence.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 20, 1909 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Our village was shocked, last Tuesday, to learn of the death of George W. Philbrick, who prior to the day of his death, was in usual health, and had started, Tuesday morning, for the lake, where a picnic with relatives and friends was to be held. While on route to the lake he suffered a shock and had to be brought to the home of his sister, Mrs. Ralph Price, where despite medical attendance he passed away at a little after 4 o'clock. The deceased was in his 64th year and had nearly always lived in this vicinity, except while in the Civil War where he had served three years in the 147th Regiment. George was a good natured man, always having a kind and pleasant word for others, and he will be missed. Last winter he experienced religion and he showed by his face and conduct that he had found something which was soul satisfying. Mr. Philbrick left to mourn his departure one daughter, Mrs. Watson, and two sons, Homer and Harry, besides two brothers, Willis C. and Newton A. Philbrick, and two sisters, Mrs. Mary A. Wheeler and Mrs. Ralph Price. The funeral services were held at the sister's home on Lake Avenue, Friday at 10:30 a.m. Pastor Ehle officiated, assisted by Rev. S. E. Brown. J. B. Butler Post attended in a body and held their ritualistic service at the house, members of the Post acting as bearers. There were many beautiful flowers sent by relatives and friends. Relatives from Traer, Iowa, and Camden, New York together with friends from Sandy Creek and Daysville, besides a good number from our village attended the funeral services. Burial was made in the Mexico Village cemetery.

      In Memorial - The officers and members of J. B. Butler Post No. 111, Dept. of New York, Grand Army of the Republic, have by orders of the Great Commander, been obliged to part with one more of their comrades who, on Oct. 12, 1909, was suddenly called to "the last camping ground". George W. Philbrick served in Company C, 147th Regiment, New York Infantry, was captured while in the line of duty and in foul prison pens suffered the tortures of hunger and thirst for many months. As a comrade of the G.A.R. he was faithful and regular in his attendance upon Post meetings and always ready to fill any place of position to which he was assigned to the best of his ability. We shall miss him and extend sympathy to his bereaved family.
