Carr, George T. (27 JUL 1848 - 14 JAN 1929)

George T. Carr was born in the village of Cato, Cayuga Co., N.Y., July 27, 1848, and died at his home in this city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.), Monday, Jan. 14, 1929, at the age of 80 years, and 5 months. He was one of four children born to George H. Carr and Martha Chamberlain Carr. His childhood was spent at Cato and when a youth moved to New Auburn, N.Y.

When a young man he worked as an assistant to his father, who was a surveyor in that section, later entering the employ of the Lehigh Railroad Co., becoming a fireman. This work he continued until he became an engineer, and in his twenty-five years of railroading he was employed in Texas, Minnesota and Wisconsin. At one time he followed mining in the state of Washington, making his home at Spokane for about fifteen years.

He was married to Genevieve Hawthorne, a widow, with one son, Arthur, and they came to Owen, Clark County, Wis. about fifteen years ago, where he resided until his death. His first wife died about thirteen years ago and his son has also departed this life.

In 1921 he was married to Mrs. Effa Patchin, who survives him. Funeral services were conducted from the home Saturday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. W. P. Powell of the Congregational Church, officiating, and interment was made in Riverside Cemetery.

Mr. Carr owned and operated a variety store in the city for the past fifteen years and was one of the successful merchants, making friends with those who patronized his place of business. He will be missed by his business associates and friends.
