Quackenboss, George N. (MAR 1856 - 8 JAN 1913)
George N. Quackenboss slipped and fell twenty-six feet from a scaffold at the Northwestern railway ice houses in Clinton, Iowa, Monday afternoon, Jan. 6th, 1913, breaking both limbs, his left arm, and right collar bone, besides receiving internal injuries, which caused his death at Mercy hospital in that city, at 2:30 Wednesday morning, Jan. 8th, 1913.
George Quackenboss was one of the old settlers of Colby, coming here in the early part of the 70’s and continued to reside here until two years ago, when with his wife he moved to Clinton, Iowa to reside. He was an honorable, upright man, and has many friends here and in the neighboring towns who were pained to hear of his sad death, all of whom will deeply sympathize with the bereft widow.
We lack the necessary data for an obituary notice, but had he lived until next March he would have been 56 years of age. He was for many years a member of Colby Lodge No. 234, I.O.O.F., taking a withdrawal before removing from this city.
The remains were brought to Marshfield for interment, the funeral being held Friday afternoon, the Presbyterian pastor officiating. Odd Fellows of the Marshfield Lodge acted as pallbearers.
