Newspaper Clippings for
February, 1894

from Antioch News1 February 1894
We regret to learn that George Thayer, of Millburn, who has been very ill for the past two months, died at his home on Friday last. The disease, which appeared to have its origin in the brain, was treated by the best local medical talent and also by medical experts of Chicago, the latter giving it as their opinion that an operation would be necessary to save his life. Acting under the advice of the experts his friends consented to an operation being performed, which was made last Thursday, removing a part of the skull bone over the brain pan, when it was found according to the report, that the theory of the expert was not correct, he, prior to the operation, expressing an opinion that the trouble was caused by a ruptured blood vessel in the head, but upon examination this was found to be incorrect. Mr. Thayer never fully returned to consciousness after the operation and passed away about noon on Friday last. The News extends sympathy to the sorrowing friends.
