Goods Called for and Delivered
George W. Worley, one of the
oldest and best known residents of
Cass county, was called to his final re
ward on Thursday evening at the
home in Elmwood, following an ill

This splendid old gentleman, who
has for the past sixty-three years
been a resident of Cass county, was
one of the pioneers in the develop
ment of the community in which he
h-.d located and his long and useful
life has borne fruit in the splendid
lite that he leaves as a heritage to
his family and to the community
whrre he has labored.
George W. Worley was born No
vember 23. 1835. in Illinois, the fam-
ilv residinsr at that time where the
present city of Springfield is now
located, and there amid the scenes of
the early life on the frontier, this
sturdy American was reared to man
hood and at an early day came to
Iowa, where he remained for a short
time and in the year 1S57 he came to
Cr.s.-! county, Nebraska.
Mr. Worley, on locating here, en

of" the bride, Mr. and Mrs. James M

husband from his home, and in 1862
he enlisted in the Missouri state mi
litia and served for tivo years in
that organization. On being dis
charged from his first enlistment, Mr.
Woriey returned to Nebraska and
with the loving wifa removed to
Kansas v.iicre llisy located near Ot
tawa. ; ml wheje Mr. Worley once
more entered the service of the gov
ernment in tie I tit h Kansas cavalry
and rerved with them until the close
of the civil war.
After the war he was retained in
the government service for over a
year as a scout end assisted in prop
erly guarding the wagon trains going
west across the gold fields of Colo
rado and the far wet.
Iu the year IStJS, on securing his
release from the armed service of the
nsitio'i. Mr. Worley and his wife re
turned to Nebraska and resumed their
re: ide:jce in Cass county, engaging
in farming on the old home near this

and continued at this until
the approach of old age bade him de-s-ht
from his labors.
To bless the union of Mr. and
.Mrs. Worley six children were born,

Mrs. It. C. Oldham. Gihbsbery, Al

ley. of Lincoln, who is a member of
tl' state board of control.
The departed had been one of the
charter members of McConihie post,
G. A. R.. of Piattsmouth, but on re
n vi::g to Elmwood transferred to
Kenasaw post of that city. At the
time Mr. Worley joined Kenasaw
post it was one of the largest of
the county but today at the funeral
service of the departed veteran there
were present the last two members
of the post to honor the memory of
the departed brother.
The funeral services were held
this afternoon at 1::50 at the Metho
uist church in Elmwood, Mr. Wor
ley having been a lifelong member of
this faith. Rev. Sala, pastor of the
church, was in charge.
It had been the oft repeated wish
if this grand oH veteran that nis
last journey might be in the nature
of a military ceremony and accord
ingly the services wre conducted by
the American Legion post, of Elm
wood. An armed guard stood at at
tention at the casket as the resi
dents paid their last tributes to the
old friend and neighbor and the body
was escorted to the grave by a guard
of honor from the Legion post. The
wealth of beautiful floral tributes
were expressive of the feeling of
e:;teem in which Mr. Worley had
been held in the community in which
he bad long resided.
Of the departed there- was one i
characteristic that endeared him to
all who knew him and that was his
love of his fellow man and it "was
his dream to live until the dawning
spirit of Hie brotherhood of man
might bring to the troubled world
the- spirit of love and kindness that
would drive before it the selfishness
that has brought into the world suf
fering, want and woe.
