Well Known Resident Of Morristown Died
After Long illness Caused By
A Complication Of Diseases
          George W. Hinds, one of the most prominent residents of Hanover Township and Morristown, died at his home there Sunday evening at six-thirty o'clock.  Death was caused by a complication of diseases and resulted after a long illness.  His relatives were at his bedside when death occurred.
          Mr. Hinds was one of the pioneer residents of the county and was well known by many of the older residents. He had lived in Shelby county all of his life.
          Mr. Hinds was born in Addison township February 25, 1834, and at the time of his death was aged eighty years, five months and two days.  He worked on a farm from early youth.  During the winter he attended school, which was held in an old log building near his home.  At fifteen he started out to make his living.  He worked on a farm for 50 cents daily for his labor.  Then he and his brother, James bought a small farm in partnership.  Later they sold out and each bought a place of their own.
          Mr. Hinds lived on a farm until 1896, when he disposed of his interests and moved to Morristown, where he has since resided.
          He was a veteran of the Civil war, having enlisted in 1864 as a member of Company D., 38th infantry.  He took part in the battle of Nashville and several other engagements in that vicinity.
          Mr. Hinds was a life long Republican.  He cast his first presidential vote in 1856 for John C. Freemont, the Republican nominee.  He was a member of the Morristown M. E. church and one of its staunch supporters.
          He was married on April 25, 1861 to  Miss Eliza Bassett,  who survives her husband.  He leaves besides the widow, three daughters.  Mrs. John Walker,  and  Mrs. Charles Walker, of this city,  Mrs. Frank White,  of Hanover township; two sons,  S.
