George L. Keisling, Wealthy Farmer
of Rush County.
          RUSHVILLE, Ind., Sept. 6. -- George L. Keisling,  aged sixty-nine, one of the most influential and widely known farmers of Rush county, died at his home near Milroy Friday night and was buried yesterday.  He was a native of Shelby county, where his parents settled on their arrival from Virginia in 1826.  They afterward located in Rush county.  At the age of twenty-seven young Keisling married  Sarah Millee,  and their earthly possesions[sic] were contained in a lumber wagon which carried them to their new home, a small log cabin in Anderson township, this county.  Fortune smiled on George L. Keisling, and when he was fifty he was one of the largest land owners in the township.  Four of seven children are living, one of them,  Leonidas W. Keisling,  being trustee of Richland township.
