George Cornwell
Died on 1/17/1909

28 Jan., 1909 - Blair Democrat - Floyd Cornwell

News of the death of Floyd Cornwell in Kansas reached his son, U. S. Cornwell of this city last week, and U. S. went down there to attend the funeral, returning Saturday. Mr. Cornwell was one of the first settlers in Cuming City township, this county, and was the first blacksmith to locate in Blair, leaving here in 1876 and settling in Burt county where he stayed until 1886. From there he went to Thurston county and in 1893 moved to Kansas where he farmed. Mr. Cornwell will be remembered by many of our older settlers who will regret very much to learn of his death.
