GEORGE BAGLEY 1825-1905
Death of Geo. Bagley
Akron is today mourning the death of one of its oldest and most respected citizens whose death occurred at his home in Akron, Wednesday night last after an illness covering several weeks.
The deceased has been a familiar figure on our street for several years and always had a pleasant word for all, and his presence will be missed. Mr. Bagley had always been a hearty robust man until his last illness in which his age - 80 years - made it impossible to combat the disease, though the best of medical and nursing had been given him.
His funeral will take place this afternoon from the M.E. Church where no doubt a large concouse of friends will assemble to pay a last tribute of respect to his memory.
The funeral will be under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity of which order he has been a member since 1868.
Geo. Bagley was born at Sharon, Vermont, May 15, 1825, and when a child moved to Brandon, Knox County, Ohio, and in 1838 the family pushed farther west to the then almost uninhabited country where now is located the thriving town of West Liberty, Iowa. Here he grew to manhood and in 1854 married Miss Mary Ellen Bolon to whom six children were born, five of them, with the widow, survive, as follows: Edward, of Harlan, Iowa; Elmer E.; Fred; Mrs. Geo. Townsend and Miss Myrtie, all of whom except the first named were with him when the end came. In 1887, with his family he moved to a claim south of Akron where he lived until coming to town where he has since lived.
He was the third of a family of eight children and a direct descendant from Pilgrim stock, for in 1620 there landed from the good ship Mayflower, Mary Chilton who has the distinction of being the first female to set foot on land in New England. Mary Chilton's parents died the first winter and she married a brother of Governor Winslow. Five children were from of this marriage. Their daughter, Susanna Winslow married Robert Latham, James Latham, their son married a Miss Deliverance. Their son Joseph, married Sarah Hayward in 1717. Their son married Mary Prior in 1748, their son James married Esther Baker of Royalton, Vermont, their son married Jemima Poor in 1792. Their son Alsop married Polly Cole whose daughter, born in 1801 married Simeon Arvin Bagley. To this union eight children were born: William, Harry, George, James, Almira, John, Arvin and Ellen. The town of West Liberty, mentioned above, was platted by the father of the deceased and was by him named. He comes from a stock that is remarkable for longevity. end
Transcription of the actual obit submitted by Judy Jackson of Port Reyes, CA, descendant of William, George's eldest brother. This lineage is incorrect. Alsop and Polly Cole were not parents of Almira, they were her Uncle and Aunt. Isaac and Jemina Poor are correct.
