George I. McClellan Bryner

(1862 - 1923)

Obituary - from newspaper clipping    

George I. Bryner, son of Catherine Cook Bryner and Israel C. Bryner, was born on October 31, 1862, and on the day of his death was 61 years and 29 days old.  He was born in the old Bryner homestead about two miles from Shippenville, and not far from the house in which he died.  He was not ill long.  Death came as a result of lagrippe.

His entire life was spent in this vicinity except for a few short seasons in the hemlock woods of Forest County.  He lived a simple life.  He was a man of few words and was a lover of the woods and its inhabitants.  All children who knew him loved him,  and it is by these perhaps he will be missed most.  He never married.

Surviving him are a sister Lily, of Union City, and the following brothers:  D. A., of Shippenville; I. C., of Huntington Park, Calif.; C. B., of Rawles Springs, Miss.; B. W., of Punxsutawney; and E. W. of Shippenville.  Two other brothers preceded him in death during the past two years, Jos. C., who lived at Commerce, Okla. and S. S., who lived at Sheffield.  A sister, Barbara, died in infancy.
