George Jacobs

October 10, 1902 - November 16, 1918


Word has been received here in Barton, Vermont of the death of George Blake Jacobs, son of W.L. and Mary B Jacobs of South Pasadena, California on November 26, of tuberculosis. George was born in Barton in 1902. He had been in delicate health for nearly two years and has been unable to attend high school this year, but his death was a shock to all, following a severe hemorrhage. He was universally liked, had a rare faculty of making friends, and would not admit that he was sick. The Jacobs family moved from Barton to California in 1904.
