"Daily Local News" February 26, 1913 - IN REMEMBRANCE - In loving remembrance of George H. Jacobs, who departed this life February 26, 1912: Human hands tried to save him, But their labors were in vain; For Christ thought it best to take him, From this world of grief and pain. Dear is the grave where our loved one is laid; Sweet is the memory that never shall fade. Roses may wither, leaves fade and die; If others forget him, never shall I. Peaceful be his silent slumber, Peacefully he did pass away, And I hope to join his number, On the morn of Judgment Day. HIS WIFE, MOTHER AND SISTER.
