The death of Mr. George V. Correll ocurred [sic] at his residence Saturday evening at 6:30 o'clock. Mr. Correll was in his usual health a short time before his death. He had left his home, and was working in a field, where he was found by his wife in a sinking condition. He was carried home and lived only a short while, heart disease being the cause of his death. Mr. Correll was sixty-eight years old. He was a minister in the Dunkard church, a true Christian, and an upright citizen. He was a member of the Fifty-fourth Virginia regiment during the war, and was a brave and efficient soldier, and saw much service. He was a colorbearer for his regiment. Mr. Correll was married twice, his first wife being a Miss Wickham [SSS note - Hannah Jane Wickham], of Pilot. From this union there were ten children--Messrs. C.S. E. E., George, Rastus, and Caleb and Mrs. Brinda Madison, Mrs. Lilly Hamblin, Mrs. Sarah Graham, Mrs. Dora Graham, and Miss Pearl. Mr. Correll is survived by his last wife, who was a Miss Weaver [SSS note - Elizabeth C. (Lizzie) Weaver]. The body will be buried in the family burying ground near his late residence.
