George W. Salisbury, Well-Known Resident, Answers Last Roll Call

“George W. Salisbury, a very well known and highly respected citizen and veteran, died early this morning at his home, No. 1 ½ Lewis Street.”

“Mr. Salisbury had not been feeling as well as usual lately and had been under the care of a physician for about a week. Last evening he retired at the usual time and at midnight awoke and Mrs. Salisbury gave him some medicine. At about 5 o’clock Mrs. Salisbury again awoke and found Mr. Salisbury unconscious. She immediately called Dr. W. H. Coe who found life extinct when he arrived.”

“He had lived in Auburn over 40 years and in his younger days was well known as a musician, playing the violin, and having an exceptionally good bass voice, had sung in many choirs and choruses.”

“During the Civil War he served in Company K, One Hundred Eleventh New York Volunteer Infantry and had a good record.”
