Another Veteran Gone
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.”

“Besides his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. George W. Feige of Worcester, Mass. and Miss Helen E. Salisbury of Auburn, and one son, Sherman S. Salisbury.”

“Funeral services will be held at the Central Presbyterian Church on Monday afternoon next at 2:30 o’clock. Dr. F. W. Palmer, officiating and Seward-Crocker Post 45 G.A.R. will conduct the services of the Grand Army, Mr. Salisbury being a member of that post.”

“Burial will be made in the family plot in Fort Hill Cemetery.”

The Auburn Citizen
Sept. 20, 1915
Funeral of George W. Salisbury
“Funeral services for George W. Salisbury were held this afternoon at 2:30 o’clock at the Central Presbyterian Church. Rev. F. W. Palmer, D. D. offered prayer. The Seward-Crocker Post, of which the deceased was a member then conducted Grand Army services. Many friends and relatives were in attendance. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. Burial was made in Fort Hill. Six members of the Seward-Crocker Post acted as bearers.”

The Auburn Citizen

Aurora and Wells
Death of George W. Salisbury removes another who went out from Aurora
“Sept 22 – George W. Salisbury, who died in Auburn last week was a one time resident in this village and clerked in Morgan’s store. During the Civil War and while clerking with George S. Bentley, both enlisted in the One Hundred Eleventh New York Volunteer Infantry. Mr. Bentley died last May at his home in Brooklyn. In Morgan’s store is a picture that has hung there a great many years and attracted a great deal of attention. The picture is a group of 24 men who served in the Civil War from this village and town. In the center of the picture stand Mr. Salisbury and Mr. Bentley the latter’s hand resting on Mr. Salisbury’s shoulder. Of the group in the picture, all are dead except three, John Vanderipe of Aurora, Thomas Gray of North Fair Haven, and Elisha Winters of Montour Falls, New York.”
