Cottingham, George Marion

George Marion Cottingham

Notes for George Marion COTTINGHAM-163

MILITARY: George Cottingham was a veteran of the Civil War.


"He giveth His beloved sleep." Death has again entered our midst and taken from a happy home a loving husband and father. George M. Cottingham was born near Moores Hill, Ind., May 25, 1840, died July 11, 1894.

He lived with his parents until the Civil War, when he enlisted and helped to free his country from bondage.

He was married to Dennie E. Henthorn, Sept. 29, 1870, and to them were born three sons, who with their mother are left to mourn. But the thoughts of a happy home when father was with them, will ever shine as a bright star in their memory.

He joined the M.E. Church in 1874 and lived a consistent Christian life. He was a member of Langwell Post G.A.R., under whose auspices he was buried.

A loving husband and father, a kind neighbor and faithful citizen, whose memory we will every revere until the Angel of Death shall call us to join on the Heavenly Shore.
