George Henry Sewall1

M, b. 8 November 1859, d. 14 November 1926
     George Henry Sewall was born on 8 November 1859 in Virden, Illinois.1 He was the son of William Winter Sewall and Susan Eva Cox.1 George Henry Sewall died on 14 November 1926 in Carthage hospital, Missouri, at the age of 67 following an acute attack of asthma.2

A Community Leader.
Mr. Sewall was 67 years old. He was born In Virden, Ill., on November 8, 1860, and grew to manhood there. He was graduated from Blackburn university, Carlinville, Ill., with the degree of A.B. in 1883, and three years later was given the degree of A.M. by the same university. Following his graduation, he filled the position of assistant professor of botany in Blackburn university, having specialized in that study. In 1885 he purchased the Virden Reporter, of which he was editor and publisher about fifteen years. He also served a term as postmaster at Virden.
He came to Carthage twenty-seven years ago and became connected with the Carthage Evening Press, of which his brother, W.J. Sewall, is editor and publisher.
He was interested in agricultural and horticultural development in this district, giving much of his time and efforts to both. He founded the Jasper County Boys' Corn Show more than fifteen years ago, conducting it almost single handed until this year. He was president of the Ozark-District Fair Association, relinquishing that position last year because of failing health. He was in charge of the horticulture department last year and was vice president of the fair association at the time of his death. He also was a member of the board of managers of the state fruit experiment station at Mountain Grove, having been appointed to that post by Governor Hyde.
He was active in all civic affairs of the community, often dropping his personal affairs to devote his entire attention to some civic project. He assumed the leading role in the movement for the Memorial Hall here six years ago, working unceasingly under adverse conditions to raise the necessary funds for its construction. He was secretary of the Memorial Hall Association at the lime of his death and was personally in charge of all its affairs, devoting a major portion of his time to the work. He was a Mason, a member of the Lions Club and an active member of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Sewall was never married. In addition to the brother residing here, he is survived by two sisters, Mrs. H.M. Dubois of Wichita, Kansas, and Mrs. E.E. Dodd of Springfield. Mrs. Dubois is now in a hospital in Wichita with a broken hip and will he unable to attend the funeral. Joplin Globe, 16 November 1926.

Hiram Belcher, where he studied the subject to such good purpose, that he was admitted to the Maine bar, in 1833, when but twenty-two years of age. He settled for a time at Dexter, but in June 1835 removed to Old Town, which was then growing rapidly and was the largest lumber working town in the country. Here he engaged in the practice of his profession, and rapidly made his way to a position of leadership therein. In 1842 he was elected to the Maine legislature and was eight times returned to that body. He was Speaker of the House in 1851-52. From 1853 until 1857 he held the office of Collector of Customs at Bangor. In 1862, although a Democrat, he was appointed Assessor of Internal Revenue by Abraham Lincoln and continued in that office until 1869. In all the public posts held by Mr Sewall he exhibited a capacity and disinterestedness, which gained him a high place in the esteem and affection of the community and there were few figures in Maine, better known or better loved than he. During the Civil War he performed a valuable service for his country, it being largely through his influence and exertions that two full companies of soldiers were enlisted principally from Old Town to fight for the cause of the Union. In spite of his party affinity, he was returned to Augusta as Old Town's representative at the outbreak of the war by a vote of 381 to 17. He worked incessantly during the four years of that tremendous struggle and exerted a wide influence both in the State, and in the Nation" Maine: a history, 1919.
