It is with much regret that we announce the death of our young friend GEORGE HOWARD, the youngest son of Col. J. J. Howard, of this city.  How truly it may be said, in referring to this sad affair, “In the midst of life we are in death.”  But a week ago yesterday, Wednesday, he was in our office, appearing, to us, to be in perfect health; now, he is numbered with the dead.  George was a good boy, and had many warm and attached friends.  Our loss is his gain.  We tender our sincere sympathies to his bereaved parents and friends.  We have known the loss of several sons, some of them just about George’s age, and our expressions of sympathy are heart-felt. [A Tribute of Respect to George G. Howard by Council No. 44 United Friends of Temperance can be found on page 3 of the March 25, 1875 issue.  A longer obituary can also be found on page 3 of the March 25, 1875 issue giving his date of death as March 16, 1875, aged 19 years, 7 months.  A poem “In Memoriam” written for George G. Howard can be found on page 3 of the April 1, 1875 issue.  A notice is also published saying George Howard’s age was 17 years and seven months old, not 19 years and 7 months old.]
