George Melvin Take To Rest

George Melvin, keeper of the city dump north of Whipple, died at 9
o'clock in Mercy hospital last night of pneumonia. He was 70 years
old.

Last Friday a driver of a city garbage truck discovered Melvin in
his hut, seriously ill. Arrangements were made for him to be taken
to Mercy hospital late that afternoon. Since then, it is reported,
he showed no sign of throwing off the disease; instead, his physical
condition gradually became more critical.

Due to the fact that he was of a quiet disposition and was not prone
to speak of his private affairs, it is not known to the city
authorities whether he has any relatives at all, although his
private effects are to be gone over with the hope in view that more
light may be thrown on the matter.

Melvin has been a resident of Prescott for several years and in
charge of the city dump for five or six years. He came here from
California and is a Methodist by faith.

Transcriber's note: Mr. Melvin is buried at the Citizens Cemetery in
Prescott, Arizona.
