George R. Brundage

Birth: Aug., 1851, McDonough County, Illinois

Died: Oct. 9, 1851, McDonough County, Illinois

This baby died at 1 month, 17 days old. He was the third child born to Soloman Brundage and his second wife, Catherine Smedley.  Another young child, also named George Brundage is likewise interred in this cemetery; that child is a half-brother to this infant by means of his father's first marriage.

The baby's burial is documented by: Duane Lester's, Rural Cemeteries of McDonough County, Illinois, Volume II, Bethel-Industry. The surface of the stone is faded, but the aluminum foil overlay technique allowed easy identification as evidenced by the photograph from March 2008 which appears above.

Biographical information comes from census records, vital statistics, and marriage records from and the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index.
