George Borst obituary

September 1930

George Borst, eighty, of Brooklyn, former resident of Middleburgh, died in the Ellis Hospital, Schenectady, on Saturday, Sept. 6. He was spending the summer months at Crystal lake when he was taken suddenly ill and Dr. Simpkins of Middleburgh, ordered him taken to the Schenectady hospital where his case was found to be hopeless. Mr. Borst was born in the Burgett Hotel, Fultonham. For many years he lived in the Hook on the farm now known as the William Lamont farm, Middleburgh. He was an engineer and in 1880 moved to New York City where he followed the same line. Two years ago his wife died, and since that time his health had gradually failed him. He was a highly respected citizen and had many friends in this vicinity who mourn his loss. He was a member of the Sylvan Grove Lodge No. 275 F. and A. M. of New York and was also an Odd Fellow. Funeral services were held to the Middleburgh Cemetery chapel Monday in charge of Middleburgh Lodge No. 663 F. and A. M. and burial was in the local cemetery. He is survived by four sons, George D. and William E. of Brooklyn, Edwin D. of Long Island and C. Robert of Montague, N. J.
