Mrs. George W. Engle
February 18, 1921

     Mrs. George W. Engle, a native of the town of Broome and for many years a resident of the town of Middleburgh, died at the home of her son William Engle near Hawverville Feb. 14th as the result of a shock sustained some weeks before. Had she lived until the 12th of March she would have reached the age of 84. She was a daughter of Justice Hagadorn of the town of Broome who lived to reach the age of 100.
     Mrs. Engle was one of the good women of this world and made friends wherever she went. She had a host of them among the elder people of this community where for many years she was held in high esteem. Since her husband's death, several years ago, she had lived with her children. She is survived, by three sons, Justice, Lyman and William, and two daughters, Mrs. Rolland Whitney of Albany and Mrs. F. W. Hallenbeck also of Albany. Her funeral took place Monday at Livingstonville. Her remains were laid to rest by the side of her husband in the Middleburgh cemetery.

     The body of Mrs. George W. Engle was brought here for interment in the Middleburgh cemetery on Sunday. Mrs. Engle reached the ripe age of 83 years and is survived by several children. She is pleasantly remembered by many of our older citizens, the family formerly resided on the Manning farm just below the village and were highly esteemed by all who knew them. Mrs. Engle was a woman of many sterling qualities. She was a daughter of the late Justus Hagadorn and after his removal from Middleburgh many years ago, resided with her son in the town of Broome.

     Last week, in writing up the obituary of Mrs. George W. Engle, the name of Thomas Engle of Potter Hollow was inadvertently as one of the sons. Four sons survive her.
