Lewiston, Idaho, April 9, 1896
George Sears a pioneer of the Clearwater basin died at Mt. Idaho March 20, at the age of 66. He came with the rush to Elk City in 1862 and made Idaho his home after that date. He resided in Lewiston at one time and removed from this city to Mt. Idaho ten years ago. He, like a large class of the pioneers, was too generous to retain the generous fortune he once owned. He died a poor man, but his good deeds will live after his years are ended.
