Obituary: Missouri Republican, December 27, 1863

Died of pneumonia, at his residence, The Woodlands, Big River, Jefferson Co., MO., Dr. George A. Smith, on 13 December, 1863. The deceased emigrated twenty years ago from England, bringing with him the highest testimonials of professional reputation from his old preceptor, Dr. Ferguson, Professor of Medicine in King’s College, London, of which institution he was a graduate in all its departments. As a physician, he was distinguished for his skill and attention, whilst his kindly feelings were proverbial. By his energy of character, he carved his way to fortune and distinction and died in the full assurance of eternal life, leaving a wife and one child, to whom he was devoted in life to mourn his loss in common with all the neighborhood of his professional visitations.
