  • Notes 
    • Obituary:

      Source Unknown. George Washington Virts, 89 years of age, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J.C. Vickers, about four miles west of Lovettsville, near the Short Hill Mountains, May 7th. He is survived by four sons, Edward of Neersville; William of Lovettsville; Charles and Joseph, in Ohio; and two daughters, Mrs. Swope, Knoxville, Md. and Mrs. Vickers; at whose home he died.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Tombstone shows his birth year as 1840, however all Census indicate it was 1841, including the 1900 Census which shows birth as January 1841. I believe 1841 is the correct year of birth considering his younger brother Joseph was born in 1839 and it would have been only 7 months between Joseph birth and his.
