      Find Their Son Dead in Bed
      Mr. and Mrs. Sam Jaus Made Startling Discovery Saturday Morning
      Young Man Was in Usual Health When he Retired on Friday Evening

      Mr. and Mrs. Samuel JAUS of Elkland township were terribly shocked and grieved Saturday morning when they found their son, George, aged 17 years, dead in his bed. The young man had been in his usual health on Friday, having worked all day buzzing wood. He spent the evening in playing the phonograph and visiting with members of the family. When he failed to answer the morning call Saturday, his parents made the startling discovery of his demise. Death was due to appoplexy.

      George Alvin Jaus was born in Elkland Township, Feb. 23, 1903. He attended the "Brick" school three miles northeast of Cass City until he had finished the eighth grade and since that time has been employed on his parents's farm where he proved to be a great help and an efficient coworker with his father in carrying out the farming operations.

      The young man was a member of the Evangelical church and took much interest in the Sunday school of that church. He was held in high esteem by his many friends.

      Funeral services were held at the Evangelical church Tuesday afternoon, Rev. F.L POHLY officiating and interment was made in Elkland cemetery.  Vernon STRIFFLER, Grant PATTERSON, Leonard STRIFFLER, Arlie SPENCER, Lawrence BUEHRLY and Louis STRIFFLER, members of George's Sunday school class, acted as pallbearers.

      Besides his parents, he leaves one sister, Minnie.

      Art Peck relates the following family story, "George grew so large that his heart could not take it."

      Jaus, George A,b. 23 Feb 1903, d. 12 Feb 1921
