A copy of the following unidentified newspaper article was found in a scrapbook owned by Town Historian Richard Schmal:
In West Creek, Lake County, Ind., George, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Hayden. He was born April 23, 1872 and died May 4th, 1890. He was taken sick April 24th and died after an illness of ten days of diphtheria. George possessed a very pleasant disposition, winning many friends by his quiet genteel ways, and those who knew him best treasure his friendship most highly and he will be sadly missed by his circle of friends and associates.
