    Notes 
    • George H. Grouse, a native of Livingston County and a retired farmer, died at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home, 1220 Clay street. He had been in failing health for some time. Mr. Grouse was one of Livingston County's oldest citizens and had been retired from farming since 1944. He and Mrs. Grouse moved into Chillicothe in that year. Mr. Grouse lived in the same farm vicinity, south and west of Springhill, 82 years—until the move to town. He was born Aug. 4, 1861, son of John and Barbara Londenberg Grouse. Sept. 27, 1887, he and Miss Margaret Hargrave were married in the recorder's office of the old Livingston County building which now is the Oakland apartment. The couple had made their trip from Springhill to Chillicothe in a spring wagon. The marriage ceremony was performed by Henry Cowgill, probate judge. The newly-married couple moved to their farm a quarter of a mile from his birthplace and cleared the place of white oak timber so it could be farmed. They spent 56 years on the same farm. Mr. Grouse was baptized into the Lutheran church at an early age and was a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge of Chillicothe. In his advanced years, he continued to walk downtown each day to spend afternoons in the Odd Fellows hall playing rummy and dominoes. He was downtown Friday for the last time. Mrs. Grouse died May 5, 1951. He also was preceded in death last November by a son, Fred Grouse, a former judge of the Livingston County court. Surviving are three sons, Rude C. Grouse and Nove Grouse, both of Chillicother and Arthur Grouse, Kansas City, and two daughters, Mrs. Fred Wenke, Chillicothe, and Mrs. Harold Mitchell, Bend, Ore. Funeral services will be held Friday at the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. Burial will be in the Mt. Pleasant cemetery.
