George V. Bohrer
(Farmer, Post-office, Montgomery City)

Mr. Bohrer is a native of Germany, born in Bavaria near the Rhine, May 15, 1819. His parents were George and Katherine (Rifflemarcher) Bohrer, and when he was about six years of age, the family immigrated to America and settled in Ohio. The mother died in Illinois in 1877, and the father in 1880. George Bohrer, Jr., was raised in Ohio, where he married, and when a young man came on further west, to Illinois, with his wife Miss Nancy Moore, who was also originally of Ohio, a daughter of Samuel G. Moore. Mr. Bohrer resided in Illinois for over twenty years after his marriage, and then in 1865 removed to Missouri, settling in Montgomery county, on the land where he has lived continuously for over nineteen years. His homestead contains over 160 acres, and is substantially and comfortably improved. Besides this he has 180 acres in another tract, which is also improved. His wife died in 1873, having borne him eight children, namely: Catherine, Mary E., wife of Liman Hall, Nancy E., Emily, wife of John Rhodecker; Lena D., wife of Walter Black; Henrietta, and Charles. Ella died in Montgomery county Mo., in her twenty-first year.

The above was copied from Page 725 of History of Montgomery County, Missouri, 1885, National Historical Company, St. Louis.
The book was located in the Mexico-Audrain County Library, 305 W. Jackson, Mexico, Missouri 65265.

Michael Kirtley <>.

Died, at his home near Belleflower, on Dec. 24 A.D. 1904, Geo. V. Bohrer, at the age of 85 years, 7 months and 10 days. Mr. Bohrer was born in Bavaria Germany, May the 15, 1819. With his parents he came to America when he was about six yrs. of age.

The family first settled in Ohio, and after a time moved to Illinois. While but a young man Mr. Bohrer was married to Miss Nancy Moore. In 1865 they moved to Missouri and settled in Montgomery county which has been his home ever since.

There preceded him to the better land two daughters, Henrietta, Ella and his wife. There remain to mourn his loss five daughters and one son, namely: Catherine, Mary E. Hall, Nancy E., Emily Rhodecker, Zerlinna Black and Charles, all of whom were present during his last sickness except Mrs. Black, whose health would not permit of her coming. After appropriate funeral services conducted by Rev. Oakes, pastor, assisted by the writer, the remains were laid to rest by the side of those of his deceased wife in Union chapel cemetery.

For a number of years Catherine and Nancy E., daughters, and Orville, grandson, have been almost continually in the home of Uncle Geo. To comfort and cheer him in his old age. How good it is to see the aged so kindly cared for. Uncle George was a man of many sterling qualities. He was a man of great industry and energy. His word of promise did not need bond or note to make it good. He was a good Christian man. For a great many years he had been identified with the Brush Creek Congregation C. P. Church. He was a man of deep convictions and had the courage to assert them and to be governed by them. The word of the Lord was to him supreme and there was no appeal from that word. The church was to him sacred, the body of Christ, the only organization 滴eaven born and Heaven bound. He regarded with positive disapproval any and all human organizations which seek to supplant the church. It seemed sad that he was not permitted to move into his new house in Bellflower, which was almost ready for occupancy. However good it might be to live in the beautiful new town above mentioned, yet a mansion by the gold paved streets of the New Jerusalum is far better. 鄭nd the building of the wall of it was of Jasper; and the city was pure gold like unto clear glass; and the city had no need of the sun; neither of the moon, to shine in it, for the glory of god did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof
