Everett Daily Herald 5-3-1905 CIVIL WAR VETERAN COLVILLE, May 3- The remains of George Simmons, who was found dead in his cabin near Addy, were brought to Colville and interred in the public cemetery. Simmons was an old soldier, and all that is know of him is that he came here from Maine ten years ago. He has no relatives here, but left a family in the east. He was about 60 year of age. Last Monday he was in Colville to see the United States court commissioner about making final proof on his homestead. On his way home he secured a team at the Addy livery stable. The team was found in his barn. Simmons was found on his bed, face downward, lifeless, Friday. While the impression first given out was that he committed suicide by strychnine poisoning, investigation by the sheriff went to show that he died a natural death. He had about $15 in money in his pockets. He had been given somewhat to drink, and it is thought he smothered to death. SnoCo: "The Karyn Project"
