Shared note

George was on Shirleysburg Town Council in 1871, 1875, and 1876, and Constable in 1878-79. He was also Shirley Township Constable in 1873.

GEORGE WITHINGTON was born in Mill Hall, Pa. Sept. -, 1844, the son of John Withington. His father was a tailor by trade. He migrated into Shirleysburg a number of years ago. George Withington has resided in this town most all his life, He married Miss Caroline Hoover and his children are: John P. of Mount Jewett: George P. of Kalamazoo, Mich.; one infant daughter (deceased). Mr. Withington is one of Shirleysburg's progressive citizens, always among the first to push an enterprise for the good of the town. He has served his people in almost every public office in the borough, always a contributor toward a good cause. He is now soliciting subscriptions for the creation of a new Iron fence around the old Shirleysburg cemetery, for which he deserves to be commended not only by the present citizens, but by former residents of the town who have relatives buried in this old historic, cemetery. Mr. Withington followed butchering for about 25 years, being associated with John Jacobs for some time, also with John A. Kerr later. He quit butchering 1884, and has since been living retired.

Media object
Note: In the Old Baptist Cemetery just north of Shirleysburg is the tombstone of George and Caroline Withington.
