7-19-1901 - SANDERS - GEORGE - H. - JUDGE - 1849 - 7 4 1901 - FCTIMES - "News reached the city the latter part of last week of the death of Judge Geo.H.Sanders, which sad event occurred at the home of his brother-in-law, Mr.J.H.Crabtree, of Kingfisher, Oklahoma, Indian Territory, on July 4,1901, at the age of 52 years. Judge Sanders was well known by many of the leading and most prominent citizens of Arkansas, and especially in Eastern Arkansas was his acquaintance wide and distinguished, and his death will universally and sincerely lamented, although his death was not untimely from the fact that for several years deceased had been in a delicate state of health both mentally and physically. Geo.H.Sanders was born in Mississippi and removed to Cross County, Arkansas, shortly before or about the time he had reached majority, taking up the study of law in the office of one of the Brookfields. He was admitted to the bar about 1870 and shortly afterwards moved to St.Francis county and hung out his shingle in Forrest City. He built up a fine practice in the courts of Eastern Arkansas and was acknowledged the leading and brightest attorney of his time. Judge Sanders resided in this community from 1871 to 1883, when he removed to Little Rock, where he soon established himself as one of the most prominent practitioners of the legal fraternity of the capital city. He made money and it is said had amassed a snug fortune. but became too involved in one or two business ventures in Little Rock, which wrecked his fortune, health and reason, and a brilliant career was suddenly checked. Shortly after these misfortunes, he moved to St.Louis in the hope of re-establishing himself in his profession, but the strain had been too much, and his health began to decline. Deceased was a brother of Mrs.Brookfield, of Wynne, and a grand uncle of Mr.James Izard of this city."
