George was the only child of George & Charity Elizabeth (Crim) Washington. His obituary, which tells a little about his life, follows:

"Death of George Cleveland Washington Regretted

Father of Deceased Youth was the Founder of Centralia and had Most Interesting History, Now Retold

The funeral of the late George Cleveland Washington was held from the Baptist church in this city on Thursday, January 5th, Rev. Chas. E. Flanagin conducting the service. The interment was made in the Washington Lawn Cemetery.

Young George Washington was born in Centralia on December 15, 1891, and was, consequently a little over nineteen years of age at the time of his death. The cause of his death was congestion of the lungs, the result of exposure at the recent fire at Vashon College, at which institution George was a student. He rendered considerable assistance at the fire and was soaked with water. His fatal illness was the result. He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Charity E. Washington."

His obituary is followed by news about his father.
