Additional Information

Cause of Death: Influenza

Buried: 24 Jun 1935, Greenwood Cemetery, Platteville, Grant, WI 9

Notes:

George became a physician and practiced in Platteville, WI for 20 years until 1915.

In his early 50's George suffered from early senility and had to give up his medical practice.

His wife was unable to care for him, so he was sent to the county Asylum in Lascaster where he died.
I have a photo of G.L. Nicklas as a young man.
