      December 15, 1933 "Pagosa Springs Sun"
      Pagosa Springs, Colorado
      George C. Shahan, age 53, who passed away this evening at his home in Chromo, was
      born on January 2, 1880 in Berryville, Arkansas. With his parents he moved to Kansas in
      1892, and in 1900 located in New Mexico, where he resided until 1910, when he
      removed to Chromo. He made his home continuously in Chromo since 1910 with the
      exception of his eighteen months service in the U. S. Army as a member of the 101st
      Field Artillery, which made a distinctive record in France during the World War of 1917-
      1918. Prior thereto he had served in the Philippine Insurrection during the aftermath of
      the Spanish-American War in the period extending from 1904 to 1907. He is survived by
      two brothers, Grant Shahan of Chromo and Hiram Shahan of Ripley, Oklahoma; two
      sisters, Nancy Bridwell also of Ripley and Clara Huffman of Elgin, Kansas; and several
      nieces and nephews. He never married and preceding him in death were his parents;
      three brothers; and two sisters. During his residence in Chromo he had engaged in the
      ranch and stock business, and was considered quite successful in his enterprises. He
      was, also, for many years the carrier of the U. S. mail between the Lumberton, New
      Mexico and Chromo post offices. George Shahan made and retained many friends
      during his twenty three years of residence in Archuleta County. It is difficult for those
      friends and his immediate family to realize that he has passed away, and the sympathy
      of all is extended to the bereaved ones in the tragic loss of their brother and uncle, who
      led a colorful and respectful life in this county for so many years. He was a member of
      the Masonic Order of Pagosa Springs, which will, perhaps, take charge of the burial
      service when the surviving relatives determine where interment will take place.
