Lake Charles Echo, Saturday, June 12, 1886, p. 2:


        In Houston, Texas, on June 3, 1886, Georgiana Goos, wife of Ernest Timmins, daughter of Daniel and Katherine Goos, aged 29 years, 4 months, and 29 days.
        Mrs. Timmins was the daughter of Daniel and Katherine Goos, of this city, and wife of Ernest Timmins; and at the time of her death resided with her husband and five children in Houston, Texas. She was 29 years, 4 months, and 29 days old at the time of her death; loved and admired by relatives and friends. True the adage that "death loves a shining mark." She had the misfortune to lose one of her children, who was brought to the family graveyard and buried at Goosport not long since. Mrs. Timmins was an estimable lady, and had many warm friends in Lake Charles and the surrounding country, who were deeply pained at the sad intelligence of her death, which reached here on Friday last. Her remains were interred on the 5th. inst., in the family burying ground at Goosport, in the presence of many fond and loving relatives and sympathizing friends.
