CAPT. GEORGE A. SHIELDS DEAP.
Columbia Loses Valued and Venera-,
ble Citizen, Aged 91.
Columbia, Au4gpst 3.-Capt. George
A. Shields, who had spent Forty-nine
of his ninety-one years in Columbia,
serving well has adopted State and
city, as volunteer fireman, as city
councilman, as director of the State
penitentiary during the construction
of the Columbia canal and as armorer
to the Confederate, government Aur
ingi the War Between the Sections,
died this morning, at 10.20 o'clock, in
his home, 631 Laurel street, as the
result of a general decline in health,
which commenced several weeks ago.'
Capt. Shiel'ds was proprietor of the
Palmetto Iron Works, this being the
long established 'business in- which he
was first employed as foreman upon'
his arrival in Columbia in 1852.
Cart. Shield's wife, Mrs. Mary A.
Shields, died about four years ago.
He is survived only by two children,
Mrs. Robert King and Mrs. Harry
Scott, of Birmingham, both of whom
lost their husband by death duringj
the spring of this year. The funeral
arrangements will be announced on'
the arrival of Mesdames King and
Capt. Shields at 14 left his home in
Scotland. He grew to manhood in.
Troy, N. Y. He learned the trades of
armorer, founder and machinist in
the Watervliet Arsenal at Troy. In
1852 he came to Columbia as foreman
for Messrs. Glaze & Boatwright, who
operated the arsenal, furnishing arms
and munitions of war to the State gov
ernment under contract. Capt. Shields!
remained with this firm until about
two years after the War Between the
Sections, when he took over the prop
erty and business himself. Since that
time had devoted himself constantly
to the business, although no military
supplies . have been manufactured
there since the war. Local tradition
has it that he cast cannon fofi the Con
federate government in his foundry,
but this Capt. Shields himself denied
during an interview with a. newspalfer
man a year ago. The work done un
der his supervision was mainly the
manufacture of Springfield rifles and
bayonets, axes and other military sup
plies. One of his first tasks after his
arrival here was to fit percussion
locks to about 6,000 flint-and-steel
When Gen. W. T. Sherman's column
approached Columbia, prior to lay
ing it in ashes, a Federal battery
shelled the city from the Lexington
bluffs of the Congaree, and the smoke
stack of the Shields Foundery still
bears the marks of this bombardment.
One of Capt. Shield's treasures was
the long brass steam whistle which
had been used at the foundery since
before his arrival.
Capt. Shields was life president of
the Palmetto Fire Engine company,
and was one of its few surviving ,char
ter members. Capt. Shields remained
the strong, virile man of his prime,
mentally and physically, until very
recently. His general health was
good. He gave close attention to his
business, and he delighted in the fre
quent visits of his friends, very many
of whom were young men. His acti
vity had been somewhat hampered in
late years, because of the amputation
of his leg two years ago. A slight
wound to the foot became gangrenous,
and this necessitated the major opera
tion, which this iron-nerved man of
89 underwent, it is said, without
anaesthesia. " Those who know him
need no reminder at this time of Capt.
Shields's virtues. He was an upright
and well beloved citizen, devotedly
attached to his city and always glad
to aid her advancement by any means
at his command.
