Asst. Surgeon, Dr. George W. Yoemans Regimental Surgeon of the 23rd Pennsylvania Volunteers and 3rd brigade N.C.P. George was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on February 25th 1832. As a young man he attended medical school and had a Practice on Market Street at the Outbreak of the American Civil War. He was mustered in on August 30, 1862 most likely due to the large amount of casulties the 23rd sustained at Fair Oaks in which Dr. Roller needed assistance. He took ill after the Battle of Gettysburg and was discharged on a Surgeons certificate of Disability on March 18, 1863.He died on april 17th 1895 at the age of 63 and is buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia in Section 18, Lot 171, Grave 1.
