History of Bucks
County, Pa Volume 3 by William H. Davis
GEORGE TOMLINSON, son of Aaron and Jane (HEADLEY) TOMLINSON, and grandson of William and Rachel (EVERETT) TOMLINSON, mentioned in the preceding sketch, was born in Middletown, February 15, 1840, and was educated at the public and Friendsí schools of Langhorne. He remained on the farm with his parents until twenty years of age. In 1861 he responded to the call of his country by enlisting in Company F, One Hundred and Fourth Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers under Captain Alfred MARPLE, and that veteran of two wars, Colonel (now General) W. W. H. DAVIS, and participated with his regiment in the bloody battles of Fair Oaks, the Seven Days Fight, Marvern Hill, as well as in a number of other engagements and skirmishes. On account of ill health, he was honorably discharged on October 3, 1862, after having been confined for some time to the military hospital on Davidís Island, New York. He returned home, and after careful nursing regained to some extent his normal health, though he never fully recovered from the results of the campaign of hardships in the Virginia swamps. As soon as sufficiently recovered he resumed the vocation of a farmer, which he followed until 1883 when, having purchased a house on Green street, Langhorne, he retired to that borough, where he has since resided, having built his present residence in 1891. He has always taken an active interest in the affairs of the town, and is a member of Sergeant Hugh A. MARTINDALE Post, G. A. R., No. 366, and of Orionto Lodge, No. 177, I. O. O. F. He was reared in the faith of the society of Friends, of which his ancestors have been members for many generations. In politics he is a Republican, and has always taken an active interest in the success of his party. He married, December 21, 1865, Annie STROUSE, daughter of Samuel and Susan (LUTZ) STROUSE, of Langhorne.
