George was married to Nellie G. Wyman who died in 1956, at the age of 82.
George's grave site was not publicly known when I began the search for his 'final waypoint.' I searched the online records of every cemetery in San Joaquin County, Alameda County and many of the places he had lived without luck. The obituary clippings above were sent to me by the archivist of the San Joaquin County Historical Society. That led me to search for any records left by the funeral home or the Pastor who performed the services. These proved a dead end.
Then, late one evening, I was plodding through more cemetery records and discovered this entry posted by the California Genealogy & History Archives:
"Wyman George A. 3/21/1960* CLM S/W: Wyman, Nellie G."
I asked if they would be interested in listing him on their "Famous People" page of the cemetery's website. They are looking into doing that. Also, I told them of the GAW Memorial Project and asked if they would be willing to mount a memorial plaque somewhere on the grounds of the cemetery. They are also looking into doing that.
On 7/14/2014 I updated the George A. Wyman - Wikipedia entry to record his final way point.
