Ancestral Notes

My Family History blog

“George was just wore out”

I have often wondered about the different diseases listed in my ancestor’s death certificates. I run across Bright’s disease, consumption, teething, etc. and I figure out the modern term for the medical condition.
When I found the record of my great-great-grandfather, George Milne Fairbairn, the cause of death doesn’t seem to be listed anywhere, he was just “worn out”. I have seen ‘old age’ but ‘worn out’ is one that I haven’t come across before.
