(1861- )

"George M. Bilger was born at Curwensville, Clearfield county, September 15, 1861; was entered as a law student with William C. Arnold, esq., of Curwensville, in 1883, while attending the Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa., and was admitted to the bar of the county March 22, 1886. Since October, 1886, Mr. Bilger has been located at Coalport." [Lewis Cass Aldrich, History of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania 255 (New York: D. Mason & Co., Publishers, 1887)]

[We learned that Bilger was an attorney around the turn of the century in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, and the author of a book of poems, by way of a news article in the The Progress (Clearfield, Pennsylvania), Dec. 14, 1968.]
