Enquirer (Richmond, VA), Saturday, January 2, 1813

"Died at Mr. Thomas Redd's, in Prince Edward, on Wednesday the 16th inst. GEORGE W. REDD.  He adds another name to the long catalogue of victims which his family has rendered up to a hereditary pulmonick disease. Every virtue which can give worth and character to man, and every generous emotion which softens the heart into friendship and benevolence, conspired to make him one of the most amiable and beloved of young men.  Aware of the certainty and nearness of his fate, his last days were occupied in preparing himself for that new stage of existence upon which he was so certainly, and so soon to enter.
Shortly previous to his death, he felt the most satisfactory conviction that his peace with heaven was accomplished; and the fortitude and calmness with which he resigned his life afforded the amplest proof of the happy change."
