I am trying to piece together information for my George line.

For the longest time I was looking for a Bob George who changed his surname from Zacharias, per a G'Aunts hand written notes, which turns out his Name was Lewis George, from Laurens SC., and moved to AL about 1823.

The first George came to AL, through the gulf, with gov't papers to land on Bluff Ridge. I have not been able to locate this place. From there the Georges moved to Sand Mountain (once a community of Bibb Co.), Bibbville, Woodstock, Oak Grove and then finally settled in the Bessemer area. Our George cem. is located in Bessemer, it is over 100 yrs old.

Lewis moved to AL with a Land Grant from the War of 1812, well, we "think" that was what it was for anyway. The land grant was from the government.

Looking for information on this line:

Lewis George (1790) & Mary, from Laurens SC, moved to Alabama in 1823?
Bibb/Jefferson AL area
John K. GEORGE b: 1818 in SC - Married Mary Hinton
James W. GEORGE b: 1820 SC - Married Amanda Peel
Nancy GEORGE b.1815 - Married Thomas Kimbrell
Lydia GEORGE b: 1 Feb 1849
Thomas William GEORGE b: 20 Jan 1826 AL - Married Mary Ann Abernathy
Zachariah L. GEORGE b: 1829 AL - Married Mary Ann Nicholas
Dennis D. GEORGE b: 1831 AL - Married Sarah Ann Oglesberry
Martha GEORGE b: 1836 - Married Samuel Weed
Elizabeth GEORGE b: 1838 - Married Samuel B Oglesberry
Richard L. GEORGE b:1827 AL - Married Mary Ann ?

are listed as:
George, Z L 52 AL
Mary wife 46 AL
Nancy dau 28 AL
Margaret dau 18 AL
Manerva dau 15 AL - Married McBride
