Moses George, son of James H. George and Kesiah Newsom, was born in Louisiana in 1853. He was married about 1878, married a second time later, and had quite a few children: Gertrude, William, Jesse, Bertha, Freddie, Lillian, Kenneth, and Burnell. The last two appear to have been with the second wife, all others with the first.

His first wife, Louisa (shown on the 1900 federal census), was born in 1858 in Louisiana and both her parents were shown as born in Louisiana. His second wife, Cecilia (shown on the 1910 federal census) was born in 1863 and seems to have been married to a Sullivan previously (two children, Joseph and Marie Sullivan, appear on that census as Moses' stepchildren).

I am seeking information on Louisa- I have so far been unable to locate a marriage certificate or anything else that would have her maiden name.
