George Dempsey 1900? Tennessee
Posted by: Jill Alexander (ID *****8325) Date: July 01, 2011 at 04:46:32

I am looking for a man who is my great grandfather, George Dempsey. I only know that as his name and not his full name. He was born in Alabama, but is buried in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He married a Mary Ruth (my great grandmother), but I don't know her maiden name. Mary Ruth was widowed by George and later became a Houser having children by Mr. Houser also. My grandmother is Bertha Vivian Dempsey Brooks, George's and Mary's daughter. I am not sure if she is the only product of that marriage, but Vivian was born in 1900 and died in 1935 from post operative shock. George's name is on the death certificate as her father. That is all I have found in my search of the man. I am not even sure when George died, but I understand that Mary loved him dearly. I have noticed that Mary used both Mary and Ruth in the censuses I am finding, but I can't find one with George :o( All my Aunts and Uncles that might would have known anything have passed I am going at this blindly. I am hoping one of you might know where I can find information on him and would greatly appreciate any help in my search :o) Thanks and hope all have a blessed day.
