HELLO. I WAS GIVEN THE INFORMATION THAT MANSE GEORGE WAS THE SON-IN-LAW OF WIDDOW SARAH BELL AND SHE OWNED THE PEACH ORCHARD. HE WAS TENDING IT FOR HER. IT IS TOLD THAT HE WAS TOO OLD TO FIGHT IN THE WAR AND THAT HE AND HIS FAMILY FLED UNTIL THE FIGHTING WAS OVER. AFTERWARD SHE WENT DOWN TO PITTSBURG LANDING AND HAD A CABIN MOVED IN THERE TO REPLACE THE ONE THAT BURNED. I GOT THIS INFORMATION FROM THE SHILOH CEMETERY TOUR INFORMATION. ONE OF THE CARETAKERS OF THE NATIONAL CEMETERY THERE WAS MY FATHER-IN-LAW'S UNCLE BEN WHO HAD LOST A HAND. WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU ON SOME MORE GEORGE INFO. MY FATHER-IN-LAW WAS BORN AT CHILDRESS HILL WHICH IS JUST A FEW MILES FROM SHILOH. THERE IS ALSO A GEORGE CEMETERY AT MICHY TENNESSEE WHICH PRONOUNCED LIKE MICKEY. I HAVE FOUND THAT NEARLY EVERY GEORGE FAMILY HAS REPEATED NAMES OVER AND OVER AGAIN SO IT IS VERY CONFUSING FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE COMING IN BEHIND TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF ALL THIS.
