Robin,
Have since found Albert Peyton George married Mary Elizabeth "Mamie" Davis Oct. 7, 1896. She is daughter of John Harris Pickens Davis and Susan Elizabeth Ryon.
Albert Peyton George born Oct. 7, 1873 and died April 4, 1955. Albert & Mary (Davis) George had one only child, Davis George who died of infant cholera at age 22 months.
This death, and the death of Mary (Davis) George's cousin, Mary Jones in 1943, left them with no immediate heirs. So, in 1945 they created the George Foundation to carry on benevolent endeavors previously begun. Go to http://www.thegeorgefoundation.org/a.htm and also http://www.georgeranch.org/jpdhist1.htm for more info. Apparently the George Ranch is in Fort Bend Co. Texas. These sites mention that Albert George's grandfather came to Texas in the 1830's (Ezekial George).
