Hello. I am trying to get to first base with my George family research. Here's what I have:

W.P.A. George(probably born in SC) married Betsy Farer(born probably in TN)--one of their kids was David William George (1837TN-1919TX).

David William George married unknown (could be Martha McIntire born in TN) and they had at least these children: Hattie, Mable, Pink, Betty. These kids were probably born in the 1860's as Betty had the last of her 3 children in 1885 and was widowed by Neal Rich in 1887.

David William George marries the second time to Margaret Ann Moss (1853TN-1921TX). Their children are Carmel born about 1898 and Elsie Dinsmore born 1900 Johnson Co. TX-died 1989 Kerr Co. TX.

David William George is buried at the Burkett Cemetery in Coleman County, TX. In the same plot is buried David P. George (1863TN-1937TX), his wife Mary Ellen Simpson George (1868MO-1945TX). What is the relationship between David William and David P.? Also buried with them is David P.'s daughter, Maud Lee (1888-1970) and her husband Calvin Baker (1884-1972).

It is known that David P. George had 4 children: Jesse L., R. Ervin, Maud Lee and another daughter. David P. was blind in the last years of his life and spent them near Albany TX (Shackleford County). Jesse L. was the youngest (born 1897 Clinton, Hunt Co.TX) and as an adult operated some ready to wear stores around Ballinger TX (George's Ready-to-Wear). It was said that when David P. was about 14 (1877) he took off from Memphis to St. Louis MO with a load of hogs, sold them, and made his way to Texas.

Betty George, daughter of David William George and his first wife had at least 3 children with her husband, Neal Rich: Carey, Lyle and Ernest (1885). At the time of Ernest's death (1968) in Callahan Co. TX, it was said that his sister was still living in East TX (possibly Hunt Co.).

If anyone has information on this group of people, make me a happy woman and contact me with the news. I thank you in advance for your help.
