We are searching for the GEORGE family which migrated from South Carolina (SC) > Benton Co., Tennessee (TN) > Fayette Co., Illinois (IL) > on into Oklahoma (OK) and Texas (TX).

I'm not sure if our lines are related. If you think they might, I'd like to exchange information with you. I did find this on your line. I'm not sure if it's ours and have found no relationship other than the same area of Vandalia, Fayette Co., IL, this is where our GEORGE line lived.
