I'm looking for information on Benjamin F. George, who with his family moved to Camden County, MO in 1852 from Casey County Kentucky. They had a son, R. P. "Dick" George, born about 1858 in Camden County, MO. The family left MO on April 1, 1860 with a train of 100 wagons headed for the Willamette Valley in Oregon. They crossed the Sikiyous Sept 17, 1860. In 1861 they lived in Jacksonville, OR, later moved to Steamboat, OR a small town at the head of the Applegate River and bought a mine there. In 1884, Dick George married Alice McVay and became residents of the Illinois River Valley. He operated a saloon in Kerbyville for about 6 years before moving his family to a ranch on Althouse Creek. He had three sons, Ben, Robert, and Loren, and one daughter Agnes (Yerke). My husband is a descendant of Duff Green George and Jehue George. Is there any relationship between them? Ironically, we live on "Dick George Road"!
