hELLO: I AM RICHARD L GEORGE LIVING IN WESTERN PENN. SOME 10 MILES EAST OF PITTSBURGH. PERHAPS I CAN HELP IN A SEARCH FOR WILLIAM GEORGE. MY GRANDFATHER, NICKOLAS TREWEEK GEORGE CAME WITH HIS FAMILY TO THE USA IN 1900. HE WAS FROM THE PARRAN-AR-WORTHAL, PARRANWELL AREA OF CORNWALL. BOTH ARE VILLAGES LOCATED NEAR FALMOUTH. IT WAS HIS SECOND VISIT TO THE USA BECAUSE, MY AUNT JESSIE WAS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN WHEN HE CAME HERE IN 1900 WITH MY FATHER ALBERT AND MY UNCLE GERALD. MY GRANDFATHER AND FATHER BOTH WORKED IN THE STEEL INDUSTRY IN THE PITTSBURGH AREA. I KNOW THAT THE GEORGES OF CORNWALL GO BACK TO THE 1600'S. I HAVN'T YET FIGURED OUT WHO MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS ALTHOUGH I HAVN'T TRIED A GENOLOGY SEARCHER IN CORNWALL.
FAMILY ORAL TRADITION HAS IT THAT NICOLAS SPENT SOME TIME IN AFRICA PERHAPS INVOLVED IN MINING SINCE THE CORNISH TIN MINES WERE PLAYING OUT AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY. I
NCIDENTALLY, I VISITED CORNWALL IN 1955 WHILE IN THE USAF BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, I WASN'T INTERESED IN GENEOLOGY AT THAT TIME
