I have posted here before, and am still researching the GEORGE surname in the Catawba and Cherokee tribes. I have found quite abit of information. GEORGE is, indeed, a Catawba tribe name, and has been found on Cherokee, Saponi,Seminole and Choctaw sites, as well as Delaware.
My point is, there are avery few vague references to GEORGE associated with any Native Tribe on these pages. Some of the given names on some posts are identical to some I have found.
I am rearching RICHARD M. GEORGE. He was born in 1842, unk place at the moment. His birth age was found on his Civil War pension records from Muskingum County, Ohio. He was married to Elizabeth C. Parkinson (Lizzie) in 1868, Muskingum County, Ohio. However, he is NOT the Richard M. George listed on the 1880 census of Muskingum County, Ohio. His birth date is different, as well as his ocupation and the children listed, only one had a family name that I am searching for. The main one being my Grandfather, Robert M. George born March 1874 was not listed. He had only 3 siblings, Walter, Lillie and Charles.
Family history, physical traits, and occupations all are in sinc with the Catawba Native Americans. One of their big accomplishments was pottery. My Grandfather was a master potter for the Weller and Roseville potteries. Richard's was a coal miner, which my Grandfather quit school at 16 in 1890 when Richard died, to do himself.
Please, if any one has any information on this family, Richard's parents and siblings or anything, I would greatly appreciate exchanging with you.
The Catawba Reservation is located in S.C., but many left the area,some joined the Cherokee, others migrated to VA.,WVa, Ark, Mo.and Ohio. I am still hunting his place of birth.
Thanks, Sally Mosholder (Note: On the 1880, Elizabeth is listed as his spouse, but, it is NOT his Elizabeth.)
