KAY,
I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF THIS IS THE RIGHT FAMILY. CORNELIUS M. GEORGE, MY GRANDMOTHERS FATHER. I CAN NOT FIND WHERE EFFIE IRENE GEORGE IS ON ANY CENSUS RECORDS. EFFIE BEING BORN IN 1892 IN GEORGES CREEK. ONE OF MY RELATIVES SAYS THAT CORNELIUS HAD A BROTHER NAMED PETE TOO, BUT CAN'T FIND THAT EITHER. I FOUND JOHN M. GEORGE AND RHODA A. GEORGE IN THE 1870 CENSUS FOR JOHNSON COUNTY, BUT IT SAYS THAT JOHN M IS 44, AND RHODA A. IS 40, AND LISTS THE KIDS AS:
VICTORIA AGE 16
ELBERT, AGE 14
CORNELIUS, AGE 12
JOSEPHINE, AGO 9
JOHN, AGE 7
COLUMBUS, AGE 4
WILLIAM S. AGE 2
IS THIS TOTALLY A DIFFERENT FAMILY??????
IT HAS JOHN M. GEORGE AS A SADDLE MAKER.
IF I COULD JUST FIND WHERE EFFIE IS A LITTLE GIRL, AND SHOWING CORNELIUS AS HER FATHER AND TELITHA (DAVIS) GEORGE AS HER MOTHER, THEN I WOULD BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK, I THINK!!!!!!
I MADE CONTACT WITH A SALLY HAMILTON GOOSLIN, WHO'S GRANDMOTHER AND MY GRANDMOTHER WERE SISTERS, AN THEY LIVED IN THE MATEWAN AND BLACK BERRY CITY, WEST VIRGINA AREA. I FOUND WHERE EFFIE IRENE GEORGE MARRIED JESS BOYD IN 1933 IN LAWRENCE COUNTY. THEN EFFIE GEORGE BOYD DIED ON 12-15-1961, IN SOUTH WILLIAMSON, KY. I AM TOLD THAT SHE HAD SEVERAL SISTERS, ERIE, MINNIE.
ALSO A DEE ROBERTS WHO LIVES IN WILLIAMSON NOW IS A DAUGHTER OF ONE OF THE SISTERS OF EFFIE. ALSO A DIXIE ACCORD, WHO IS IN A SENIOR CITIZENS HOME IN HUNTINGTON, W.V. ALSO NAMED WAS A WILLIAM BURNS GEORGE, AND A HAROLD GEORGE JR. AND ALSO HESTER (DAVIS) GEORGE, ONE WHO CORNELIUS MARRIED AFTER BEING MARRIED TO TELITHA (DAVIS) GEORGE. TELITHA AND HESTER WERE SISTERS. ERIE GEORGE WEBB WAS MARRIED AT ONE TIME TO A FRED MONROE WEBB. ERIE AND FRED GOT A DIVORCE AND THEN ERIE MARRIED A JIM SMITH. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT DIXIE ACCORD IS ON THE TAPE THAT IS USED AT MATEWAN, TO DESCRIBE THE FIGHTING AND KILLING DURING THE COAL MINE WARS, IN THAT AREA, IN THE EARLY TWENTIES!
KAY I DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO NEXT, IF YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE, PLEASE DO.
THANK YA
DAVID F. GEORGE
