I looked at your web site and I would like to know how sure you are of the ancestors of Lt. Col. John George, who married Jane Cole.
In Wingfield's book "A History of Caroline County Virginia" (published in 1924),p431 the family wrote " The history of the George family in Virginia dates back almost to the beginning of the seventeenth century, when Henry George came over from England in the good ship Assurance. Lieutenant-Colonel John George, a son of Henry George the immigrant, was granted a large tract of land on Bagley's Creek in Isle of Wight county prior to 1640 and represented Isle of Wightin the House of Burgesses in 1653."

In your genealogy you show a William George as being John's father and you show John as being the immigrant.

By the way, I am a 6th cousin to your grandmother Elizabeth Hesse; therefore, I am your 6th cousin 2 times removed. Our common ancestors were John George and Mary Jordan. Their daughter Ann is my link, and her brother Reuben is yours.
