Col. John George (1603-1679) of Virginia

Hi folks,

Marty Grant here. Forgive me if this is a duplicate. I couldn't recall whether I had already posted this or not. I am currently about 90% finished with my long awaited book on the descendants of Col. John George of Isle of Wight Co., VA. The book is fairly large, but I feel there is much I'm leaving out just due to lack of information.

I wanted to make a plea for information. I have been studying the family for over 20 years so I have tons of documentation already but there may be something new I've never seen. If anyone has any new or interesting documentation on Col. John's family or descendants please let me know. You can visit my website to see what I already have (though the pages are out of date, much is there.)

The family extended into many states particularly TN, KY, TX and others.

Nicholas George of Lancaster's family will be mentioned in the book but not much included for his family is larger than Col. Johns, so he needs his own book! (hint hint for someone to write one!) I'll let you know when the book is ready, but I didn't want to pass up an opportunity to get any new data. Can anyone help with this one nagging question:

Is there any DOCUMENTATION showing who Col. John George's parents were? I've seen lots of names, but never any documentation.

Is there conclusive proof that he is the same John George, Yeoman of Writtle, Essex Co., England, named in the 1623 Will of Humphries Cole as son-in-law?

Thanks for any help offered. Visit my web pages for more data:
