Ebenezer GEORGE 1849-1911 Wales Pennsylvania Iowa

I am looking for the Parents of Ebenezer GEORGE.

Ebenezer GEORGE was born 19 Dec 1849 in South Wales, British Isles.
He Came to US in 1880 and worked/lived in Schuylkill County PA. or Luzernce Co PA.
Moved to Iowa in 1893
Died 10 July 1911 Ward, Monroe Co. Iowa

It is said that he was a big man. Ebenezer was heavily involved in Anti-laber Union activities and had to leave both Wales and Pennsylvania because his life was threatened. The 1871 Census says he was a Puddler.

Ebenezer's grandson said that David Lloyd George, who was prime minister in 1916-1922 was a relative of Ebenezer's.

He was one of four children. His parents died when he was young and he worked the mines as a boy getting whatever education he could.

He married Jenet Parry in WALES(either 1869 or 1871)
She was born 18 Feb 1851 in Abernant- Aberdare Wales
She came to the US 13 Dec 1880 about 5 months after Ebenezer. Her children Ann 7, David Lloyd 5, William 3, Thomas Parry 2, and an infant James.

When Jenet dies her obituary says she had 14 children,6 survived to adulthood (I don't have all the names, and I've heard it was 16 children, too) In 1899 she had one sister living in Pennsylvania and one brother living in Wales.

Their children talked about these towns in Pennsylvania
"Pottsville, Gilberton, Mahoney City, Hazleton, Frackville Scranton."
