Thank you very much! It gives me more to work with.
George and Margaret's son, Charles Seymore Bostic is the father of Wilhoite Bruce Bostic who was married to my aunt, Mary Eliza Epperson. Charles' wife's full maiden name was Minnie Pearl Wilhoite. I have a copy of both Charles and Minnie's death certificates and how I found the names of their parents. They died here in Los Angeles, California.
I've been looking at the census for Cool Spring and noticed that George T. Bostic(k) listed Georgia as his birth place on the 1880 and 1900 census.
