In Reply to: GEORGE FAM, HANCOCK CO., OH 1840-1860 by Judith Saunders of 505

Perhaps this may help a little. The name you listed for the wife of James George may be shown on the marriage certificate as Uley Groves Valentine. However, her name was Julie Ann Valentine (nee Grove), the widow of John K. Valentine. She married John on October 6, 1835 in Pickaway County Ohio. John died sometime before her second marriage to James on April 30, 1846. She moved to Hancock probably after her first husband's death. On the 1850 census in Blanchard Township, Hancock County, Ohio she is shown living next door to Mary Sousley (nee Grove) who I believe is her sister. Mary was also married in Pickaway in 1836 to her husband Gabriel Sousley.

The children listed with the George family in 1850 include: Michael Valentine, age 14; Catherine Valentine, age 12; Elizabeth Valentine, age 10; Eliza Ann Valentine, age 8; and Mary Ann George, age 3. Apparently after the family moved to St. Joseph, Indiana around 1860 the family included Rhoda, Charles and Francis as well.

I did not notice George family members living near the couple in Blanchard, but the next time I check that census I will look for the name. But James George's information did provide that he was 33 years old in 1850 and that he was born in Pennsylvania.

Hope this will be helpful.
