Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 371, Monon Township, White County, Indiana

"GEORGE SAYLOR was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, November 22, 1807, and is a son of GEORGE and POLLY (FRIESTONE) SAYLOR. MR. SAYLOR, Sr., was by trade a blacksmith, and had done some farming. GEORGE attended school and worked on the paternal farm until nineteen years old, and then worked exclusively on the farm. On December 9, 1830, he married ELIZABETH COCHANOUR, by whom he had one child, JACOB (deceased). MRS. SAYLOR died May 22, 1834, and on January 15, 1835, he married REBECCA UMBERGER, of York County, Pennsylvania, by whom he had seven children - DAVID, GEORGE, ELIZABETH, MARY A., JOHN L. (deceased), SAMUEL H. (deceased), and ISAAC F. In 1843, he came to this township and purchased 120 acres of wild land, on which he made a home and which he improved and cultivated. In addition to his farm produce he raises some stock. MRS. SAYLOR died October 18, 1872; she was a member of the Christian Church.
