Things to Note:

  • Mary George was 56 in 1880, making her born about 1824 in North Carolina.
  • Mary George’s parents were both born in Scotland.

NEXT TO DO: Look for Daniel Ball George in the 1900 US Federal Census. His wife should not appear with him, as I have her listed as dying in 1897.

Family Background

Let’s get this started by getting to know a little about the immediate family of Enoch and Cynthia George.
Enoch Ben George and Cynthia Autrey were married on Oct 3, 1820 in Saint Clair County, Alabama. On October 8, 1821 they had their daughter, Rebecca George, in Alabama. I really don’t have much information on her.

Daniel Ball George was born on February 14, 1823 in Floralla, Covington, Alabama. In 1845 he married Mary McSween. Together they had 7 children.

Susanna M. George was born September 18, 1824 in Clayton, Barbour, Alabama. She married Randall McNair and together they had 11 children.

Rachel George was born June 24, 1829 in Alabama. I also do not have much information on her.

Enoch Ben George was born November 14, 1831 in Saint Clair County, Alabama. In 1857 he married Mary A. Deweese in New Braunfels, Comal, Texas. They had 4 children. On November 12, 1868 he married Caroline Sattler in New Braunfels, Comal, Texas. Together they had 3 children. They later divorced. On March 1, 1874 he married Mary Anne McNamar in Sequin, Comal, Texas. Together they had 8 more children. That totals 15 children for Enoch and his wives.

Nancy George was born December 10, 1833 in Alabama. Again, I do not have much information on her.

Moses Andrew George was born October 3, 1835 in Florala, Covington, Alabama. On December 28, 1853 he married Margaret Angeline Hart. Together they had 11 children. Margaret died on January 3, 1902. Moses married Susan Pettis Johnson on July 26, 1903 in Covington County, Alabama. Together they had 4 children.

Sinthia Autry George was born January 18, 1840 in Alabama. She married Solomon (Sol) Tanner on May 20, 1858 in Blanco County, Texas. Together they had 11 children.

Elizabeth Thurza Ann George was born March 7, 1842 in Alabama. She married Isaac Tanner on November 12, 1860 in Lockhart, Caldwell, Texas. Together they had 13 children.

John William Alexander George was the last child born to Enoch and Cynthia. he was born on August 15, 1845 in Alabama. He married Martha Emaline Hudson in 1866 in Blanco County, Texas. Together they had 7 children.

The George family was a very prolific family, which will make identifying and prooving all his descendants a very large challenge. I have been “given” most of the information that I have and will begin to source all the information I have. While typing this data into this blog post I have noticed some possible issues and will make a list of those later in the day.

If you see any mistakes or have documents or information that would aide me in my research, please feel free to contact me.
