I know of no connection between any of these Georges and my line, and I have nothing further on the individuals here. My earliest known George ancestor at this point is John J. George, b 1801 NC (county unknown), d aft 1850 Shannon Co MO. He did live in TN for some years, but I don't know what county the family was in. The son of his who was my direct ancestor was born 1835 in Effingham, IL.
