  • Notes 
    • George is not known much by my relatives. Evidently he had the power of persuasion. He convinced my father that he was ready for marriage when he was around 3rd grade age. I think he even had a bride picked out. George went to Texas when he was a young man. I don't think any of the family ever saw him again. We heard that he died of T B at a young age.

      In the early 1940s my father Clayton paid a visit to a gypsy fortune teller at Beech Grove Indiana. Without a prompt from dad the fortune teller told him about George and told Dad he died mysteriously in Texas. Not believing in fortune telling, my dad came away from there scared.
