Date: Fri, 19 Nov 1999 17:13:48 EST

We are new to the GEORGE list. This is our first query to this list. We are
researching our great grandfather Andrew Jackson GEORGE and his wife Mary Ann


Generation No. 1

1. ANDREW JACKSON1 GEORGE was born 2 Dec 1849 in TN, and died 11 Feb 1916 in
Katie, Garvin Co., OK. He married MARY ANN HOPKINS 17 Aug 1873 in Ozark Co.,

Ozark Co., MO
Andrew Jackson George married Mary Ann Hopkins on 17 Aug 1873 (I believe this
to be our ancestors - not proven - mgp. Their names are correct and the date
seems most likely and the State is most likely)

1920 Okfuskee Co., OK Census, vol. 56, E.D. 145, Sheet 5, Line 67*
Maryan George, White, age 60, b: AR
Enumerated with: Ben L. Adkins
Relationship to above: Mother-in-law
(* A. J. is not listed in the 1920 census because of his death in 1916. Mary
Ann is shown living with her daughter Minnie May Adkins and her husband Ben
L. Adkins. Mary Ann's age in 1920 should have been 64 not 60 and I believe
her place of birth would be TN but not proven with the exception of the 1910

1910 Garvin Co., OK Census, 021, 0071, 0146*
Audo George, White, age 61, b: TN
May George, Wife, age 54, b: TN
Frank George, son, age 10, b: TX
Gertie Anthony, dau., age 25, b: AR
Roy Anthony, Grandson, age 3, b: TX
(* Apparently with transcription of census records the names of Andrew and
Mary were transcribed incorrectly. The names should Andrew and Mary)

1900 Census - I believe the George family was in Milford, Ellis Co., TX
during this census. I have ordered the census from the library.

1890 Census - All census records were distroyed for this year.

1880 Census - I assumed the George family was living in MO this year since
Minnie May (daughter) was born in MO on 1882. I checked the entire MO Census
and they were not living there or in anyone else's household in the state. I
believe they may have been living in either AR or TN. I have ordered the AR
Census from the library for this year.

1870 Freeborn Twp., Clarkton P.O., Dunklin Co., MO Census, pg. 724 (taken on

Harriet George, age 37, F, white, Keeping house, b: TN, cannot write
Lucinda Myracle, age 16, F, white, b: TN
John Myracle, age 9, M, white, b: TN

1860 Census - Living in their parents home. This would be the first census
Mary Ann would show up since she was born 1856 in TN. All George and Hopkins
household would have to be viewed.

1850 Census - A. J. would be 1 year old during this census. It would most
likely be TN. All George household's would have to be viewed.

Andrew Jackson "Jack" George is buried in Katie Cemetery, Katie, Garvin Co.,
OK, his tombstone reads A. J. George Born Dec 2, 1849, Died Nov 2 1916 and
has a Mason stone.

* * *
After A. J. died in 1916 his house, ranch or acreage and belongings was sold
off by his wife, Mary lived with her children until her death in either
Wetumka, Hughes Co., OK or Weleetka, Okfuskee Co., OK. On the 1920 she was
found in the household of Ben L. Adkins and Minnie May Adkins (dau.).

3. GERTIE2 GEORGE (ANDREW JACKSON1) was born Abt 1885 in AR. She married //
ANTHONY Bef 1907 in Prob. TX.

Gertie George was born abt 1885 in AR, she married a man by the last name of
Anthony, his first name is unknown. They had one son named Roy George which
was born abt 1907 in Texas.

Apparently, Gertie's husband either ran off and left her while living in
Texas or he was being really mean to her. She contacted her father, A. J.
George, and he went down to Texas (probably Ellis Co., TX) to bring her back
to Oklahoma where the George family was living. When he got down there,
Gertie was living in a tent and was about starved to death and the baby was
real sick. She came back to Oklahoma with her father without her husband.

On 14 Jul 1909, she was a witness to her brother, Charlie George's marriage
to Emma Saladin and she stated on the license that she was a resident of
Wetumka, Hughes Co., OK. She may have been living in her sister, Minnie May
George-Adkins and brother in law, Ben L. Adkins, household since they lived
in Wetumka, Hughes Co., OK and Ben L. Adkins was the second witness on the
marriage certificate.

In the 1910 census of Garvin Co., OK, she and her son, Roy Anthony, was shown
living in her parents household.

I assume she got divorced from her husband, ? Anthony, most likely while she
was living in Hughes or Garvin Co., OK.

Child of Gertie George and // Anthony is:
i. ROY3 ANTHONY, b. Abt 1907, TX.

4. CHARLES MATHEW2 GEORGE (ANDREW JACKSON1) was born 22 Dec 1889 in Holcomb,
Dunklin Co., MO, and died 1 Aug 1970 in Weleetka, Okfuskee Co., OK. He
married EMMA LOU SALADIN 14 Jul 1909 in Okfuskee Co., OK, daughter of William
Saladin and Sarah Randle.

L. Adkins and Gertie Anthony both of Wetumka, OK.

There is an obituary for Charles Matthew George, husband of Emma Lous Saladin
George, in the Oklahoma Historical Society Library. He died in 1970. He had a
brother named Frank "of Oklahoma City". His father died in 1917, and his
mother remarried Drew Morton, son of Frank Morton. This all according to the
