Below my name you will find an email I received from James. Within this
information is William George's family line. The Harrison George, I believe
is the father of Amelia Sibba George who married James Edward Rogers born
1744 of Shinnston, Harrison County, Virginia, of whom I am a descendant.

If you have or find any information on Amelia Sibba George, I would be
very greatful, because many researchers have yet to find anything about her.
It was only recently that I realized that her last name was in fact George. I
have been transcribing a very old, large family journal of genealogical
information and stories. If I can find Amelia Sibba George and prove her
parents, I believe I can connect a great deal more information for the family.

Dear Thomas,

I don't know if this Harrison George, son of Martin George, is your
Harrison George. But since this is an uncommon name, it may well be. Ref:
"Abstracts Lancaster County, Virginia, Wills 1653-1800," by Ida J. Lee,
pg. 96: "GEORGE, Martin. Apprais. & Division of est. June 1787. Rec.
17 Dec. 1787. Heirs: Widow her 1/3, Harrison George, William George,
Joseph Hubbard, John Thrall, Rawleigh George, Zamouth George, Tarpley
George. Division by: Henry Lawson; Isaac Degge, Lawson Hathaway & Henry
Hinton. W.B. 22, p. 161."

Martin George is the son of William George (b. Abt. 1699 VA; d. Bef. 16 May
1760 VA) and Rebecca Martin -- my 6th great grandparents. William George
is the son of William George (b. Abt. 1670 VA; d. 1709 VA) and Elizabeth
Carter, the daughter of Capt. Thomas Carter and Katherine Dale.

Katherine Dale's sister, Elizabeth Dale, married William Rogers (b. Abt.
1655; d. 1714 VA), the son of John Rogers (b. Abt. 1620; d. Bef. 21 Jul
1680) and Ellen ____ .

While I don't have any additional information on this Harrison George, I do
have quite a bit on the GEORGE, CARTER and ROGERS family. So, whether we
have a match or not, you are welcome to any information that I may have on
these families. I can prepare a GEDCOM file, or if you happen to be using
Family Tree Maker, I can create an .FTW file for you. Just let me know.

And of course if we do have a match (with Harrison George or the Rogers'
family), I would love to have any information which you are willing to

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
