There were several apparently unrelated GEORGE immigrants who settled in Massachusetts and New Hampshire during the early colonial period. In addition, there are a number of other GEORGE lines that trace back to the middle and southern colonies.
If your friend is descended from the Amos GEORGE about whom you originally inquired, then her line goes back to the immigrant James GEORGE, who came to Essex County, Massachusetts in the 1640s. The "George Genealogy" book devotes 309 pages to James GEORGE and his posterity, and lists 2422 descendants through 13 generations -- far more data than I could practicably furnish to you (even were I not constrained by copyright considerations). However, her Oscar P. GEORGE, b. approx 1820 in Ohio, does not appear in the index, so it is quite possible -- even likely -- that she does not fit into this line at all.
I'm sorry that I cannot be of more help, and I wish you luck in your research. If you need any specific lookups in the "George Genealogy" book, please let me know. Remember, though, that this book deals only with four New England lines -- there are an awful lot of GEORGE lines which are not represented therein.
