Hi Barbara,

You could be absolutely correct about who the John and Nicholas were in
that importation record.

For my book I was sorely tempted to do more than just a short chapter on
the Georges of Lancaster Co., VA, but there just wasn't room to do any
justice to that extensive family. Nicholas George needs his own book!

I would like to do a general "George Families of Virginia" book someday.
It would cover all that can be found on the early (pre-1850) Georges in
that state. It could be a useful resource to many George researchers. It
would be quite a job though. It isn't in the cards anytime soon though.
Of course a book like that would need companion volumes such as Georges
of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky. etc. Could turn
into a multi volume epic.

Have enjoyed your book on John's family. I have one correction--about the Nicholas and John who came over in the early 1650's. I am quite sure they were Nicholas II and an unknown John, schoolboys returning to Virginia under the aegis of the captain of the ship, who was a neighbor of Nicholas I. This John became part of the extended George family, leaving his worldly goods to Sarah when he died. Barbara
