Jack, I agree with you.When I went to my Family Tree Maker, I saw my old posting saying that I did not think that there were the "same George Feltys".Here's what I have under my notes.
"From "1850 Census of Washington County, Virginia...Annotated", information on his death and children's marriages.

I am not comfortable with the above information.I am afraid that Geo. W. Felty that married Margaret Hurt, might not be this Geo. W. Felty.
