I found a newspaper article on Ancestry from The Landsmark, Statesville NC, Tuesday, February 25, 1896. It states that George Fite dropped dead on Saturday a week ago. Mrs Everett Fite found him in her front yard. This article was from The Democrat. Does anyone know the last name of George's wife? Her first name was Susan E (?). George was born about 1812. His parents were David Fite and Frances Allen Cathey.
