Rebecca, My George's did come from Kentucky. As far as I "know" they lived in Buchanan County. There could be a connection as the latest George I have George, George H. or 11 came from Kentucky. I do not know who his father or siblings were so we may have a connection through Ky.
I have a William George b. abt 1853 Mo who in 1870 was 17 living with Woodford and Rebecca George. Woodford may have been an uncle due to a death of which I have the records for that indicated that Woodford took him and his brothers in as guardian.
I also have James P. George in my line from Buchanan County.
Please write me at home so we can investigate further.
