I am researching a William W. George b. in SC in 1810. What I know of his father, John George, sounds similar to this Alexander George and I'm wondering if there might be a connection between them. John George was born in Ireland and came to South Carolina as a child. In 1816 he removed to Kentucky, and then in 1824 removed to Gallatin County, Illinois. He lived there and in White County, Illinois the remainder of his life. He also fought in the Black Hawk War.
