I am searching for my gr gr gr grandfather Elias George b. abt 1780, where ?. I have knowledge of two children, Dorcas George (female) b. 1801 d. May 5, 1870 and is buried in Camp Ground Cem., Pontotoc, MS. and Elias George, Jr. Dorcas m. James M. Wilson Mar. 8, 1818, Montgomery Co., AL and they had 6 children, Elias, John, James, Greenberry, Margaret, and Mary A. Wilson b. 1837 d. after 1870.Mary m. William Brown Jan. 22, 1863, Pontotoc Co., MS.They are my great grandmother and grandfather.
Many, many years ago in Tupelo, Lee Co., MS we were told that we were kin to our neighbors and close friends, David George b. 1877 and his wife, Willie Francis and their children, Felix, Jimmy who m. Martha ?, Lois who m. Neil Dorrough and their children were Neil, Clifford, Helen m. Tulane Posey, and Catherine.We never could prove we were related.
Upon reading the Descendants of James C. George b. 1804 placed on the web, I wondered if James could be a brother of Dorcas and Elias, Jr. mentioned above.Would appreciate any help.
