Looking for info concerning my great-grandfather, Richard George, who came from England in the late 1800's to work in the mines in America. First settled in Amsterdam, New York and then moved to Villa Rica, Georgia to work in the gold mines. All the info that we have is a letter dated 1911 from a daughter from his first marriage. Her name was Lucy (George) Whipple and she was married to C.W. Whipple. She mentioned sisters, Bessie and Emily and a brother John. We believe that he came from the Cornwall region of England.
