In my George data base I have a Joel Sanford George b. August 17, 1848, d. January 7, 1925 who married Martha Swittenberg. This Joel was son of Andrew George b. ca 1817 and Nancy Rister. Andrew was son of Lewis (Ludwig) George and Becky Stuck. Nancy was daughter of Adam Rister and Kate George. All of the folks were in Lexington Co, SC. This should give you some leads.
