Norma:Based on extensive research conducted by many Railsback descendants, and published by Railsback Desc. Assn. (RDA), I believe that your line is from Henry Railsback, rather than John.George D. Railsback was born in 1857, Estill Co., KY; d. 1938, Spokane, WA;Married 23 Dec. 1879 to Samantha Kelsey.George was a son of James T. Railsback, born in Clark Co., KY, 1828;Died in 1919, Caldwell Co., MO;Married 21 Feb. 1853, Estill Co., KY. to Mary Ann Reed, b. 1836;died in 1902, Caldwell Co., MO.James T. Railsback was a son of David Railsback, b. 1808, KY; d. 1887, Daviess Co., MO;Married Mary Vaughn, 26 Dec. 1826, Clark Co., KY.David Railsback was probably a son of Daniel Railsback and Elizabeth Dossee, who married on 27 February 1796 in Surrey Co., NC.Daniel Railsback was a son of Henry Railsback and Anna Maria Euteneuer.Daniel was named in the Will of Henry Railsback, Will Book G; Pages 406-408, Rowan Co., NC; filed for Probate in February of 1816.Henry was born 'Henrich' in 1736 in Eisern;married Anna Maria Euteneuer, 13 Sept. 1757, who was Bapatized in 1739, Rinsdorf.The above information can be found in RDA Newsletters - #2;#4;#6,and in Railsback Lines, April 1984.Hope this Helps.Susan Pottenger White
