I did find your grandfather George in the Social Security Death Index. His SSN is 274-20-8424. He received his SSN in Ohio. He may have been born there.
I also found an Anna Rebich in Memphis, Shelby, TN. She was born 17 May 1888 and died in May 1981 in Memphis, TN. This could be your great-grandmother. Her SSN is 409-08-5937. Anna received her SSN in TN but not until 1973. So she may have been born elsewhere.
I am telling you all of this so you can send for the Social Security application. It will give you more information on the applicant.
You can send the following letter to the:
