I'm sorry, I don't have anything at all on your George, although there are a few Van Cotts in my program. Have you tried the Van Cott board to see if you can find any info that way? Heritage Quest is offered free in many libraries if you have a library card. Maybe you can find George that way? I must say, though, Ancestry's census records have a much broader search range - with HQ, you have to type in the EXACT spelling. Good luck.
