I am still trying to find out the names of the parents of my great grandfather George Withington.
George was born about 1810 in Pittsburgh, PA and moved with his wife Nancy Harsbarger (Harshberger ?) Withington to Wisconsin between 1853 and 1857 or so. They had 6 children. Only the youngest one (Oliver) was born in WI and the rest were born in PA. Albert Wilson Withington is my grandfather, Fred is my father. George, Nancy and family lived in the Mt Hope, Millville, WI areas. George died appr 1891 possibly in Bagley, WI.
It is stated that he is buried in the Bethlehem cemetary near Mt Hope alongside his son Albert. I have seen Albert's headstone but do not remember seeing anything with George on it. He probably did not have a headstone and may not even have a birth certificate.
Does anyone have any information on George or who his parents were? There are some other George's out there but the dates do not match and it does not appear that they had any children named George that would match the dates either. Thank you for any help you can give me. I have a lead on some libraries and genealogical societies that may have old newspapers that I can check and other sources in person, but thought I would try here too.
