Bob -- For what it may be worth, I show a George Zike born 1819, presumably in KY, married Betty Ann Linville, and died in Shelby Co, IN in 1888. It is possible that the George Zike you're looking for is a son born in nearby IL ??
The other George W. Zike I show was born 1839 in Jessamine Co, KY, married Angeline Baker, and died in Louisiana. Time frame does not match for your George W. Zike.
