St. Clair Co. IL. deed & probate records indicate that there was more than one (1) GEORGE ATCHISON in St. Clair Co. IL. in the early 1800's. A deed dated 7 June 1803 between George Atchison & Hannah, his wife, of St. Clair Co. sells land to Samuel Shook. A deed dated 22 Oct. 1813 between George Atchison & Elizabeth his wife to Michael Atchison sells land located in St. Clair Co., "being the real Estate of George Atchison, deceased, late of the County aforesaid". So in 1813 one (1) George Atchison is deceased, a 2nd. George Atchison is selling real estate that was owned by the 1st. George Atchison.Perhaps the 2nd. George Atchison & Michael Atchison are sons of the 1st. George Atchison. The last will & testament of GEORGE ATCHISON, St. Clair Co. IL. dated 16th February, 1832, names his wife Elisabeth Atchison & son, JEHUE ATCHISON, as executors. Will also mentions other children but does not name them. My 3rd. Gr. Grandfather, MATHEW ATCHISON, wrote his will in St. Clair Co. IL. in 1823 and named a son, GEORGE ATCHISON. So the given name, GEORGE, seems to be popular among the ATCHISON Clan.
