Mary Jane Tingler and George Washington Persinger
I am seeking information on George Washington Persinger (son of Sallie Persinger) born May 5, 1819 in Botetourt County, VA (Now Alleghany). He married Mary Jane Tingler on March 1, 1851 in Alleghany County, Va. In 1860, he and Mary are in Craig County, Va with the following children: Jacob 8, Rena J 6, Louis C 5, John 10mon. Geo's occupation is carpenter. In 1870 they are in the Mason Co., WV census with the following children: Jacob W. 18, Arena J 15, Lewis C 13, John S 11, Maria G 9 and Russel B 1. Geo.'s occupation was Blacksmith. In 1880 they are in the Cabell Co, WV census with only Russell, 11 remaining in the household.
I am curious at to where George was prior to 1850. I would also like information on his children and their descendents.
George's Mother was Sarah "Sallie" Persinger and his father was a Cherokee Indian names "Sparrow" or "Sparrowhawk".
George has the following known sibilings: Gabriel, Eli, Mary, Jane, and Phoebe.
