Notes for George W. & Sarah E. A. (Family)
From email correspondence with Barbara Houck (see notes for Andrew J. Pettit):
"My father... said George W. & Sarah had a son, Levi, who had a son Levi Jr. who lived in Long Beach, CA. George and Sarah also had a daughter Maude who married Will Kinney, and another son, Waller? George and Sarah must have farmed in Illinois. I have postcards from them to my grandfather dated 1916, 1919, and 1920, as well as photos by my Aunt Mary when she visited them in Illinois. George was born in 1863 in Bracken Co., married Sarah E. Pierce 10-10-1884, Fleming Co. courthouse Book P, page 121."
