Reuben and Nancy (McCotter) GEORGE Jr. and Enoch and Jane (McCotter) GEORGE were sons of Reuben GEORGE Sr. of Butler County Ohio.

The brothers brought their families west to Andrew County in the mid to later 1840s. When the Kansas Territory opened to white settlement in the later 1850s, members from both families crossed the Missouri River due west from Andrew County to help settle Doniphan County Kansas.

Enoch and most of his children returned to Andrew County, but Reuben stayed the rest of his life in Doniphan County Kansas.
