The William and Mary Maddox Cure family lived in Luzerne and Tioga Counties, PA. before migrating to Mt. Pleasant, Henry Co., Iowa when George was 17. George lived there until November 20, 1861 at which time he enlisted in the 4th Iowa Cavalry, Co. D, and reenlisted December 12, 1863, serving until the close of the Civil War. He had reached the rank of Sargeant upon his discharge.
After their marriage on May 2, 1875, George and "Docia" lived near Mt. Pleasant where their two oldest children were born. The family migrated to Kansas in 1878, being one of the early settlers. They homesteaded 80 acres in Republic Co., just south of the Warwick bridge and bounded on the north by the Republican River.
After the death of his wife, George moved to Republic, Ks. to live with his daughter, Estella Elliott. In 1906, the Elliotts moved to Norton Co., Kansas and George moved with them. They returned to Republic Co. four years later.
George died of heart failure in Enid, Oklahoma while visiting his sister. His sons accompanied his body on the train from Enid to Republic. His funeral services were held at the United Brethren Church and he was buried beside his wife in Rose Mound Cemetery.
