Birth: Dec. 28, 1839
Far West
Caldwell County
Missouri, USA
Death: Feb. 28, 1856
Utah County
Utah, USA

Son of John Winn and Christina Finch

George was baptized a member of the LDS Church in Lehi, Utah in 1854. He resided in Lehi until the time of his death.

In the winter of 1855 he was called to go out west of Utah Lake and herd cattle for the people of Lehi. While there in company with others (presumably the Weeks boys) the Indians came upon them and killed them. George was 18 years of age.

According to Mathias Peterson, one of the early settlers of Lehi, he relates of the burial of these boys. He said that the bodies of these three boys were brought in from the lake and were buried in one large grave in Lehi's first cemetery.

Tues. 26óJohn Carlin and another man were killed, and Geo. Winn was mortally wounded by Indians, near Kimball's Creek, southwest of Utah Lake. Capt. Peter Conover, with eighty men, soon afterwards crossed Utah Lake on the ice and pursued the hostile tribe into Tintic Valley, where he recovered some of the stock stolen by the savages.
