George was the son of Andrew Rhines and Sarah "Sally" Stean.
He married in 1827 to Frances Keppel.

He owned a very profitable lumber business. He would take his lumber to be sold in Pittsburgh by raft by way of the Clarion River. On one of these trips, word was sent back to Frances that her husband had died of Cholera several weeks before in Wattersonville and was buried nearby. The money from the sale of his lumber was never returned to the family as it surely would have been in those days. So many family members suspected that he had been murdered for his money. - Source: Teresa Shaffer
