George Berton was born August 1, 1850 son of Joseph Breton (note different spelling) and Angeline Lafond. He married Lucie Willems (Lucy Williams) circa 1871.

The 1900 census lists number of children as twelve. Philamine, Marceline, George Napoleon, John, Jane (Jennie), Fred, Pearl Pauline, Ida (Sister Mary Claude), Louise, Clara, Marie, and the last child was not legible.

George lived at 3082 Bay Settlement Road in Green Bay and still stand. George then bought a farm near Oconto Falls, WI. George and daughter, Jane (Jennie) would travel by horse and sleigh to get the farm ready to bring the rest of the family. It's here at the same time of death of George's brother, Theophile on March 17, 1899 that Jennie saw a ghost while working at the house. George suddenly decided they'd better go back to Green Bay. When they reached Green Bay a man jumped on the runner of the sleigh and informed them that Theophile had been struck by a train while crossing the tracks with his horses and wagon. It was the same time Jennie had seen the ghost.

Stories provided by George's granddaughter, Agnes Konitzer Bridger Bast in her book called Original Konitzer Family Tree Book.
