Birth: Jul. 26, 1859
Tipton County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Nov. 26, 1939
Tipton County
Tennessee, USA

Born to Henry Yarbro Billings (1825-1885) of NC & Nancy Smith Billings (1834-1917), who married in Tipton County, TN, on Aug. 1, 1855.

George Billings' death certificate shows his mother as Fannie Wortham, but this is incorrect since Nancy Billings was the wife of Henry Y. Billings from the 1860 through 1880 censuses of Tipton County.

George married 1) Ada V. Keller (1863-1887) on Nov. 30, 1882, in Lauderdale County, TN.

Three children:
Ida Daughtry Billings Smith (1883-1903)
Henry Suber Billings (1886-1960)
infant son Billings (1887-1887). Ada died at age 23 as a result of the birth of this child.

George married 2) Rosa E. Smith (1861-1905) on Nov. 7, 1888, in Tipton County.

William Walter Billings (1892-1963; Memorial# 116923672)

George married 3) Mary Florence "Flora" Taylor (1877-1926) on Dec. 17, 1905, in Tipton County.

Four children:
Alpha Mabel Billings Thomas (1/1/1907-11/23/2000 in Memphis, TN; m. Haley Hobson Thomas on 7/2/1927)
Seth Ward Billings (1909-1948)
Edward Carmack Billings (1910-1979)
James Woodrow Billings (9/27/1920-7/11/1921).

Florence may have been visiting family in Simpson County, KY, where she was from, when she died there in Sept. 1926. She was brought back to Covington, TN, for burial.

George married 4) Dora Coats on Dec. 22, 1926, in Tipton County. I have not located Dora.

George married 5) Mrs. Maude Temple on Jan. 23, 1929, in Lauderdale County, TN, who was his wife when he died. I have not located Maude Billings, but she died on Jan. 17, 1954.
