Birth: 1814
New York, USA
Death: Oct. 28, 1890
Sonora
Tuolumne County
California, USA

George came to Sonora prior to 1860 to begin a 30-year career as probably Sonora's longest-running saddle and harness maker. During Sonora's major commercial district fire of 7 Aug 1861, George was burned out with a loss of $2500. He rebuilt his shop on Washington Street near today's courthouse park and worked with Tuolumne County's other long-time saddle and harness maker, William Henry Field, for five years. They were the sole advertisers for their trade in Sonora in the Pacific Coast Directory of 1867.
The C.H. Burden Undertaking Company buried George the day following his death.
