Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May 8, 1814
Death: Jul. 16, 1907

married to Elizabeth Ann Parsons

George was a charter member of the Red Hill United Brethern church and donated the land for that cemetery. He came to Wood County in 1852 from Frederick County, Virginia via a covered wagon over the Northwest Turnpike (old route 50) and established the old Gantz homestead which was all of the land you can see from that cemetery when the trees are barren in the winter. The homestead farm was sold in 1947 after the barn burned from a lightening strike. The back part of the farm that J C Gantz farmed is now a land fill dumping site.
