George W. George was born July 15, 1831, in Fayette County, Ind. There he was reared on the farm and received a fair common school education for that day. At the age of twenty-one years,he began life on his own responsibility. His circumstances were limited, for his father died when George was about one year old on October 14, 1832, leaving a large family, none of whom had yet arrived at their majority. On arriving at his majority he engaged in farming, and by industry and perseverance, he was very successful.
November 15,1860, he chose for his life companion, Olive Knipe, daughter of Edward and Irena (Beeson) Knipe. She was born August 12, 1841, in Posey Township, Fayette County, Ind., where she was reared. This union is blessed with a daughter, Ida E., born August 7, 1864.
On the 8th of April 1861, he moved upon the farm where he now resides, which he purchased in June 1855. All improvements have been added by Mr. Manlove, as well as some additions to his farm, which now consists of 160 acres, well improved and under a high state of cultivation. He also owns 180 acres of fine farmland in Fayette County, and also a farm in the State of Missouri. Mr. Manlove is one of the progressive farmers of Washington Township, and farming has been his life occupation. In politics, he is a staunch Republican, and cast his first vote for Gen. Winfield Scott in 1852. He is now actively engaged in managing his farms, which requires most of his time.
