George W. Bolsinger was the middle child, with one older sister, Phoebe, and one elder brother, William and two younger brothers, John and James. Their parents John Bolsinger and Elizabeth Higginbotham were of German descent and had met in German Township, Fayette Co. Pennsylvania. George's father, John, had worked with his father, George, at a store that George had began, known as Balsinger's Stand. George W. also worked there until he became schooled in his craft as a stonemason. He was known to be a good businessman.

He married Anne Fisher on July 8th, 1835. They had five surviving children at his death; Eliza Ann,(married Philip F. Roberts); George William Fisher, ( married Susan Margaret Weaver); Elizabeth,(did not marry); Newton Craft, married three times, the last being Georgie with whom he had two children); and John Edward "Elliott", (who married Frances Louise Armstrong). Anne died on April 16, 1848.

George remarried to a Sarah Coulter on Sept. 27, 1849. They had three children; Mary Jane,(married John Ensley), Hester Bradon,(married Jesse Frost) and John.

George W. followed his trade of stonemasonary in German Township for a number of years while also conducting a successful farm in that locality and being active in township affairs. He built the foundation under the Round corner building. It was still standing 60 years later on his death. He also built the Tremont building in 1852 and the vault in the First National Bank. He was known as a skilled and honest workman. He moved to Uniontown about 12 yrs, before his death and stayed there until his end. George W. suffered with rheumatism which added to his feebleness in his advanced years. His obit says he was interred at Oak Grove Cemetery in Uniontown.

Great, great, grandfather, your son Elliott carried your and Anne's and your children's names and dates in a Blue Notebook. It came down to me and was the begining of my search for our roots. You will always be special to me for that reason. Dona
