George Aaron Bourne has also been listed as George Aron Bourn in various documents.

s/o Stephen R. (Red) Bourn(e) and Amelia (Millie) Martin.

George and Margaret were married in 1853. Together, they had seven (currently known) children.

George and Margaret lived and raised their family in first, Grayson County and then Smyth County, VA. Sometime between the 1880 Census and that of 1900, they moved to Washington Twp., Preble County, OH. Their son, Oscar, and his wife, Lizzie and grandson, Ira, are listed as living with them at this time. George and Margaret's son,James Shelby (Shelly) and daughter, Elizabeth Jane Bourn(e) Bowers are also in this area from Virginia at this time.

By 1910, George is living with his son James where he remains until his death.

Though details of George's Civil War service vary a bit between the book, "Stephen Bourn and Rosamond Mallory Descendents - Related Families, 1650-1982" by Lura Elizabeth Cutchshaw and "Grayson Countians in the Civil War" the information is close enough to appear that both sources are referencing the same individual.

George enlisted in Confederate service Apr. 24, 1861 or March 20, 1862. He was a member of the Grayson County Daredevils and was wounded at Cedar Creek (Cedar Mountain), August 9, 1862. "He was taken POW at Spotsylvania C.H. on May 12, 1864 and sent to Elmira, N.Y. He was released on oath on June 23, 1865. He was 5'9", had blue eyes, dark hair and fair complexion."

From "Civil War Compiled Military Service Records" comes the Civil War Service Record of George A. Bourn. It shows that he was a member of Company F., 4 Virginia Infantry Unit. He enlisted as a Private and was discharged a Private. His allegiance was to the Confederacy."

"The Grayson County Daredevils was an 1861 militia unit from the mountains of Southwestern Virginia which became part of the 4th Virginia." From the "Richmond Daily Whig."

Note: Small stones containing the inscriptions "Mother" and "Father" next to son's (J. Shelly Bourne) stone which contain the birthdates I previously had found through other sources convince me that these are the markers for George Aaron and wife Margaret
