Originally a mariner from Suffolk, England (probably from the town of Blythburgh), George moved to Sunderland in County Durham.
"After marrying [Margaret Park in County Durham, England], George worked as a coal miner [in Durham] until 1870 when he signed-on to an ocean-going freighter bound for Boston. He jumped ship in Boston and found his way to Nanticoke in Pennsylvania's anthracite coal fields. His family joined him in 1871 and it [is] here they lived their lives."
— David Bache
According to his death certificate, his occupation was "Fire Boss" [a safety officer charged with checking the workings for flammable gasses and issuing safety lamps within the coal mine].
