George Egbert ("G.E.") Brunger was born in Davenport, Iowa on March 3rd, 1884, to Charles H. Brunger and Lenora Alderman. Prior to marrying Helen, George was married in 1904 to Minnie Lione Laird of La Fayette, Illinois, and George and Minnie had three children who survived into adulthood: Vivian, Carlton, and Florence. George eventually divorced Minnie and went to live east, for a time in or near Washington, D.C., promoting his scientific Roquarian Institute to officials in the nation's capital, proposing a statistical and numerical system of identification and categorization which was the precursor to the UPC bar Code system and SOcial Security ID numbering system.
After coming east he eventually married Helen and resided in Manassas, Virginia, where he spent the remining years of his life.
G.E. had served in various vocations during his life, such as a farmhand, a train conductor, a prison guard in Jolliet, IL, as an automobile mechanic, a home electrician, and other technical pursuits, taking after his father Charles H. Brunger, who was an engineer and inventor/designer.
