George was a native of Ohio, having been born a son of James M. Halliwill and May Ann Lindsley. As the namesake of his grandfather, George Halliwill, Jr. he was a worthy son. In fact he took delight in keeping untarnished the brilliant escutcheon of the Halliwill name, which has long been highly honored. He remained on the family farm, helping his father, until the completion of his twenty-third year, when he decided to begin life on his own account. Matrimony is usually the prime cause of this step in the case of young men and Mr. Halliwill was no exception to the rule.

Although two Medina county marriage license's were procured for George B. Halliwill and Belle E. Henry by his father, the couple failed to marry. The first license was dated 23 Nov 1883, the second, 19 Jan 1884. Belle was the daughter of Hiram and Mary E. Henry of Montville Township, Medina County, Ohio. On 22 Jan 1887, she married Milton E. Wurts in Medina county. Soon after his failed attempts to gain the hand of his beloved Belle Henry, George joined his older brother, Frank in Ashtabula County, Ohio. Here he met and married, Mary Elizabeth Cramer, a native of Richland County.

George and Mary Elizabeth resided in the Ashtabula area for no less than a decade, as several of their children were born in Rockcreek. Floyd C. was born 21 Jun 1889 in Ashtabula Co. Note that the 28 Jul1891 birth of their second child, Pearl Mae, was not listed in the county records. Harry was born 22 Dec 1892; Glen Halliwill was born 19 Jul 1895; and Golda Halliwill was born 23 Jan 1898.

From numerous records, we know that the Albert Bartley Cramer family returned to Shelby, where he died on 28 Mar 1914. George Halliwill returned to his birth place between 1898 and 1900. On 24 Jan 1901 a Seville residence is depicted for the family in the 'Next of Kin' report of his father's Estate.

Soon after their move, Elizabeth bore a child in Seville. Statewide registration of births and deaths did not become a reality in Ohio until 1908, when a law passed in May established a bureau of vital statistics. Although no official record of this child has been located, one can approximate the year of birth and death via census reports. This infant was born, and died between 1900 and 1908 as depicted by Elizabeth's declaration of children; viz. 1900 US Census, Seville Village, Mary Elizabeth is listed as the mother of five, five of whom are living. 1910 in same, she is listed as the mother of seven, five are living.

Sadly, Floyd C., the couple's first born child, died in November of 1906 and was laid to rest in Seville's Mound Hill Cemetery. Their youngest, Dorothy L. Halliwell, was born on 26 Jul 1907 in Seville. George and Mary Elizabeth were enumerated as residents of Seville on the federal census until their demise.
