George and Clara or Clarissa's children were; Mary, Robert, Carrie, Charles, Heston W., Thom P....George was killed in Jack county Texas by H A McComber on the Shanafelt Ranch. George had been renting a house and was picking up some items from that house. Mr MCcomber shot George then unhitched the mule from the wagon and shot it. He then turned to Georges son and told him if he had been old enough he would have shot him too. Then McComber went into the house and shot himself and the dog...Both are buried on the Shanafelt ranch...
