m Agnes E. Long 31 Jan 1899 who was a rural school teacher.
Daughter of Thomas A. Long and Elizabeth Ann Foley Long

From horse-drawn carriages, Ed George was St. Paul's transportation pioneer. Among the many George families engaged in farming around St. Paul at the beginning of the 20th century, Edward Adam George was the first to break away from the land, move into town and go into business. He was the business of transportation.
As owner of the E.A. George Livery and Feed Barn popularly known as the Red Barn Livery Barn, Ed George proveded the townspeople with horses, carriages and stabling services and also operated The City Bus Line. The bus was a covered coach seating six persons and drawn by a team of horses. It was used primarily to link the town with his railroad depot, where the City Bus met all trains that stopped in St. Paul. In the early years there were as many as six trains arriving and departing daily. With the arrival of the horseless carriage in the century's second decade, George made the transition from liveryman to automobile salesman and in 1914 became the regional sales agent for Maxwell motor cars. The Red Livery Barn gradually became a storage garage and showroom for the George Motor Company. After 1924, when the newly formed Chrysler Corp. absorbed Maxwell cars, Ed built a separate automobile service garage and gasoline station west of his livery stable. He operated his new enterprise under the banner of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Co. of New Jersery, later renamed Exxon Corp.
