George Altemose was born on 15 October 1803, in Northhampton COunty, Pennsylvania. He was one of 10 children born to his father. His father was Johann Peter Altemose and Catharina Everitt.

George married Louisa ARNOLD in about 1826 in Northampton County, Pennsylvania. She died soon after their marriage and no children were born to them.

George remarried on 1 June 1829, in Hamilton, Monroe, Pennsylvania to Catherine Yetter. They were married at Hamilton Union Church by Rev. Joseph B. Gross. Their marriage was announced in the "Easton Sentinel" issue of Friday, 5 June 1829. The 5 June 1829 issue of the "Northampton Correspondent" shows the bride's name as Catharine "Fenner" of Middle Smithfield Township, Pike County. (It is not known if Catharine first married a Fenner or if this was an error in the newspaper.)

In 1830, aged 27, George is living in Tobyhanna, Northampton, Pennsylvania. He has a household size of four. Two adults and two children.

In 1850, aged 47, George is living in Tobyhanna, Monroe, Pennsylvania. He is a farmer and his real-estate is valued at $600. He is living with his wife and children.

In 1860, aged 57, George is living in Tunkhannock, Monroe, Pennsylvania with his wife and children. He is a farmer and his real-estate is valued at $600 and his personal estate is valued at $700.

In 1870, aged 67, he is living in Tunkhanna, Monroe, Pennsylvania. He is living with his wife and children and is a farmer. His estate is valued at $2,000, and his personal estate is valued at $500.

On 19 August 1873, in Tunkhannock, Monroe, Pennsylvania, George died at the age of 69. George died intestate. His widow, Catharine filed a renunciation in September of 1873 turning over administration of the estate to their son, Jacob E. Altemose. In December, 1873 Catharine filed a list of property that she was retaining under her rights as George's widow. Their son, Emery Altemose, who was still a minor over the age of 14, filed a petition requesting a guardian. The court appointed his brother, Perry. At his death, George owned a number of tracts of real estate. Some of the tracts were sold to Jonas Altemose, Jacob Stauffer, Reuben Bonser, and George Bonser to satisfy debts. Several other tracts were sold to sons, George L. and Perry, and son-in-law, Mathias George. These land sales occurred from 1875 to 1878. (Monroe County estate file #686 and orphans court file #849)
