George was the son of Moses Prindle and Sally Ann Schaffer, both of whom are buried in Buckhorn Waterford Cemetery in Jackson County, IA.

He was born in South Fork, Jackson, IA, and was located there as a 2 year-old child in the 1885 census. His WWI Registration record indicated a birth year of 1881. The 1885 census would indicate a birth year of 1883; however, burial records indicated 1878. He was a 17 year-old farm laborer in 1900, which would indicate 1883. So who knows?

George and Lena married on Nov. 25, 1911 in Maquoketa, Jackson, IA. They were extremely poor and lived in poverty conditions. The county took three of their children and put them in an orphanage for the children's sake.
