George was a lieutenant in Co. B, Hampton's Legion, South Carolina troops, CSA. He was killed during the retreat from Yorktown to Williamsburg,Va.

He signed his will the 27 May 1861 and it was probated the 2 June 1862 [Equity Bos 61 #660]. At his death he owned 598 acres of land adjacent to Benjamin Boggs & others. He also owned the mill place of 11 acres and the home place, and also the mountain place of 252 acres.

He was the father of William Kennedy, Lattice Malinda, Julius Elkanah, John P., Thomas Hamilton, and Josephine Boggs.

NOTE - his marker here is a memorial marker only; it is unlikely a reinterrment took place years after his death in 1862; this property was not used as a cemetery until after it was purchased by the town of Liberty to create a cemetery there around 1886.

In 2015, a burial entry was made on Find A Grave for Pvt. George W.B. Boggs, showing him to actually be buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery in Williamsburg, Va.
