George L. Bagwell is a son of Wiley and Mary York Bagwell. He married Mary Bethaney Nancy Laster on Feb. 12, 1853 in Jefferson Co., AL. Some folks have put George's middle name as "Lafayette" but In my 40 plus years of research, I have never seen proof of this. The "L" may also stand for "Lucas" as a grandson was named this, George Lucas "Luke" Bagwell, a son of Jesse Ray and Henrietta Johnson Bagwell. If you have proof, please let me know.
