George C. Fittell was the son of Frederick and Sarah (Roach) Fittell. Although he was only 14 1/2 years of age, he volunteered for service late in the War Between the States (aka The Civil War) and was assigned to Company H, 126th Infantry, Illinois Volunteers, and spent most of his year in the army in Arkansas.

On Jan. 3, 1869 George was married to Edna Bateman, daughter of Robert and Minerva (Gaunt) Bateman. To this union were born seven children, two of whom died in infancy or early childhood. In about 1875 or '76 they moved westward to Kansas, settling near Clifton. Many years later they moved to Geary, Blaine Co., OK to be near two of their daughters. It was there that Edna passed from this life and was taken back to Clifton for burial next to her parents. George continued to live at Geary until his death. He, too, was taken back to Clifton for burial beside his wife.

Left to mourn their passing were five children: Mary Perkins, Myda Stough, Robert, Minerva Kienzle and Jessie Young, as well as several grandchildren and other relatives.
