George was a native of Warren County, PA. He came of one of the prominent New England families, his ancestors having settled in New York in the eighteenth century. They were prominent in the revolutionary war and made their mark both in New York and Pennsylvania.

While still in the prime of life, he was lured to the golden west by the stories reaching the east of the wonderful gold discoveries. In 1852 he started across the plains with a party of emigrants and after several months of hardships and thrilling encounters with the Indians, he landed in California the same year. Soon after arriving, he made his residence in Sutter County. On August 28, 1856 he married Mary Barry (Berry). George and Mary were the parents of six children:

Hiram Aaron Walton- 1857-1929
Josephine Walton- 1862- 1923
George E. Walton Jr- 1863- ?
Francis Walton- 1865-1916
Sadie Walton- 1868-1935
Richard Walton- 1870-1938

He was a well known agriculturist and horticulturist. While a man of few words, he was exceedingly successful in business and owned large tracts of some of the best land in the county. George with his brothers, Benjamin Franklin, Robert H. and Hiram Aaron all settled in California.

He died in Yuba City, Sutter, CA at the age of 88.
