Thanks!! I think I have a better sense now of why my grand aunt Fay (Amazeen) Bailey felt Walter was a bitter old man!
I'll add the info you sent to my collateral family tree at ancestry.com. I'm delighted that I can add a little bit more detail there.
No doubt Walter is buried in Kittery or nearby.
I've been through the family papers recently and do not recall much mention of Walter, much less Georgia. Given the context, my guess is that he was the proverbial "black sheep." But I'd love to learn more about him. Given what his sister Fay said, though, he probably left few traces.
The Amazeens were passionate, wild and reckless sea-faring folk from the 17th century here onwards. Not always model citizens. The type of folk who, in the 1600s, were likely to be accused of witchcraft. But that's a whole 'nother story.
All I can say is that "Georgie" must have been an adventurous rebel to
have fallen in love with an Amazeen...
