Nelda, It appears by the birth date of Edward born 1913 as compared to George's brother Edward born approx 1810 and their father born prior to 1858 approx, that this would be the next generation from George. George stayed in Michigan, working on the ore boats, logging, then in the steering wheel factory in Onaway, Mi. George married at 39 in Onaway moved to Alma for a year then to Detroit. He moved to Tower, Mi where he built a log cabin in 1945 and stayed there until his death. George had very little contact with his brothers, the family broke up when George was sixteen and he went with his father. The brothers were place in foster care. George did see one brother either Edward or William in the 1950's according to family folklore.
Thanks Anne
