John....Here are census records that APPEAR to be George W. Ferrell's birth family. These records are from Heritage Quest.

1860 Oakdale Post Office, Springfield Township, Delaware County, PA Census - Page 655 - Enumerated 14 June:

All Ferrall (Ferrell) household members born in PA.

James Ferrall, 40, m, milkman, value of personal estate/300
Sarah A. Ferrall, 32, f
Charles Ferrall, 12, m
Margaret Ferrall, 11, f
James Ferrall, 8, m
Sarah E. Ferrall, 22, f
Elwood F. Ferrall, 3, m
Jonas Ferrall, 1, m
Geo. H. Jones, 25, m, carpenter, born in NJ

)My Note: I am assuming that Sarah E. Ferrall is the mother of Elwood and Jonas, but of course no way of knowing for sure.)
------------------------
1870 Marple Post Office, Springfield Township, Delaware County, PA Census - Page 424 B - Enumerated 18 July:

All household members born in PA.

James Ferrell, 56, m, value of personal estate/500
Margaret Ferrell, 21, f
James Ferrell, 19, m
Ellwood Ferrell, 13, m
James Ferrell, 11, m (My Note: Jonas on the 1860 census?)
(?) Hary Ferrell, 9, m
George Ferrell, 5, m (My Note: Your George W.?)
