The GEORGE family and related lines lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the 1800s and moved to Newark, New Jersey about 1897. I’ve followed their trail to Pensacola, Florida (1907), Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.

Wendell GEORGE married Blanche HORTON, 16 July 1888, in Camden, New Jersey. Wendell and Blanche were born in Philadelphia, as were several of their oldest children: Harry Dauth GEORGE, b. 25 Nov 1888 d. 16 Jan 1889; Dora May GEORGE, b. 31 Mar 1890 d. 24 June 1890; and Elmer Ellsworth GEORGE, b. 13 Nov 1892. Son Charles GEORGE was born in Pennsylvania, January 1896, but it’s uncertain where. He could have been born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where his grandparents were living.

Wendell’s father, Israel Lewis GEORGE was born in Pennsylvania, possibly Philadelphia, and his mother, Elizabeth HORTON, was born in Rhode Island.

Blanche’s father, Daniel HORTON, was born in Bridgeton, Cumberland County, New Jersey, and her mother Lucy Ann CRISSY, was born in Rhode Island and died in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, in 1926.

As of this moment, I still searching for information of their ancestors and descendants, and am especially looking for the exact location of the birth of their son Charles GEORGE, born January 1896, in Pennsylvania. Also especially looking for ancestors of Israel GEORGE, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Nellie Gertrude GEORGE, daughter of Wendell and Blanche, was born 5 Nov 1901, in New Jersey, died 24 August 1986, married Harry Clayton Mabry 16 April 1919, in Orange County, Texas, and later lived in Biloxi, Mississippi, where they are buried.

Another daughter, Blanche George, was born in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, on 2 September 1907. At least two other children were born and died to this couple before 1900.

No death date or location has been found for Wendell GEORGE.

Wendell’s wife, Blanche C. HORTON George, moved to Texas, possibly living in Corpus Christi, Port Arthur, Houston, and Kerrville. At the time of her mother’s death in 1926, she was listed as Mrs. Blanche WALLACE in the obituary. Blanche C. HORTON died as Blanche WALLACE, May 1945, and is buried in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Wesley Hill GEORGE, eldest child of Elizabeth HORTON and Israel GEORGE, and brother of Wendell GEORGE, was married three times. Born about April 1850, he first married Sarah Maxwell “Sallie” ASHWORTH (17 May 1870 in Philadelphia). They had one child, Clara GEORGE, born 12 July 1871, died 19 May 1872, in Philadelphia, age 10 months. Sarah aka “Sallie” died 3 March 1872 in Philadelphia.

Wesley GEORGE married Pauline BUDNITZ, 5 January 1873, in Philadelphia, born 7 August 1855 in Reading, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Her parents were from Germany. They had a son William C. GEORGE, who was born about November or December 1873 and died 30 Jun 1880 in Philadelphia at the age of 6 years, 7 months. Their second son, Wesley Hill GEORGE Jr. was born 03 Feb 1875 in Philadelphia. Wesley Jr. died in early December 1941 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and was buried 03 Dec 1941, Odd Fellows Cemetery, Grave 6, Block 5, South 1 int., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is a defunct cemetery. His remains may be in the Memorial Park section of Lawnview Cemetery, in Rockledge, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, or Mount Peace Cemetery, Philadelphia.

Wesley’s third marriage was to Anna Theresa Theberge, about 1906. Wesley died, 3 April 1928, in Trenton, New Jersey. Anna died 1 July 1947 in Trenton. They are buried in the Theberge grave with her father, Lewis Theberge, in Riverview Cemetery, Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey.

Known lines associated with this family are MYERS, WHITEMAN, WARREN, CRISSY, LEWIS, HUFFER, COATES, MABRY, MAYER, WEST, MORSE, SANCHEZ, LEBLANC.

Details of the families and marriages of John Tyler Cadenhead and wives Mabel Clair Milam and Ruby Laura Koehler.

Spouses of John Tyler Cadenhead – clarification

There is confusion about this family so I’m going to try to clear up some misconceptions.  The confusion stems from John Tyler Cadenhead marrying a mother and her daughter, and having children with each of them.

John Tyler Cadenhead and Mabel Clair Milam were married 25 January 1903 in Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama.  Mabel was divorced from Ernest George Walter Koehler of Dresden, Germany.  Some records erroneously listed the Koehler surname as Kaler and other misspellings.

Mabel was the daughter of Laura Wimpee and Robert Milam of Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama.

Mabel married Ernest George Walter Koehler on 11 April 1899 in Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama.  On the 1900 Census, Mabel and Ernest were living in Oshkosk, Winnebago County, Wisconsin.  Daughter Minnie Laura “Ruby”  was born after the census was taken.

Their daughter, Minnie Laura A. Koehler [Minnie Laura R. Koehler] was born 31 July 1900 in Oshkosh, Winnebago County, Wisconsin.  She would later be known as Ruby Laura Koehler and Ruby Laura Cadenhead.

Mabel and John Tyler Cadenhead gave birth to daughter Lois Cadenhead 25 January 1909 in Birmingham and son John Cadenhead 24 February 1914 in Tarrant, Alabama.

Ruby Koehler appears on the 1910 census as daughter of Mabel Cadenhead, step-daughter of John Tyler Cadenhead.  Young Lois Cadenhead also appears with her parents, John and Mabel, and older half-sister, Ruby. John and Mabel are listed as married seven years (his first marriage, her second).

On his WWI draft Registration, John Tyler Cadenhead claims his wife is “Rubie Laura Cadenhead” in 1918.

On the 1920 Census, John and Mabel appear as husband and wife,  Ruby Cadenhead is listed as “daughter”, the other children listed are Lois, 11, John, 6, Bob, 2 years 10 months.  John Tyler Cadenhead and Mabel Milam must have divorced at some point between 1910 and 1918.  John Sr.’s WWI draft record and the 1920 census give conflicting evidence regarding his wife.

Mabel later married James Curry on 3 June 1922 in Enlsey, Jefferson County, Alabama, according to Alabama marriage records.

On the 1930 Census, the family is listed as Charles Curry, with wife Mabel C., and step-son John Cadenhead.  Listed in same household but as a separate family are John T. Cadenhead, 55, wife Rubie, 29, (first married at age 15 which would have been circa 1915-1916), sons Robert, 13, Warren, 10, Leland, 6, and daughter Leona, 3 years, 11 months.

John Tyler Cadenhead died 29 July 1940 in Birmingham.  Ruby is listed as his wife on his death certificate and in his obituary.

Also listed in his obituary are four sons, John Jr., Robert, Warren, and Leland Cadenhead, and daughters Mrs. A.J. (Lois) Thomason and Leona Cadenhead.  Deceased family members aren’t listed.

Ruby Laura Koehler Cadenhead died 21 October 1984 in Birmingham.  Listed in her obituary are one daughter, Leona Cadenhead White; two sons, Leland and Rev. Robert Cadenhead; two brothers, John Cadenhead and Ernest William Koehler; and two sisters, Lois Cadenhead Thomason and Thea Koehler Terry.  Deceased family members aren’t listed.

Mabel Clair Milam died in 1955 as Mabel Clair Curry in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida.  Her daughter, Lois Cadenhead Thomason, also lived in Tampa at that time.

Note:  These conclusions are based on extensive research involving marriage records, birth records, census records, death certificates, obituaries of the above-named people, as well as the records of their extended family members. – akr

I’m researching the GEORGE family who lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during the 1800s and moved to Newark, New Jersey. about 1897.   I’ve followed their trail to Pensacola, Florida (1907), Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.  The HORTON Family has roots in Massachusetts.

Wendell GEORGE married Blanche HORTON, 16 July 1888, in Camden, New Jersey. Wendell and Blanche were born in Philadelphia, as were several of their oldest children: Harry Dauth GEORGE, b. 25 Nov 1888 d. 16 Jan 1889; Dora May GEORGE, b. 31 Mar 1890 d. 24 June 1890; and Elmer Ellsworth GEORGE, b. 13 Nov 1892. Son Charles GEORGE was born in Pennsylvania, January 1896, but it’s uncertain where. He could have been born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where his grandparents were living.

Wendell’s father, Israel Lewis GEORGE was born in Pennsylvania, possibly Philadelphia, and his mother, Elizabeth HORTON, was born in Rhode Island.

Blanche’s father, Daniel HORTON, was born in Bridgeton, Cumberland County, New Jersey, and her mother Lucy Ann CRISSY, was born in Rhode Island and died in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, in 1926.

As of this moment, I still searching for information of their ancestors and descendants, and am especially looking for the exact location of the birth of their son Charles George, born January 1896, in Pennsylvania. Also especially looking for ancestors of Israel George, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Nellie Gertrude GEORGE, daughter of Wendell and Blanche, was born 5 Nov 1901, in New Jersey, died 24 August 1986, married Harry Clayton Mabry, 16 April 1919, in Orange County, Texas, and later lived in Biloxi, Mississippi, where they are buried.

Another daughter, Blanche George, was born in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, on 2 September 1907. At least two other children were born and died to this couple before 1900.

No death date or location has been found for Wendell GEORGE.

Wendell’s wife, Blanche C. HORTON George, moved to Texas, possibly living in Corpus Christi, Port Arthur, Houston, and Kerrville. At the time of her mother’s death in 1926 she was listed as Mrs. Blanche WALLACE in the obituary. Blanche C. HORTON died as Blanche WALLACE, May 1945, and is buried in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Wesley Hill GEORGE, eldest child of Elizabeth HORTON and Israel GEORGE, and brother of Wendell GEORGE, was married three times. Born about April 1850, he first married Sarah Maxwell ASHWORTH (“Sallie”)(17 May 1870 in Philadelphia). They had one child, Clara, born 12 July 1871, died 19 May 1872, in Philadelphia, age 10 months. Sarah aka “Sallie” died 3 March 1872 in Philadelphia.

Wesley married Wilhelmina Pauline Anna BUDNITZ, known as “Paulina”, on 5 January 1873, in Philadelphia.  She was born 7 August 1855 in Reading, Berks County, Pennsylvania and died 17 June 1906 in Philadelphia. Her remains were interred in North Cedar Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia.  Her parents were from Germany. Wesley and Pauline had a son William C. GEORGE, who was born about November or December 1873 and died 30 Jun 1880 in Philadelphia at the age of 6 years, 7 months. Their second son, Wesley Hill GEORGE Jr. was born 03 Feb 1875 in Philadelphia. Wesley Jr.  died in early December 1941, and was buried 03 Dec 1941, Odd Fellows Cemetery, Grave 6, Block 5, South 1 int., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is a defunct cemetery. His remains may be in the Memorial Park section of Lawnview Cemetery, in Rockledge, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, or Mount Peace Cemetery, Philadelphia.

Wesley’s third marriage was to a French-Canadian woman named Anna Theresa Theberge, about 1906-1907. They were still married at the time of Wesley’s death 3 April 1928, in New Jersey. Anna died 1 July 1947 in Trenton, New Jersey.  They are buried in the Theberge grave in Riverview Cemetery, Trenton, New Jersey.
