  1. Any idea who Mrs. McGeorge is? Could she be of the McGeorge’s from the globe area?

  2. This is probably Mrs. Agnes L. McGeorge, widow of William McGeorge who lived nearby and appears frequently in the Journal. You can locate the McGeorge home on the Glimer Map just downriver from Woodbury at what is now called “Horse Landing.” William McGeorge is likely from the McGeorge family who lived in the vicinity of Globe and whose home also appears on the Gilmer map. McGeorge family historians are invited to chime in.
