On the 1820 Census, George was living next to a William "Nusom" and a William Reeves. In 1840, he was living next to his father-in-law, Balaam Newsom. There is also a William Reeves listed a number of households before him, likely the same one. The will of Balaam Newsom from July 1840 in Madison County gives a "share to following children of my daughter Rhoda Reeves one share viz Betsy, William, Balam, Lucinda, & John Reeves these five to have the share of their deceased mother." (WB 3, p341)

George was still living in 1845 when he signed a deed in Madison County.
