Charles Thomas "Tom" George, second child of Mary Jane and Reuben Andrew GEORGE, was born on February 4, 1859, in Clay County Kansas during his parents' brief stay in the Kansas Territory.

Tom's brothers and sisters - the George aunts & uncles were:

* Louise "Alice" GEORGE FITCH (1855-1941)
* Charles Thomas GEORGE (1858-1938)
* William Handley GEORGE (1861-1945) lived in Custer Co MT
* Enoch Ezra GEORGE (1863-1868) lived in Andrew Co MO

Martha "Dale" Leonard, the daughter of Tom Leonard, married Charles "Tom" George on 19 April, 1894 in Andrew County, MO.

Martha Dale and Tom GEORGE had 5 children:
Reuben L. (1896-?), Henry Hobson (1899-1955), Joseph (1901-1979), Robert Thomas (1902-1999), Mary Ann FULTON (1906-1998)

Sometime before 1905, Tom's family left Nodaway County Missouri and moved to Montana. But based upon his daughter, Mary Ann being born in June 1906 in Hopkins, Nodaway County, MO, perhaps they moved later.

C. Tom and M. Dale were buried at Knowlton Cemetery, Custer Co, Montana.
His tombstone gives his dates of b. Feb. 14, 1859 d. Sep. 18, 1931. Hers has her name, but no dates.

On October 6, 1975, Tom's niece Beryl wrote: "All I can remember my Dad (Will George) saying was his father (Reuben A. George) did not talk about his people and Uncle Charles Thomas was much the same. A very quiet man with a deep sense of humor. When he did talk it was worth listening to."

"This is Charles Thomas George with the children of Henry and Mary Ann George Fulton. On bottom step: Louise & Dorothy Fulton. In front of Tom is George Fulton. To left of Tom are Margaret & a twin George. To the right of Tom and top to bottom are Lillian, Mary, Tom, and a twin. The twins names are Elnor and Elnora. There may be a hidden child and if so, he would be Jimmy."
