was born August 3, 1844 in Randolph Co., GA. After
living a short time in the States of Florida and Mississippi, he
moved with his father's family to Texas in 1857 and settled near
Moscow, in Polk County. On May 5th, 1862, he enlisted in
the Confederate Army and became a member of Hood's famous
brigade and served during the entire period of the war, except
when being treated for a wound in the leg that almost proved
fatal. He was with General Lee at Appomattox and witnessed
the surrender of his leader. He died December 27,
1915. He is buried in the Glenwood Cemetery, Crockett,
Houston Co., TX. His headstone reads "Hood's Brigade CSA,
Mason". He is buried next to his second wife, Sallie
Morris Worthington. She was born August 9, 1852 and died
September 13, 1941.

where he served until his death.
He was married in 1867 to

After the death of his first wife, he married

Worthington, wife of William Branch Worthington, who was a
brother of George's first wife.
George Lundy and Mrs. Sallie Daniels married
