George fought on the Loyalist side in the Revolutionary War. One source says the New Jersey Volunteers and another the Queen's Rangers. His widow remarried to Adam Micheal Teeter, a patriot who fought in Morgan's Rifle Regiment. The online dictionary lists George's death as 1783 (probably of typhus) but other sources show a Christmas 1778 death at the army camp. 1783 is probably too late, as his widow had started a new family by 1781.
