Based on information in the 1798 Grimm census, Georg Whilhelm was the son of Andreas' deceased wife. At the time of the census, only former wife Dorothea Braun was deceased. Eva Elisabeth was still alive in 1798, as she was living with her stepdaughter in family #73. Eva Elisabeth was his step-mother, who married his father Andreas sometime before 1775, in part to help him take care of his infant son and step-children.
Child #2 Johannes Braum [sic], age 12 years 6 months, stepchild
Child #2 Jakob Lochmann, age 8, stepchild
Child #2 Maria Elisabeth Braum [sic], age 6 years 6 months, stepchild
When his father Andreas and Eva Elisabeth Lochmann divorced, Georg Wilhelm stayed living with his biological father and his third wife, while Eva Elisabeth Lochmann Getz lived with step-daughter Maria Elisabeth Braun Krug. If I find new information that suggests his mother was not Dorothea Braun, I will update this record accordingly.
Wife Elisabeth Schutz [sic] Getz, age 73 [perhaps Schultz?], from Stephan
Child #1 Georg Wilhelm Getz, age 28, by deceased wife
Wife of Child #1 Elisabeth Margaretha Brungard Getz, age 23
Grandchild #1 Anna Margaretha Getz, age 3 months
The spelling of his surname changed in 1834 to include an umlauted letter O (Götz). This was probably the original spelling of the surname, whereas the Getz version was a phoenetic version introduced by the census taker.

Wife of Child #1 Christina Götz, age 23, second wife
Grandchild #1 Johann Georg Götz, age 10, by first wife

Child #2 Johann Wilhelm Götz, age 32, by first wife
Wife of Child #2 Anna Margaretha Götz, age 31

There is a nine-year gap between the births of his third and fourth children. His first wife most likely passed away between 1802 and 1810, and he remarried by 1810. His fourth child, Georg Adolph Götz, was then the son of his second wife Anna Elisabeth Schäfer.
