William George was born in 1849. He was the son of Christian Pahl and Frederika Catherina Schultz. He married Harriet Harford in 1876.[1] He passed away in 1943[2] and was buried in Wakapuaka Cemetery, Nelson, New Zealand.[3][4]

He was the uncle of another George William Pahl, and because they shared the same name it appears that they went by the names "Red Bill" and "Black Bill" to differentiate between them. They were only about 8 years apart in age. See George William Pahl - "Black Bill". The first common ancestor found for George William Pahl - "Black Bill" and George William Pahl - "Red Bill" is Wilhelm (William) Pahl, Red Bill's father.
