A Guide to the Enoch Ben and Daniel Ball George Family Papers, 1858-2002
Enoch Ben George was born in South Carolina in 1790 and settled in the Blanco, Texas, area in 1859. His son Daniel Ball George, born in St. Clair County, Alabama, in 1823, settled as a farmer in Fisher, Comal County, Texas, around 1856, where he purchased 4610 acres of land from original grantee Michael W. Potter. He and his wife Mary George served the Confederacy in Texas. Mary George was born as Mary W. McSween in North Carolina in 1824. Her heritage has been traced back directly to Isle of Skye, Scotland, and the Clan MacLeod. In 2002, the United Daughters of the Confederacy presented a Grave Marker Dedication for Daniel Ball and Mary M. George at Pleasant Valley Cemetery, between Wimberley and Blanco, TX.
Consisting of original tax receipts, a transcript of a letter sent home from the Civil War front, photographs, research files and ephemera, the George, Enoch Ben and Daniel Ball, Family Papers, 1858-2002, document the genealogy research performed regarding Enoch Ben George’s family and his descendants.
The research files consist of family research filling cards, United States Census records and correspondence. The photographs include original framed portraits of Daniel Ball George and Mary M. George, a modern reprint of Enoch Ben George’s portrait and a couple pictures of descendants Margaret and Ben Cox at the Grave Marker Dedication ceremony.
