    Notes 
    • Notes from excerpt by D. E. McNiel on pages 346 and 347 of "The Heritage of Wilkes County, Vol. II" (Family 513: James and Mary Shepherd McNiel):

      "4. George (17 May 1802 - 21 Apr 1878). He married on 21 Nov 1822 in Wilkes County, Susan Vannoy (about 1803 - about 1883). They lived in the Charity Methodist Church section of the Millers Creek community. George joined Reddies River Baptist Church on the second Saturday in January 1848, and was elected church clerk three months later. He was one of the delegates to the Association in 1857. On the second Saturday in December 1858, he made application for letters of dismission for himself, his wife, Nancy Dancy (his sister), and Rebecca Taylor (his daughter). George returned his letter on the second Saturday in June 1860, and again became active in affairs of the church. George and Susan are buried in the McNiel-Faw-Riggs Cemetery north of Millers Creek. His tombstone has legible dates. Her tombstone gives her age as 80 years, 10 months, but does not have either a date of birth or date of death."
