  • Notes 
    • George ran away from home at age 17 years to join the Union Army during the Civil War. He served in Pennsylvania infantry and cavalry regiments. Moved to Soda Springs, Idaho. Active in civic affairs, he served as a deputy U. S. Marshal, county commissioner, county treasurer and representative in the Idaho state legislature. Four of his five daughters died of diphtheria in the space of two weeks and the fifth daughter died of pneumonia when 8 months old. The infants were buried in what is now Fairview Cemetery, Soda Springs, Idaho, ground given later to the city of Soda Springs by George and Leah Gorton.
