  • Notes 
    • After returning from his service in the Civil War, G. E. went to Mexico early in 1865, returning on August 7. The following year he made a crop on his father’s farm, receiving 30 cents per pound for his cotton in Galveston. He married in 1867 and became engaged in carpentry as well as farming. By 1900 he had moved into La Grange. In March, 1896, he took the position of traveling agent for Mr. O. E. Stolz’s marble yard in La Grange. [6]
