  • Notes 
    • George went to work in the coal mines when he was only twelve (12) years old.
      In 1903 he dad both legs broken due to a slate fall in the coal mines. After
      this accident he could no longer work underground since he was unable to
      stoop. He learned Blacksmithing and worked at this art until his death.
