    Notes 
    • In 1747 he was not yet married, as his brother James was instructed by their father's will to help him build a barn and house on George's share of the land. He sold the land and bought land on Evan's Run from his mother-in-law Mary Ross Littler. Here he operated a mill and tavern, or Inn, and this became Bruce's Mills, and later Brucetown. Francis Asbury stayed there while he was preaching, and referred to George as "a Lily among the thorns". [3, 4]
