    By the time George registered for the WWI draft, he was living inDallas, working for a tea company in downtown.  George's draftregistration gives no middle name, either in his listing or hissignature on the card.  This record gives us his father's birth placein England, and provides the new information that George was born, notin Bexar, as earlier information seemed to indicate, but inneighboring Guadalupe County.

    George was married, but his death record reports him as Single, ratherthan widowed or divorced.

    In the 1920 census, his wife's name is Jessie A.  THe Find-a-Gravememorial below reports his wife (at the time of death) as Kathryn A.His son in the 1930 census is George M, but the only child mentionedin the memorial is Frederick William.  These may be two differentwives.  I have not found marriage records George or either wife'sname.

    George's situation in 1920 is unclear.  He is registered with the samehousehold number as Fred Gold and his family, but given a separateFamily number as head of the second family.  But his street address isalso different.  Fred's family address appears to be 120 Olive St,while George's address is 121 Omaha.  This may be one house with twoentrances on the corner of Olive and Omaha, so that each entrance ison a separate street.  But it is is odd that the numbers are insequence.

    In 1930 Jessie's middle initial E is given.

    The 1940 census provides some details that clarify that Katheryn is adifferent wife from Jessie whom we met in 1930.  Katheryn was born inIowa about 1911, while Jessie was born in Texas in about 1905.  Jessiemay have died, and note also the absence of George M, who might havedied also before the 1940 census.  They may have been divorced, inwhich case, George is probably with his mother.  I have not found thedivorce or death record for Jessie.

    With this census, informaiton for the Find-a-Grave memorial belowenables us to fil lout the ralationships.  The memorial reports thatGeorge Hicks was the father of George Magray, giving us Jesise's son'smiddle name, and F W (Frederick William), whom we see in the 1940census and the grave memorial, the son of Katheryn.  The note on theother children informs us that Katheryn was the widow of a man namedFulmer.  George Hicks adopted her children Katheryn Fulmer and RobertHoward Fulmer Jr.

    The memorial on Find a Grave reports a different place of birth forGeorge than he himself stated in his WWI draft registration.  Thismemorial says he was born in New Braunfels, near San Antonio, while hereported the place was nearby Marion, in Guadalupe County.  I have notfound his birth record.
