|Biography*||Source Materials on George Boothe: |
1. History of Floyd Co., VA, by Amos D. Wood, 1981, pp. 19-21. Wood presents the story of George's birth as a son of an English earl in 1745. His escape to America was due to the lifting of a cornerstone to a plot of land, a punishable offense. Wood mentions that George "often made the trip on horseback from his home in New York, bringing back many droves of horses, which he turned out on a 'range.' He lived in the present county of Floyd many years and is buried on the land he took up." Children as "Obediah, Isaac, and Daniel." Text seems fairly reliable, and appears annotated; bracketed information often contradicts or expands on other information.
