NoteGeorge first appears with the family at Kenton, Suffolk, in the 1851 census. The date of the census isn't known, but his age is given as 5 months. His birthdate is taken from the 1901 census at Hamilton. He is there with his wife Harriet, age 45, daughter Zella, age 25, and son Ebon, age 15. The writing is difficult, but it appears to state that he came to Canada in 1856.

The 1901 census at Hamilton shows George and Harriet with a daughter Zella, said to be born March 18, 1876, and a son Ebon born 29 April 1886.

The 1911 census shows George Church with daughter Myrtle and her husband Henry Anderson. Myrtle's birth information is given as May 1883.

Just what the situation was with George and Harriet as of 1911 isn't clear, but they do not appear to be living together. As mention, in 1911 George is living with daughter Myrtle Anderson in Saltfleet Township (Burlington Beach). Harriet is living with daughter Zella and her husband George Bradford in Hamilton. Also present is Harriet's son Ebon Church.

In 1921, George and Ebon are in the same residence in Hamilton.

The year of George's death is taken from a transcription of Hamilton Cemetery, Section M & O, by the Hamilton Branch, OGS.
