Glen, Thanks for the tip. I'd be interested if you find anything else.
I believe there were two sons of Jacob "Jim" George living in Iowa, Samuel
and Henry. Also a daughter Mary Ann George McLellan and a granddaughter who
married a Klein. The Miller Innkeeper family named our Jacob "Jim" because
of the confusion of names, so I'm just guessing the children may have been
about the same age.
