I'm looking for any information I can find on my great-grandfather George Canterbury -- I have no birth date or location for him; however, some of the older relatives in my family seem to remember that he lived at least part of his life in Logan County but died in Boone County in the 1940's. He lived to be "very old." He had a son named William, d. 1930 in Logan County, a son named James and a son named Bernie who was a deaf mute. William was my mother's father but he died when she was 3 years old, and the families kind of separated at that point.
