Our family thinks that the George that we know changed his last name. He didn't give hardly any information on his childhood. The birthdate seems to match what he has told us. We believe he changed his name because we cannot find ANYTHING on the name that he gave us. But he did tell us that his parents were George (lastname?) and Emily Steepe. I researched Emily Steepe, because Steepe isn't that common of a name, and it let me to this conclusion. The story he told us was that he left home when he was about 20years old, and didn't go back home until one of his parent's funerals in 1920, but wasn't welcomed by the family. He also told that his family owned a horse ranch, whether this is true we don't know. We believe that after he left home he changed his name, due to the fact that theres family stories that he was in trouble with the law. We have some records on him, but we believe that they are not of his family name.
