 Includes NotesNotes for George Washington King:
Since George King is presently shrouded in mystery, it is impossible to determine George Washington King's place of birth. It may well have been Georgia, where his brother Street Ashford King was born in 1816. Washington is only listed on the 1850 census of Bladen County and his age is given as 35. This is most likely a rough estimate as is unusual since most of the people were illiterate and did not know their exact age. The age of 35 puts his birth at around 1815. However, I would estimate that it should most likely be the later part of 1814. Washington King is the only name that can be found in Bladen records. We know from family members that his first name is George. The land that he lived on was in the Reedy Meadow area and it was obtained from his father-in-law James Munce and his brother-in-law John Munce. Washington is remembered as a very short skinny man. Some say that his brother Street King is remembered as a short Irish talking man. Washington died sometime after his last child Amelia Ann King was born in 1854. His family lived afterwards with James Munce (Muntz).(per Jason Bordeaux)

It should be noted that George Washington King cannot presently be proven as the son of George King. However, all evidence points to the fact that he is. After years of research on this family, I am convinced that he was the son of George.(per Jason Bordeaux)
