#2038 Alfred Henry George was my GG grand-uncle. His mother, Jessie George / Clark, was my Gx3 Grandmother. Alfred was the result of Jessie being raped in a cab on her way beck from work to Cascades. Jessie was given extra time on her sentence for being raped and giving birth. Alfred's siblings are #2039 & #5301 Annie George/Thomas later Clark, who married John Neal; #2040 Jessie George/Thomas later Clark, who married William Baker; # 2041 Billie George/Thomas. These kids are also listed on this site. Alfred married Mary Matilda Robins on 25 August 1881 in Ringarooma. They had Janet Jessie Matilda George on 17 November 1883. By the time Janet was five, both her parents were deceased - Mary on 4 January 1884 and Alfred on 23 December 1888. Although there is no evidence as yet, it is most probable that Janet was absorbed into the broader family and raised by her grandmother. Ultimately, Jessie made her way to Ringarooma. All her children & families were there as well. This beautiful flower of Scotland with her roots in Jamaica was laid to rest in 1915 in Scottsdale, Tasmania.
