    • George makes his first appearance in contemporary records, in North Carolina on 10 Jul 1764, when he appears in Rowan County Court records. In 1769 he was made a constable for the region of Peters Creek, Snow Creek and the head of the Dan River. On 14 Jul 1778 he entered a claim for 640 acres on both sides of the Dan River in Surry Co., North Carolina. This land contained the "plantations of John and George Deatherage."The land was surveyed on 31 Mar 1779 and was granted 3 Apr 1780. On 4 Dec 1778 George Deatherage entered claim for 400 acres on the Great Creek of the Dan River in Surry County. The land was surveyed on 6 Apr 1779 and was granted 3 Apr 1780. George and his brother John are both mentioned extensively in the court records of Stokes Co., North Carolina.

      During the Revolutionary War George aided the patriot cause by providing supplies to the militia. He also appeared on a list of those who served in Captain Vernon's Company of Light Horse for ten days in October 1781 from North Carolina.

      George in his will written on 10 Dec 1806 named his wife Milly and his children Nancy, "who intermarried with William Edgmon," Bird, Abner, Anne, "who intermarried with George Cloud," Polly, Ursley, "who intermarried with Ashly Johnson," John, Phillip, James, William, Coleman, George, and "Achkillas." He named George Cloud as his executor. The witnesses of the will were Joseph Cloud, William Lankford, Phillip Deatherage, and James Lyon, Jr. The will was proved in the March 1807 term of the Stokes County Court by William Lankford. A part of the will reads: "I, George Deatherage of the County of Stokes and the State of North Carolina leave to my wife Milly and my children..." It went on to name the heirs and division, then says..."My Negro girl Edy to my wife Milly until my youngest son becomes age 14 years, then she is to belong to him with all her increases."


      After George's death Milly lived in Stokes County for several years and then moved to Logan Co., Kentucky, between 1810 and 1820. In 1826 she moved to Morgan Co., Illinois, where she lived until she died.
    • From the DEATHERAGE FAMILY TREE in ANCESTRY:

      John purchased 330 acres of land in Spotsylvania Co. Virginia on June 2, 1759. He sold the land on July 4, 1768 and moved to North Carolina. There he purchased 640 acres with his brother George, in what is now Stokes County. John recieved 226 acres, and George 414. George mortgaged his parcel to John, but never paid off the mortgage. When John found the mortgage papers, he was near death and unable to settle with George. The mortgage passed to his heirs, and a lawsuit resulted between them and George's heirs.
