George Washington Geiger, Jr.
(1885- ? )


George Washington Geiger Jr. was born on June 28, 1885 in Johnstown, Cambria County, PA, the son of George and Emma J. (Minerd) Geiger.

Little is known of his life, other than he is believed to have been raised in the Johnstown area. He was of medium height and build, with blue eyes and dark hair.

He married Levina (?) (1886- ? ) in about 1906, when he was age 21, and she 20.

They had at least two children -- Anna Geiger and (?) Geiger.

In about 1909, George and Levina moved with his parents and siblings to Charleston, Kanawha County, WV. 

The Geigers went to live in North Carolina circa 1908, where their eldest daughter was born, but by 1910 were back in Charleston for the birth of their second child.

When the federal census was taken in 1910, George and Levina lived along Railroad Avenue, and his parents George and Emma resided in their home. That year, George Sr. was employed as a cement contractor, while George Jr. apparently worked for him as a cement laborer.

George was required to register for the U.S. military draft in September 1918 after the nation was plunged into World War I. At the time, he disclosed that he was employed as a cement worker for H.H. Williams, which had offices in the Morrison building in Charleston. He named his next of kin as Grace Geiger of 105 Lavee Street.

In the summer of 1955, at the time of death of his brother William Edward Geiger, George was residing in Eljobeane, FL.

Nothing further is known, but will be added here when learned.
