    Notes 
    • [Glaser - John Carl.FTW]
      One old family note shows George's birth year as 1806 instead of 1805.
    • [Glaser - John Carl.FTW] A map of Scotland show the town of Johnstone (spelled with an 'e' at the end) as opposed to Johnston as shown in the old writings made in our family's notes.
    • [Glaser - John Carl.FTW] He was a Mason and a church Elder. An old family note written by an unknown granddaughter [possibly Marion Tier] refers to "grandfather "George Fordyce [born 6/24/1805] in saying that: "Geo. Fordyce (my great-grandfather) was also an Elder in the church, and grandfather says it was reported that he was a very strict man (grandfather was about 2 years old when he died, so did not know anything of his own knowledge" He was born on 2/21/1751. This computer program will not allow this date to be entered and keeps incorrectly printing that he was born in "1750/51."
    • [Glaser - John Carl.FTW] It is known that George had 12 children, but only 10 names are known.
