The photographer was able to get me in touch with the current land owner, and she was able to provide quite a few more photos, so if want more information, please let me know. Our ancestor was "given" the name of George Washington by Cl. Fremont on his last expedition. I had sort of given up trying to locate him, just because it's impossible to research George Washington without tearing out all my hair!

It is spelled differently than we had been told ... "Nehtiemaquah". Let me know if you have any questions
Thanks for your response. I am researching Rebecca Crail Atkinson who married George Atkinson. She was born in Maryland? and resided most of her life in Decatur County, Indiana, before moving with her son William Atkinson to Iowa where she died. There was another Crail (spelled differently) in Decatur County, Indiana, but she is not listed as their child. I would like to know the name of her father, mother, etc; Thanks.
