  • Event: Census Report 1860 Washington County, Georgia
  • Note:
    On the 1860 Washington County, Georgia, Census, two additional people were listed as living in household 42l with William and Lizzie Irwin and their children.  One was a George W. Massey, age 52, a merchant who was born in North Carolina.  He might have been a relative of William Irwin or just a boarder.  George Massey was also listed in the 1850 Washington County Census, household 47, family 47, as age 43 and a planter.  No one else was listed with him  in that household, an indication that he was not married, probably never had been, and he had no children.

    22  421  413  Massey     George W.     52  M   Merchant     1,000     1,700      NC
    23  421  413  Massey*   George L.      17  M                                    GA

    The second addtional person listed immediately after George W. Massey in the Irwin home in 1860 was a George L. Massey, age 17, who was born in Georgia. Were this truly a child of George W. Massey, he would have been listed in the 1850 Census with George W. Massey.  However, either the census taker or the transcriber of the original census records incorrectly used the surname of Massey for the 17-year-old George L.  This was actually George Lee Mason*, as substantiated by the following:

    1. George L. Mason was born in October of 1842 so would have been 17 years old in 1860, a minor.

    2. George L. Mason and his younger brother, James Daniel Mason, were the sons of Nancy Ann Daniel Mason, the deceased sister of Sarah A. Elizabeth "Lizzie" Daniel Irwin.

    3. Nancy Ann Daniel Mason died in June of 1846, probably in childbirth when James Daniel Mason was born.  Her husband, John F. Mason, died January 11, 1848, leaving George L. Mason and James Daniel Mason minor orphans.

    4. On Nov 4, 1849, Silas L. Daniel, a brother of Nancy Ann Daniel Mason and Lizzie Daniel Irwin, was appointed guardian of orphans George Lee Mason and James Daniel Mason.  That guardianship apparently lasted until Silas L. Daniel died in Oct, 1858. Silas Daniel's brother, Sampson Daniel, and Elizabeth H. Daniel, Silas' widow, filed for letters of administration for the estate of Silas L. Daniel on Oct 27, 1858.  On that same date in Washington County, Sampson Daniel filed for guardianship of James Daniel Mason (then age 12), but not of George Lee Mason (then age 16).

    5. On Nov 1, 1858 William Irwin was appointed guardian of orphan of John F. Mason, viz: George L. Mason. On Dec 5, 1858 Sampson Daniel was appointed guardian of orphan, James D. Mason. Recorded: MASON, John F. Estate. Johnson County, Georgia. L/G, Vol. A (1852-1890).

    6.  The obituary of Dr. George Lee Mason, which appeared in a Washington County, Georgia newspaper on Thursday, January 28, 1886, clearly stated that "...he went to live with the family of his aunt and uncle, Mrs. and Col. William A. Irwin, at the well known Irwin's Cross Roads, where most of his school years were spent...."

    George served in the military enlisting as a private in Co. E, 1st Regiment, "Washington Rifles" (Ramsey's), Georgia Volunteer Infantry, CSA, on Aug 12, 1861 in Washington  County, Georgia.  He was mustered out at Augusta, Ga. March 18, 1862.

    [quoted from the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System Web Site http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/regiments.htm]

    1st Regiment, Georgia Infantry (Ramsey's)

    1st (Ramsey's) Volunteers Infantry Regiment ws formed at Macon, Georgia, in April, 1861. The men were raised in the towns and cities of Newnan, Perry, Augusta, Sandersville, Atlanta, Bainbridge, Quitman, Dahlonega, and Columbus.

In December, with a force of 918 officers and men, it was sent to Winchester and later Lynchburg. The regiment was soon ordered to Macon and mustered out of service. However, many of the men joined the 12th Georgia Artillery Battalion and other Georgia commands. Colonel James N. Ramsey, Lieutenant Colonel Goerge H. Thompson, and Major James W. Anderson were its field officers.

  • Event: Military Service 1 Sep 1863 Washington County, Georgia
  • Note: George enlisted a second time as a private in Co. F, 62nd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry on September 1, 1863.  According to records on file in the Georgia Department of Archives and History, the unit was renamed as 62nd Regiment, Georgia Cavalry, then was renamed again as Co.

  • Education: 1868-1869 galveston, Texas
  • Note:
    In 1868 and 1869 George matriculated in the Medical Department of Soule University in Galveston, Texas, taking the following courses:

    Lectures— Practice of Medicine
    Lectures— Obstectrics
    Lectures— Physiology
    Lectures— Materia Medica
    Lectures— Surgery
    Lectures— Chemistry
    Lectures on Anatomy

    Family legend holds that while attending medical school, George lived with his uncle, Jasper Newton Daniel, younger brother of Nancy Ann (Daniel) Mason, George's late mother.  While he may indeed have visited his uncle and stayed in his home between school sessions, he probably actually lived on or near the university campus since his Uncle Jasper lived first in Austin County and later in LaSalle County, but was not known to have ever lived in Galveston County, Texas.

         Dr. George L. Mason died of paralysis on  Saturday last, at his residence, eight miles south of Tennille.

  • Event: Obituary 28 Jan 1866 Washington County, Georgia
  • Note:
       Died at his residence in this county on the 21st of November, 1885, of paralysis of the brain, after an illness of not quite two days, Dr. George L. Mason, aged 40 [sic; he was actually 42] years.

       He was the son of John and Nancy Mason, the latter being a sister of Judge Samson [sic] and Mr. Silas Daniel.  When not quite four years old he was left an orphan, both of his parents having died within two years of each other.  His uncle, the late Mr. Silas Daniel, became his guardain, who with his estimable wife (now Mrs. Moreau) bestowed upon him the affections and care of parents.  After the lapse of a few years, he went to live with the family of his aunt and uncle, Mrs. and Col. William A. Irwin, at the well known Irwin's Cross Roads, where most of his school years were spent.

       When the tocsin [sic] of war sounded he joined the 38th Georgia Regiment, where he served faithfully until the surrender.  Returning home he opened a mercantile business at the Cross Roads, but finding the occupation not genial at that time, he left for Texas, where he attended medical lectures, and graduated from the Medical College at Galveston in 1869.

       Returning soon after again to his old home in Georgia he assumed the practice of medicine in which he became quite proficient, and also resumed the mercantile business, in which he was to a great degree successful.  In 1872 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary V. Smith, the accomplished daughter of Dr. B. D. Smith, now of Forsyth.

       After a few years abandoning the medical profession, he devoted himself to the management of several plantations, and to his mercantile affairs until death claimed him as his own.

  • Event: Burial Site
  • Note:
    When George died in 1885, he was originally buried in the Young Family Cemetery in Washington County, Georgia.  In the 1970s, one of his grandsons, Ted Coatland Mason, had George's remains disinterred, moved to the Swainsboro City Cemetery in Emanuel County and reburied beside his wife, Mayme Vandella "Mary" (Smith) Mason Bridges.  The birthdate listed on the tombstone is the same as was on the stone in the Young Family Cemetery (that stone was left behind when the remains were moved.)

    However, that birth date might be incorrect.  George's great granddaughter, Diane Carrington Bradford, has in her possession an old list of Mason/Smith family names and dates that was handwritten by George's wife, Mayme Vandella "Mary" (Smith) Mason Bridges, as well as a photocopy of the George Lee Mason Family Bible pages.  Both sources list Dr. George Lee Mason's birth date as October 1842.
