    NOTE:  Obviously, someone other than George gave information about him to the census enumerator, and just as obviously George never made his marital status or his age clear to his landlady because he was not widowed in 1930 and he was 62.  In fact, both of his wives outlived him.  His first wife, Octavia Tyner, from whom he was divorced, lived until 1951.  His second wife, Mamie (Mason) Sherouse, lived until 1958, and George was still married to her when he died 3 Jan 1940.
