Notes for George STORY

George Story, unmarried, is listed in the 1881 census as being a General Store Keeper in Ottawa,Ontario. He is shown to be single, and born in Ireland, and being age 67. The other people in his household are John Smith (a clerk), George Gray, and Jane Palmer (also from Ireland, and listed as a servant). Could very likely be the same George, as his birth date would be approximately1814, which is around the same time as David. There is also an entry in the 1871 cenus, showing him as a merchant, same age.

Confirmed by Anne Sterling that this is him... he was a general merchant store owner in the Byward market in Ottawa. Sold his store to nephew George Story Johnston about 1886. His mother also lived with him after his father died in 1852. She has his birth year as 1816. Does this mean he was a twin of James?

George is listed in “Lovell’s Province of Ontario Directory for 1871” as “Story Geo., storekeeper, Clarence St.” in Ottawa.

He is buried with his brother Tom (and his family).

Also from Anne Sterling:

George Story, the general merchant, (1812-1888) left 500-$600 in his will for purchase of a cemetery plot in Beechwood. There was to be a fence around it.
