George took over his father's stone quarry in Irelandafter his two older brothers William, and John, left for Toronto in1844. Three years later in 1847 the new world called upon George aswell. In the early summer George, his pregnant wife Suzanna, andtheir newborn baby Sarah Jane packed their belongings into trunks andaccompanied by some family members, walked 110 miles from Old Leighlanto the port town of Cork. They sail for the New World, strugglingagainst the sea for six weeks only to be blown back to Ireland. On thethird attempt at crossing, George was washed overboard during a fierceAtlantic ocean storm, and was given up as lost. When dawn came and thestorm subsided, George was found clinging to ropes against the ship'shull. George and his family settled in the Ottawa (Bytown) area in1847. He worked at first for a farmer in Bell's Corners, but soonbought property near Vars which would become the Marshall homestead.This property has remained in the family ever since. George andSusanna built a log house, which stood for over one hundred years onthe old Marshall homestead. (It is presently standing in Milton, onfamily property owned by Lillian Smith.)
