    Capt Hendee's Company 
    • As a member of the Rutland County Voluteers, George was on call for the Battle of Plattsburg, during the close of the War of 1812. As the story is told, on the 10th of September the men, including George, who had assembled in response to the call met in the village. After organizing, which occupied the forenoon, the company started for Burlington. Arriving at Vergennes the next day, they drew arms from the arsenal for those who were not supplied and continued to Charlotte, which they reached that night. The following morning they advanced to Burlington, crossed the lake to Plattsburg, but arrived too late to take part in the battle; they soon afterward returned to their homes.

    Notes 
    • After the Battle of Plattsburg, George turned his steps to the St.Lawrence River where rafting was being carried along to a great extent. He there hired to work, where French and Indians were his companions and neighbors, the latter being his most trusted friends. After having served in the capacity of raftsman until 1817 he returned to Pittsford, Vt. where his father still lived and paid him $100. This was the price of his time as a minor. After working a farm on shares for one year, in the Spring of 1819, he, with his young wife and brother-in-law, David Wadsworth, set out for the far west, Mt.Vernon, Ohio, where an elder sister, Azuba Hewett, of his wife had preceded them. George and David had each a horse so by putting them together, contituted a team. By hitching them to a lumber wagon they were able to bring all their worldly possessions with them. After journeying for weeks they finally arrived at South Dansville, New York where they were to make his sister, Mrs. Hendee, a visit and to rest for the remainder of their journey. After looking around for sometime and being earnestly persuaded by Mr. and Mrs. Hendee, they decided to remain in South Dansville, David Wadsworth in the meantime put his belongings in a knapsack and with a sad heart, mounted his horse and rode away to the western wilds of Ohio. George then took up a farm where Miner Bridge now resides(1905). After staying there a few years he moved to a farm just west of him, known as the Stevens Farm, where he lived until the Spring of 1831. During his stay in what is now called Rogersville, early in the Fall of 1831, there came a knock at the door. There were Milly's father, mother, widowed sister and two children on their way to Ohio where two brothers and two sisters were awaitng them. After about four or five weeks visiting with their daughter Milly and family they took their departure never more to meet. George, in the meantime continued clearing his land and building as he was prospering. "In the Fall of 1839 his true and noble wife was taken from him by the relentless hand of death." George now had a longing to visit the Old Home once more. So in the Fall of 1840, he, with his nephew, John Mark Hendee, started to Vermont. They were six weeks making the journey. In January the following year he married Racheal Henderson, a widow with two children. In the 1850 census of Dansville,Steuben Co.,NY, George is listed as a farmer and owner of real estate valued at $3,000. Also living with him according to the 1850 census: his wife, Rachel, sons, Paul, Leeds, George Jr., and step-daughter, Abbie Henderson. In his later life, as a Democrat, he was elected to many town offices. "George was a man of sterling integrity and being a man of few words and coming right to the point, he commanded the respect of all who knew him."
