Seeking information on George McIntire b.1820 or 1823. Immigrated to the U.S. in 1833 or 1836. Married and lived around Cairo IL until Civil War. Family history states that he helped kill his squad's sadistic officer and fled to N. Texas and the Oklahoma territory leaving his IL family behind. He married a woman believed to be Cherokee, possibly named Sallie (or Alice) Mae Pawburn (or Palmer) b. 1855. At some point he was a stage coach keeper in Tucumcari, NM. George and his 2nd wife's children: Thomas (1877-1929?), Euwell (1878-1909), Robert (1885-1934), William (1890-1947), Bessie (1894-196?), and Bonnie 1895/1895. They are believed to owned land in or around Granite, OK. He may have been a stone mason there. George died in 1903 and his wife died in 1895. He and his son, Thomas, are buried side by side in a cemetary between Granite and Lone Wolf OK. William may have been raised partly by an Indian tribe and by the Collins of Lone Wolf, OK.
