    Notes 
    • Noble writes that he "Lived in Sabine County and was a charter member of the Jackson Masonic Lodge of Milam. He was a land speculator like his father and brother, Matthew. In 1881, he sold 20 A. to Wm. M Reese and S.E. Collier for the Sabine Valley University in Hemphill."

      Henson and Parmalee indicate he was a blacksmith (p. 42). The authors also speculate that "George Cartwright may have taken his wife and small daughter Mary to California [during the Gold Rush]. The tax assessor in Sabine County listed him as a nonresident, and his name appears nowhere in Texas in the 1850 and 1860 censuses. George's five-year-old son Sanford lived with Uncle Richard Cartwright in San Augustine in 1850 and went to school in Shelby County for the next two years. George was back in Sabine County on June 5, 1860, when his steam mill exploded, damaging the machinery. He told a friend that he was "not dispirited" and thought he could repair it. (ibid, p 165). In a footnote, the authors also cite the "Diary of C. C. Cox," 49, [which] mentions a company of families from eastern Texas, including a blacksmith.
