The 1900 census indicates that George emigrated to the United States in 1862. He would have traveled to Utah sometime between then and when he married Elizabeth Bradfield in 1865. Secondary sources indicate that he married Elizabeth Bradfield on the trail. If this is true, it is likely he was traveling in the Samuel White 1866 Company with her, but further research is needed to verify this.
His wife is documented in Oak City, Utah at the time of a rebaptism on 11 June 1867 in the Oak City Ward.
