  • Occupation: George was a coal miner, and a farmer in USA.
  • Immigration: In 1839George R Blair and Euphemia Spowart emigrated from Scotland. I don;t believe the date as stated in the 1900 census. He did not marry until 1858, and children were being born in Scotland at least until 1865.1

Military Career

Records show that George R Blair served in the armed forces. George may have been in the civil war, fighting for the Union as a Private in 100th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, Company E. However I have him in Scotland until 1864 (a child was born to Euphemia in 1865 in Saline).3
