NOTE:  "George Sinnock came to America in the spring of 1837 coming to Quincy, Illinois, where he worked for a time at Shoe Making. The year following he moved to Payson, where he engaged in the Shoe Business and spent the rest of his days. He was a faithful member of the Methodist Church, a strong prohibitionist, in politics a Republican."   quote from his younger brother, Thomas, abt 1910

George was the second known Sinnock to migrate to America from the family home in Sedlescombe, East Sussex, near Battle, just north of Hastings on the coast. He immigrated as an 18 year old in 1837, following his younger brother, Sam, Jr., who as a 15 year old came to America alone in 1836. Perhaps the brothers planned their adventure together, perhaps even with the family's blessing, who all followed about 15 years later. George and Sarah have 559 known descendants through their eight children (in order of birth): Angeline, Lucy, Charles Wesley, James William, Kay, Mary Etta, Carrie and George E.; brother of Sam Jr., Mary Ann, Harriett, Charles Wesley, James William, and Thomas; oldest son of Sam and Mary Sinnock.
