    Residence 1859  Syracuse, Onondaga, New York, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    • From the entry in the city directory, it's unclear if George lived on N Salina St near his newspaper's office, or if he actually lived in Salina just north of the city.

      George was not included in the 1857 Syracuse directory, so he likely moved to Syracuse between the publication of those two books.
