Born Jul 2 18621 [about 18642], Struer, Jutland, Denmark1.
Note: although George's birthdate has been published as Jul 2 1862, it seems more likely that he was born in late 1860. On Aug 27 1861 George's mother was issued a U.S. passport "to be accompanied by her child a boy about 1 year & 10 month old".3 However when he and his mother and sister returned to the U.S. in 1867 George was recorded as age 5 (making him born about 1862).4
George lived in Brooklyn, New York.1,2
In the 1920s and 1930s, George was the editor of "Brooklyn Life", a weekly publication. He was a marvelous writer and commentator, and also took a keen interest in sports, especially yachting and tennis. George's sister, Cornelia Gracie, also wrote for "Brooklyn Life".5
