In the 1810 Meck. Co. census, George Morrow is located near Jno. W. Morrow and Martha Morrow. In his family 2 males under 10 (b. 1800-1810), 1 male 10-16 (b. 1794-1800), 3 males 16-26 (b. 1784-1794), 1 male over 45 (himself, b. bef 1765), 1 female under 10 (b. 1800-1810), 1 female over 45 (wife).

In the 1820 Meck. Co. census, George Morrow lives near Robert Morrow, John Morrow and William Busby, who married Mary Morrow, Martha Morrow, Isaac Morrow and John W. Morrow. In his family, 1 male 10-15 (b. 1805-1810), 1 male 16-18 (b. 1802-1804), 1 male 18-26 (b. 1794-1802), 2 males 26-45 (1775-1794), 1 male over 45 (self), 1 female under 10, 1 female over 45.

The 1830 census shows no George Morrow over 45, so it is assumed that he died by then.

11/24/1820 John Sloan, sheriff of Mecklenburg Co., at public sale, sells the lands of George Morrow to Wm. Lee Davidson to satisfy a debt owed by Morrow to Davidson. The parcel of 197 acres on the headwaters of Beaverdam Creek was originally owned by John Morrow, dec'd., and left to George Morrow in the Will of John. The tract borders a tract owned by the heirs of Robert Morrow and also land owned by Jno. Connelly with a corner to Alexander Washam's land.

The public sale to satisfy a debt to Wm. Lee Davidson seems to indicate that George had died by then, as there were no goods or possessions available to satisfy the debt. In 1830, the land was bought back by Isaac Morrow, listed in the deed record as the son of George.
