George H. March was born in 1840, in New York, the son of Thomas (b. 1818) and Rebecca R. (b. 1822).
New York natives Thomas and Rebecca were probably married in New York someitme before 1840. They moved to Michigan from New York perhaps as early as 1840 certainly between 1842 and 1844, and may have moved back to New York around 1852. In any case, by 1860 George was a farm laborer living with his family in Lyons, Ionia County.
George was 21 years old and probably still living with his family in Ionia County when he enlisted in Company E on May 13, 1861.
He was either killed in action or mortally wounded and left on the field at Second Bull Run on August 29, 1862, and was presumably buried among the unknown soldiers from Second Bull Run who were reinterred in Arlington National Cemetery.
No pension seems to be available.
George’s father was probably living in Dallas, Clintno County in 1870.
