          Wanted to be a doctor. However, as a widow, couldn't afford it.
          He learned railroad telegraphy and put this skill to good use, working summers and at night in such places
          as Billings, Montana; Cody, Wyoming and East St. Louis to put himself through St. Louis College of Physicians
          and Surgeons. He practiced medicine in Hoyleton from June 1906 until 1920 when they moved to Nashville.
          He continued with his practice until his death in 1948.

          They built a house on Hoyleton's Main St., the front room of which was his office. Along with the usual bottles
          of medicine and books, which he used, a dental chair stood in front of the window. This was put to good use on
          Tuesday when Clara's brother, Dr. Edward Hohman came to provide dental care. Emergencies arising between
          visits had to be coped with by the young doctor as best he could. George was a familiar sight in those days riding
          around the countryside on horseback caring for the sick.
