- Born: 17 Feb 1839, North Carolina, United States 2539
- Died: 22 Dec 1866 2539
- Buried: Cedar Creek Baptist Church, Cumberland County, North Carolina, United States 2539
Noted events in his life were:
1. Census, 1840, Bladen County, North Carolina, United States. Valentine Downing's household includes two M<5 [Daniel, George] (Bladen Co, p209)
2. Census, 1850, Cumberland County, North Carolina, United States. George W Downing is 11, living with parents. (Cumberland Co, Eastern Division, p68)
3. Military Service: Confederate Soldier. 2537 George W Downing was member of Co H, Reg 36. [I believe the entry in reference is incorrect, when it identifies this George W Downing as the one who is buried at Brier Branch Bapt Ch, son of George and M A Downing. That George W Downing would have been too old. This George W Downing had several brothers who were listed in the reference.] [This also conflicts with the Evan Downing Family Bible, which identifies Evan's son George as being the person who died on 22 Aug 1863 and was a Private in Co H, Reg 36]
