The Georges had two sons, Theodore Augustas and Louis, before Ebenezer died of tuberculosis (which happened before 1880). Mary Elizabeth George, or Elizabeth as she preferred to be called, married George Gregory on 14 Jul 1881 in Charleston, South Carolina. She was a dressmaker by trade.

Mary Elizabeth Gregory died from spinal menengitis in 1891.
