The trouble is that the G has a 'tail' which is not on George

Perhaps a lower-case g corrected to an upper case G?

Quite possible.  I am always very wary of 'Ancestry'  corrections.  I suppose it should be kept in mind.

George must have died between ca 1877 - birth of George Herbert - & 1881
Am looking for Eleanor's return to England to tie down date of George's death closer.

ADDED: George is in the Troy city Directory 1871 - 1876 - gardener

There are two Troy newspapers available online for that time period and I didn't see him or his family mentioned anywhere from 1871-1881.

The Lansingburgh courier. (Lansingburgh [i.e. Troy], N.Y.) 1875-1909

The Troy weekly times. (Troy, N.Y.) 1856-1895
