About George Gardiner, Jr.

George Gardner originally married Sarra/Sarah Slaughter. She died at sea with two of their three sons, none of which were George. After she died, George then lived with Herodias Long HIcks. It was either a common law marriage OR a Quaker marriage, that part is undefined. They had six or seven kids together. George Gardner and Herodias Long Hicks parted ways so Herodias could marry a "wealthy land owner." George Gardner then went on to marry Ludia Ballon and they had six or seven more children.

No documentation could be found stating whether Herodias Long Hicks or Ludia Ballon was George's mother. (born 1650)
