d. 1848
Family Background:
Munson and Allied Families
     George Ann Sutherland married William Benjamin Munson, son of Henry William Munson and Ann Binum Pearce, on 13 May 1847 at Texana, Jackson County, Texas.1 She died in 1848.1
     George Ann's brother, William Depriest Sutherland, was killed at the Battle of the Alamo, and the Sutherland family Bible is preserved in the Alamo where one may read the entry of the marriage of William Benjamin and George Ann. They were married less than a year and died within a few months of each other in 1848. It is not known who died first because there are conflicting dates regarding the death of George Ann. The Munson bible gives the date of her death as February 22 and William's as March 18. The Caldwell-Munson bible gives the date of her death as July 22. They had no children.2
