George graduated from Pittsburg Teachers College with a B. S. in Mathematics and Social Science.

George married Pearl Byers Sept. 28, 1910, both were teachers, and George was also the superintendent of the public high school in Edna, KS.  George and Pearl never had children.

George is the grand uncle of Nancy Henning, and was James M. Vining’s 5th oldest son. He always seemed to be quite prosperous. When Nancy, her mother, Lorene Vining Brown and her sister Shari, would visit them in Chanute, KS, they would stay in their beautiful two-story home. Pearl was such a refined appearing lady.

George was the superintendent of Edna High School when Lorene Vining went there. In his later years after teaching, he sold insurance. At times George and Pearl would rent out portions of their home, as well as, complete living quarters upstairs with a full kitchen.  In the 1940’s George also was part owner of a farm that he shared with his brothers’ Harry and Lawrence.

      Hi Virginia, no George and Pearl never had children. George is my grand uncle and he was Fred Vining’s brother and James Vining’s 5th oldest son. He always seemed to be quite prosperous. When my mom and sister and myself would visit them in Chanute, KS we would stay in their beautiful two story home. Pearl was such a refined appearing lady. Uncle George was the superintendent of Edna High School when my mother Lorene Vining went there. In his later years after teaching, he sold insurance. I also remember that they rented out portions of their home at times and they even had complete living quarters upstairs with a full kitchen.
