Biographical data
Name: Whitehead, J. George  
   Also known as: George Whitehead
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Forster gives name as 'Whitehead, [J.] George', and Edgar gives 'Whitehead, J. George', so presumably he went by the name 'George' and did not always use the first initial. The Birmingham Daily Post of 30 Jan. 1893 and the Manchester Weekly Times of 3 Feb. 1893, for example, have him listed as 'G. Whitehead'.
