George E Washington was born May 1863 in Arkansas per the 1900 census. (He is 47 on the 1910 census, 58 on the 1920 census and 67 on the 1930 census.)
He married "Mirandy Wimberly" in 1899 in Arkansas County. Her maiden name is unknown at this time. Maranda evidently had several children from a prior marriage, named Wimberly. On the 1900 census, they say married 1 year, but on the 1910 census, he says this is his first marriage, while she says it's her second and both say they married 18 years ago.
Per his tombstone (see below), he died in 1949, probately in Stuttgart, Arkansas County, Arkansas.I placed a lookup request here on Ancestry's Arkansas County Board and got this response:
According to the book, "Cemetery Records of Arkansas County, Arkansas",Page 290, there is a Washington, G. E., born 1863, died 1949. He is listed as buried in the Green Groves and Love's Rest Cemeteries which are located just north of Stuttgart. Both of these cemeteries are transcribed together as one so they must be connected. On the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS)government web site they are listed as two different cemeteries but very close to each other by latitude and longitude.A follow-up request located his wife Miranda:
There is only one Washington listed besides G. E. in the same cemetery; Washington, M., born 1865, died 1954, page 290. The book doesn't list the buried by rows or in alphabetical order for these two cemeteries. So the persons listed above him and below him may or may not be next to him. But here they are; above him is, Geanes, Lester, born 12/1/1941, died 9/19/1961. The person listed on line below his name is, Amos, Minnie, born 11/25/1900, died 5/12/1969. Hope this helps you.

The marriage had to take place sometime after the 1910 census when Ethel is enumerated still living with her parents. There is an Ethel Coleman 11 Nov 1893 - Mar 1979 who is listed in the SSDI as having last resided in Detroit.
