George was born possibly in Mooney Township, [[Phillips County, Arkansas|Phillips County]], [[Arkansas]].
  
On Apr 2, 1860 three Tackett brothers went to the land office in Helena to purchase land in Arkansas County.
+
George married an unknown first wife by 1854 and had two children [[Alice Tackett (1854-1934)|Alice]] and Marcus.  This first wife is not listed with him and his children in the 1860 Federal Census.  He married again in 1861.
  
As "George L Tackett of Phillips County", he entered [http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/PatentSearch/Detail.asp?Accession=AR1760%5F%5F%2E377&Index=7&QryID=64266%2E45&DetailTab=2 160 acres by Cash Entry] at NW S33-T6S-R2W.  He also enters 160 acres at NE S32-T6S-R2W, again by Cash EntryHowever on this document he calls himself "George L Tackett of Arkansas County"These two pieces touch each other, forming a rectangle.

In the Phillips County Court House at Helena AR are these two deeds, proving the relationship of [[Mount Etna Tacket]] to George L Tackett:
 +

*12 April 1855 - M.E.Tackett to G.L.Tackett "to my brother and his wife", 240 acres, for love and affection and $50  Deed Book M, Pg. 629
  
As "Edmond P G Tackitt of Phillips County", his brother, entered 160 acres by Cash Entry, at SE S28-T6S-R2W.  This document is marked Cancelled and has other writing across it that I can't make out.  This land touches George's at the Southwest corner.

On Apr 2, 1860 at the land office in Helena are these grants to purchase land in Arkansas County:
  
As "Mount Etna Tackett of Phillips County", their brother, entered 80 acres by Cash Entry, at E1/2SW S21-T6S-R2W. This land sits a quarter-section above E P's land, but a year later in 1861, Mount Etna came back and bought that intermediate quater-section as well.

You can see how the lands of George L Tackett, Mount Etna Tacket and Edmond P G Tackett intersect [http://www.countyhistorian.com/picture_library/Tackett.JPG here].

 +
Many years after George's death, his three surviving children file a lawsuit against E P G Tackett, et al claiming mismanagement of the estate. E P G Tacket had been the administrator.  The lawsuit dragged on for several years, and contains several depositions.  In one of these, a Emily Honeywell, age 41 at 11 Nov 1884, states that "George was my uncle".  In 1880 Emma Honeywell is living, as a widow in Arkansas County, and in 1860 "Emly Tackett" age 20, born AR is living in the household of "E M Tackett" at De Witt.
