GEORGE H. SPALDING
JUNE 1, 1819
MAY 20, 1908
Even trying variations on the names SPAULDING or SPALDING, I was unable to trace George Spalding in the Massachusetts records. The death index at the Hawaii State Archiveslists George as the uncle of E. I. Spalding, born 3 June 1854 in Honolulu and died 20 June 1935, the son of Josiah and Elizabeth Spalding.
In the book Spalding Memorial: A Genealogical History of Edward Spalding, of Massachusetts Bay and his Descendants , by Samuel Jones Spalding, 1872, on page 357, it lists the following:
6893. JOSIAH 7  (Samuel 6, Samuel 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, Andrew 2, Edward 1), b. Feb. 15, 1797. He was for many years master of a vessel.
"Captain Josiah Spalding, one of our best citizens, died suddenly of apoplexy, on Friday evening. He had been out in the afternoon, although his health had for some time been feeble from similar attacks. He had been a resident of Salem from his boyhood, and became a very successful ship-master, retiring from the seas some years ago, having realized a competency. He was a gentleman of great amiablility and inegrity of character, a patriotic and exemplary citizen, and always ready with heart and hand to aid in every good work" [Salem Register, Monday, April 6, 1868]
He m. Rebecca Chapman, of Salem, Ms, April 10, 1825; she was b. Feb. 5, 1800 in Salem, Ms.

6897. Ellen Rebecca, b. Feb. 15, 1836

The year of birth is different, but I think we may have the same person here.
