George Lane is a 7th generation Presbyterian in Tennessee (probably a 15th generation if you count Scottish roots). Samuel Doak is his 5th great-grandfather and there have been Presbyterian elders in every generation. While not a history major he has always has a strong interest in history. He has several generations in the graveyard of Gambles. Rev Waw is a strong interest and there are 20 veterans in the family line. He is active in the Sons of the Revolution and participated in the Ceremony of Dedication at Eusebia Presbyterian Church. George was President of the Knoxville Civil War Round Table and often appears in the Uniform of a USA Major of Calvary.  He also has a Confederate ancestor. Several years ago he started a project to update the History of the Presbyterian Church in Blount County. The article appeared in the Blount County Genealogical and HIstorical Society publication. George has updated the article several times as he finds more references to early inactive churches and mission activities. Currently he is the president of the Blount County HIstorical Museum. He has been a Deacon at Westminster Presbyterian in Nashville and an Elder at Westminster Presbyterian in Knoxville. He was raised at Clover Hill and Mt Tabor. Presbyterian Churches. He has been a stockbroker and small business owner and has three daughters and four grandchildren.
