      GEORGE W. LANE was born 1791 in Barnwell Co SC to Stephen Crawford Lane and Elizabeth Campbell.   He married Louisa Caroline Lloyd (widow of Wilson Hodge) 22 Feb 1840 in Montgomery, AL,  daughter of Martin Lloyd and Eliza Freeman.   Issue: Crawford Jackson Lane born 10 Dec 1840, married Emaline Welch; Martin born 12 Feb 1843; Eliza J. born 25 Apr 1844; married S.

      George’s father died in Montgomery Co Al in 1844.  It was at this time he brought his family to Texas, settling and purchasing land in Fayette Co TX.  His 100-acre farm was located four miles southeast of La Grange on the south side of the Colorado River. George’s mother,  Mrs.  Elizabeth Lane with her other children, came to Texas about this same time.
      Shortly after George’s mother died, 25 Dec 1851, he, Caroline and some of the children moved back to Montgomery Co AL, which is where their last child, Charles, was born. Family tradition is that George was returning to Alabama when he was robbed, killed and his body thrown in the Mississippi River.  No record of their deaths have been found in Texas or Alabama.
