GEORGE McLANE, capitalist, Franklin, son of James and Rachael McLane, was born in Franklin Jan. 18, 1840. His great-grandfather on his mother's side, Edward Dearth, was among the early pioneers of this county; came here about 1800 and settled near Springboro, Clear Creek Township; and his grandfather, Isaac Dearth, is well known in this township. His grandparents on his father's side were early settlers of Butler County; settled near Monroe about 1811; afterward removed to Middletown, engaged in milling, and had the first flouring-mill in that town. George attended school in Franklin till 1853, when his parents moved to a farm three miles southeast of town. In November, 1860, he came to Franklin and opened a livery stable, corner Canal and Fourth streets; he also ran an omnibus line between Franklin and Carlisle Station; he carried on that business about seven years; he then began speculating in railroad stocks and real estate, at which he has been very successful; he has two fine farms near Red Lion, containing 216 acres, of which 190 are in a high state of cultivation; also a fine residence on Fifth street, and two brick buildings on Center street. He was married, in Franklin, in 1862, Jan. 1, to Emily, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Winters, born in Franklin Aug. 3, 1844; they have three children-—Wilbur R., Carrie E. and Edward.
