George was a son of George Washington Lady and Anise G. Poore. He married (1) Ellen Shipley 28 November 1883 in Sullivan County, Tennessee, and they had just one child: Decatur Lee Lady, who was raised by Ellen's parents, Ben and Edna Shipley.

George married (2) Florence S. Snodgrass 7 July 1888 in Sullivan County, Tennessee. They raised nine children to maturity:

Thomas Plenny
Mary Jeanette
James Roy "J.R."
Carrie A.
Bertha
Eula Elizabeth
George Fostine "Teener"
Walter P.
Arthur Monroe "Dick"

George farmed in the vicinity of Fordtown for many years. He took over the operation of a new flour mill when his sons were old enough to do the chores.

According to one of his sons, George was a very religious man who knew Jesus as his Saviour and led his family in Bible reading and family prayer. He and his family were active members of the Bethel Methodist church

In later years he had a "heart condition" and had a special bench at the mill that he could lie down on "when he felt weak."

He was "taken sick" at suppertime on a Friday night and died at 3:30 Sunday morning, apparently of a stroke.
