George Washington Shamblin, was born on Chestnut creek, near the Old Friendship church, in the old first district of Polk county in the year of 1849, on December 15th. He was raised on the farm and as a farmer and mechanic his labors have met with merited success. He has spent nearly all of his life, of 68 years, in Tennessee and in Polk county, except five years during which time he was a resident of Chattanooga. Mr. Shamblin was married to Miss Sarah Haskins, of Greasy Creek, Polk county, September 2nd, 1869. They are parents of ten children, seven of whom are living, Col. John S. Shamblin, of Benton, Mrs. Mary Johnson, of Ducktown, Mrs. Annie Harper of Greasy Creek, Mrs. Lucy Guinn, of Benton, Mrs. Maggie Locher, Joe L. and George Benjamin Shamblin, of Mascot, Tennessee.


Mr. Shamblin is friendly and jovial and endowed with that hospitality in his home, so often found in East Tennessee with which virtue and good citizenship go hand in hand.
