Mrs. Lane is a descendant of the author of the "Star Spangled Banner," Francis Scott Key. Her book traces Key's ancestry back to the American immigrant, Philip Key of London, who settled in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1720, and forward to a number of Key lines in the U.S. of her own era. In addition to the lineages of Key families in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the Carolinas, the author traces the Key connection to the allied families of Waller, Garrett, Cantelou, Keith, Randolph, Marshall, White, Kilpatrick, Clarke, Martin, Tandy, Terrell, and Bibb. Richly illustrated and indexed, this work also features a history of the "Star Spangled Banner."
