My uncle has been named executor over the building I reside in. We have a lease but he has told us to move so they can get money for building the railroad is purchasing. Can he make me move before my lease is up?

Without reviewing the lease, it is difficult to say. Generally, he would be required to live up to the terms of the lease.
An attorney will need to review the lease and research the controlling law to answer your question. I would be willing to do so for a reasonable fee. Feel free to contact me directly.
I agree with the others about having the lease reviewed. Sometimes in anticipation of an estate situation, where the property might be sold, a landlord may reserve the right to terminate to free up the building. If you're not sure if this kind of clause is in the lease, it's time to have a professional check.
