LANE'S in England
When I was in England this past March, I came across a LANE graveyard at the Coningsby General Baptist Chapel Cemetery in Coningsby, Lincolnshire ENG. The graveyard is in terrible condition and I would dearly love to find some present day LANE descendants who would be interested in helping me get it fixed up. These LANES are my family's ancestors and the brief details about them are as follows:

Samuel LANE, b. ca 1768 in Tattershall Thorpe, Lincolnshire ENG., m. Sarah HUNT 13 Dec 1798 in Coningsby, Lincolnshire ENG. Sarah's parents were Abraham HUNT and Sarah YEATS, both of Coningsby. Samuel LANE died 17 Jun 1847 and Sarah (HUNT) LANE died 13 May 1837. They are both buried in the Baptist Chapel Cemetery, as is Abraham HUNT and Sarah YEATS. Samuel and Sarah had one son, Samuel (Jr.), b. ca 1800 in Tattershall Thorpe and who was also buried in the Lane cemetery on 17 Jun 1854.

If you would be interested in finding out more about this "project" please contact me. My name and email address is: Nan Clark

LANE, George Washington
Grandmother: Shirley Georgia LANE of Jefferson Co., TN
Grandfather: Unknown
GreatGrandfather: George Washington LANE of Jefferson Co., TN
Somehow related to the BARBEES and PHILLIPS.

Supposedly my greatgrandparents were Indian - one full blood, the other 1/2. Somewhere down the line, they came from NC or where they lived turned from NC to TN, not sure.
Lots to go on - right? My family never wrote things down - they just passed things down vocally.

Again, thanks for your assistance. Dennis Norton

LANE, Nathaniel
A Mary Lane Jones, d. 1873 in childbirth. She had nine children. Her fifth (a dau. named Elizabeth Georgiana Atkinson) was born 16 Feb 1861. If she was indeed the fifth child and there was 1.5 years between children, that would indicate that Mary Lane Jones had married G.W. Atkinson around 1853. My guess is that she was born between 1833 and 1837. Her mother was a Martha Lane who was married on 29 Apr 1829 to an Austin Jones.

Additional family genealogy has placed this Martha (Lane) Jones as the daughter of Joel Lane's son Henry through his marriage to his cousin Mary Hinton. We also know that E.Georgiana (Atkinson) William (16 Feb 1861 - 7 Dec 1932) was "very close" to her cousins, Janie Lane Brown & Joseph Lane Brown. who were children of Lydia Speight (Lane) and Fabius Brown. Now, Lydia Speight (Lane) Brown was the granddaughter of Joel Lane's brother Joseph Lane (1710-1776) and his wife Patience McKinne.

The Problem is that somewhere among old family papers, we have turned up a note that describes a Martha Ann Lane who, with her sisters Lucinda (Lane) Avera, Emma (Lane) Walters, and Lydia (Lane) Bonner(?) - were children of a Nathaniel Lane and Esther A. Elizabeth Smith. The note claims that THIS Martha Ann Lane was married on 29 Apr 1829 to Austin Jones.

The lineage of this Martha Ann Lane's mother is: Esther A. Elizabeth Smith > dau. of Jonathan Smith (son of Col. Samuel and Edith (Whitfield) Smith of Johnston Co. NC) and Esther Bryan (b. 1760) (dau of Wm and Esther (Bryan) Smith). Esther Bryan and Jonathan Smith were first cousins.

No lineage is given for Martha Ann Lane's father, Nathaniel Lane. Since Elizabeth Georgiana (Atkinson) Smith (daughter of some Martha Lane who married an Austin Jones) knew her cousins to be the Brown's descended from Joseph Lane - I must assume that Nathaniel was of the same generation as Henry Lane (son of Joel), but son of one of Joel Lane's other brothers or one of his uncles.

Does ANYONE out there know of a Nathaniel Lane somewhere in that line?

LANE, Isham
Isham LANE was born in Louisa Co., VA Sept. 1757 and died in Madison Co., KY, 20 June 1852. According to information by Raymond Layne (now deceased) his father was married twice and had 16 sons, 7 of whom served in the Rev. War. His military record - Vol. 3, Page 116 (514) Senate Document.

According to Mr. Layne, Isham went to Tennessee just after the war and in two years moved to Kentucky following the Boone Trail. He settled in what is now Madison Co., KY. He is buried there and a marble stone marks his grave.
March 6, 1790, he married Lucinda Lamb, dau of Richard Lamb.

Does anyone have a record of this Isham Lane's being in the family of Edward Lane Jr. (circa 1730-1786)? The only information we have is that he probably was a son of this Edward.
I would appreciate receiving proof of Isham's parentage.

Thanks for the opportunity to ask. Email Maxine Bowling Friedly

LANE, John Edward
My ggrandfather was John Edward Lane, born: 14 Sept. 1885 in Benton County, Mo. He died on 30 March 1962. He was married to Lora Allen Shipley, born 28 May 1889, died 22 Jun 1944, daughter of William and Matilda (Allen?) Shipley. Both John and Lora are buried in Afton, Oklahoma.

I know that there is a Charles Lane buried in Hickson Cemetery, Cherokee City, Ark. Is he John's father?? I believe that Charles was married to Julie Trout(?). I don't have Charles' dob or dod with me. I took pictures of the headstones. I was there looking for the Howertons who are buried there. I know there is a connection between the Lanes and Howertons, they were my grandparents William Charles Lane and Derryle Elizabeth Howerton.

Appreciate any assistance. My homepage is My Home Page It has not been updated recently and I am working on that.
