LANE, James (Jim)
Looking for any info on grandfather above who died Dec. 1924 in Scott County, VA. His 2nd marriage to my grandmother, Otela Ellen Gilliam, produced 9 children.

His 1st marriage produced 7 children: Callie, Connely, Mounie, Ray, Garland, Mabel, Mary Jane, Bessie (who died at 14). I don't know who their mother was, but some of the decendents of these 1st children might have some info on James (Jim) Lane, such as DOB, where he came from, etc.

LANE, John R.
We are hunting for the ancestors of John Robert (or Robertson) Lane. He was born on August 18, 1823 in Tennessee. He married Algemire Amanda King, born December 5, 1829 in Kentucky. They were married in 1845 . They had 5 children-Susie, Elzie, Radford, Irvin & Elizabeth. They moved to Bosque County, Texas in 1875, where him and 2 of his sons built a church - Lane's Chapel. and eventually the community was renamed Lane's Chapel in honor of the Lane Boys .

John Robertson Lane had a brother named Samuel. Samuel married Mary Ellen Harrison and they had 4 or 5 children. They, too, moved to Lane's Chapel, Bosque Co., Texas, from Missouri.

John R Lane is my g-g-grandfather, and we have his down line, but would like to know more about where they came from and the upline and sideline of the family.
Thanks to anyone who can help.

LANE, Herbert, Henry Mark, and Charles
I am trying to trace my Lane ancestors in the British Isles. I know that my father, Herbert Lane, was born in Bristol England 22 May 1904. He and his parents came to Canada when he was 10 weeks old.

My Grandfather, Henry Mark Lane, born 6 Jan 1869 in the Hope area of Wales, was married to Selina Kate Burnett, born 20 Sep 1867.

My G Grandfather, Charles Lane, was possibly born in Liverpool, England, and was married to Jane Gould. They possibly had 7 children; Ada, Minnie, Emily, Henry Mark, Charles, Ann, and Dorothy.

To the best of my knowledge, my father's family were the only ones to cross the big pond. I have written to a couple of the relatives in Bristol, but I have not received anything other than confirmation that they received my letter (two years ago).

If there are any Lane researchers who have any good leads in England, I would appeciate anything that they can give me.

LANE, Emma and Charles
I am researching Emma (LANE) Padbury born circa 1843/44 in Milton, Oxfordshire, England. She married John Padbury in Sutton-under-Brailles, Warwickshire, England on October 26, 1861. I have found them on the 1871 census that is online on the web but lose them between then and when they emigrated to Ontario, Canada sometime in the mid 1870's.

On the marriage certificate Emma's father is listed as Charles LANE. I am trying to find siblings, her mother, and whether or not any of them emigrated to Canada or the U.S. I can go back to 1680 on the Padburys but my LANES elude me. I have most of Emma's info. from her time in Canada.

Thank you,

LANE'S of Scott Co., VA
I need any information I can get on the early Lane families in Scott Co., Va. ( formerly Russell Co.) before about 1800. My line is listed below:

Den Lane ( just turned 89 in Oct.) Father
James Basil Lane Grandfather d 1947
William H. Lane Ggrandfather d ? in Ky.
Corbin Martin Lane GGgrandfather d ? in Ky.
Corbin Lane GGGgrandfather d 1869 in Scott Co.

I think Corbin Lane's father was also Corbin Lane possible from eastern Va. or maybe from Baltimore Md.

LANE, John
Need parents/ancestors of the John LANE, b. 1791 MD, who later m. Elizabeth PARROTT, (also b. MD) 1821 Warren Co OH. Family lore says that his father, James, arrived as ship's crew VA/MD, jumping ship upon arrival (thus leaving NO immigration trail). While I might like to link this branch to those more prestigeous/better documented, I have found no VALID way to do so. Can you?

LANE, John Edward
I am looking for the ancestors of John Edward Lane. He was born on 14 Sept. 1885 in Phelps County, Mo. I have no records of siblings or parents, although I believe his parents were Charles Lane and Julie Ann Trout. Charles and Julie are buried in Dickson Cemetery, outside Cherokee City, Benton County, Ar.
John married Lora Allan Shipley (born 28 May 1899 in Dade County, Mo.). I believe they were married in Benton County, Ar. but have not confirmed it.
John and Lora had 6 children. William, Opal, Howard, Ray, George, and Irene.
William is my grandfather.
John worked/owned farms in Benton County, Ar and Delaware County, Ok. He also served as a mail carrier in Delaware County and ran a drug store in Delaware County (specifically in the Row/Colcord area).
John died on 30 Mar 1962 in Claremore, Ok. after suffering a stroke. I do know he was in a nursing home after the stroke. Lora died on 22 June 1944. Both are buried in Afton, Ok. where John worked on his last farm. After Lora passwd away in 1944, John did remarry, but no one that I have spoken to remembers who this person was. Apparently, she did not stay after John suffered the stroke.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have a web page at:
