September 9, 1909
Mary Ingram was born in Franklin county, Ohio, February 5, 1828, where she grew to womanhood. She was married to William N. Lane, who was a native of Fayette county, Ohio, February 24, 1850. To them were born ten children, four sons and six daughters, seven of whom, three sons, John and Henry, both living in Lucas, Iowa, and Malachi, of Des Moines, Iowa, and four daughters, Mrs. Mary Sydebotham, of Courtland, Nebraska, Mrs. Hettie Hutchins, of Lucas, Iowa, Mrs. Belle McHale, of Omaha, Nebraska, and Mattie Hutchins, of Hescomsfield, Iowa, are still living and were all at the funeral. Mother Lane was at the time of her death, the mother, grandmother and great-grandmother of even one hundred descendents, the most of whom were present at the funeral.
Bro. and Mister Lane moved to Vermillion county, Illinois, in 1854 and to Lucas county, Iowa, in 1858, where with the exception of two years spent in Washington county, Iowa, they made their home until death.
Mother Lane endured the loneliness of widowhood for ten years, her companion having died in May of 1899.
While she was a woman of a quiet and unobtrusive disposition, she had the kindest of hearts; she was kind and sympathetic and a true friend to every body. She never indulged in harsh and unkind criticisms of any one, and was never known to have an enemy. A friend once said to me, "If there ever was a kinder woman than Mother Lane, it has not been my good fortune to meet her." She was sick about eight months, during which time she suffered severely, but endured it with patience and resignation.
She retained her consciousness to the last moments, and as the end approached expressed her willingness to answer the Master's summons. Shortly before passing away, she said that all was clear and she was ready to go. She closed her eyes calmly and serenely as a ? of a summer evening, and her spirit returned to God who gave it.
What a comfort to the children to whom she was so tenderly devoted to know that the mother whom they loved so dearly is at rest; her labors ended, her sorrows past and she is enjoying the reward of the good and the true. She died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hutchins, in Lucas, Iowa, August 30, 1909 at the advanced age of 82 years, 6 months and 25 days.
The funeral was held in the M. E. church of Lucas, and she was buried in the Chariton cemetery. A. C. H.
William N. Lane, died at his home in Lucas Friday, May 26, 1890. Mr. Wm N. Lane, aged 69 years, 3 months, 8 days. The remains were brought to Chariton for interment Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and services were conducted by Rev. W. H. Larrick of Woodburs.
Mr. Lane was born in Fayette county, Ohio, February 18, 1830. Was married to Miss Mary Ingram February 24, 1850 and came to Iowa in 1856. For a long time he resided in Liberty township and from there he moved to Lucas, where he has since resided. He united with the M. E. church in 1851 and lived a faithful, Christian life. He was the father of ten children, seven of whom are living, and who were present at the funeral. He has 32 grandchildren and 6 great grand children, most of whom were present at the funeral. he was a loving husband and father, a kind neighbor, and his many friends extend their sympathies to the bereaved wife and children.

MALACHI LANE DIES
Malachi Lane was born February 6, 1809 in Franklin Co., Ohio to William Lane and unknown. He married Elizabeth Rion/Ryan/Ryun , the daughter of Benjamin and Nancy Rion/Ryan April 17, 1828 in Madison Co., Ohio.
To this union eight children were born, William Newton, James Albert, Samuel H., Margaret F., Adam W., Benjamin H. Lewis L. They adopted a son John O. Huddleston according to census records.
The family left Ohio and moved to Lucas Co., IA in 1855. They first appear on this census. Malachi was a farmer by trade until his health became so severe he could no longer work. Their son Benjamin H. worked and supported his parents. When he enlisted into the Civil War, part of his pay was sent to his parents so they would have money to live. He was killed in the War and so Malachi applied for his pension, but was turned down. His mother Elizabeth then applied for the pension and after many affidavits and letters was given a pension.
Malachi died May 26, 1882 in probably Union Twp. Wayne Co., IA. He is buried in the Chariton Cemetery, Chariton, Lucas Co., IA.
( No obituary was found in the local newspapers for Malachi, so I have written one for him. Freida Wells 2-25-09)
