Hello everyone! I am new to this list and I am seeking information about my Lane ancestors who sometimes spelled their name Lain. Here is what I know:
My great grandmother, Lula Mae Lane, was born December 3, 1868 at Bono, Craighead Co., Arkansas. She married Alexander T. Reaves, who was born February 27, 1864 at Harrisburg, Poinsett Co. Arkansas. They were married December 2, 1886.
Lula Mae Lane's father, Thomas Nicholas Lane, was born about 1844 in Craighead Co. Arkansas. A story handed down in the family is that he was a Confederate soldier who lost an arm in the war, but I have found no documentation for this. He married Mary Taylor March 11, 1868 in Craighead Co., Arkansas. Mary was born in Limestone Co., Alabama, June 27, 1844. Thomas N. Lane died in 1873 at Cherry Valley in Cross Co., Arkansas. Two years later, Mary married Gabriel Marion Settlemire.
The father of Thomas N. Lane was William Quillen Lane, born September 15, 1817 in Bedford Co., Tennessee. Thomas' mother was Levina Caroline Harris, born about 1823 in Tennessee. They were married sometime before 1845, and were among the pioneering families of northeastern Arkansas.
It is possible that the father of William Quillen Lane was Thomas Alexander Lane, born about 1778 in North Carolina. He was married to Mary Bradshaw, who was born about 1790 in Georgia.
I would appreciate any information about this Lane/Lain family or related lines. -- Dayton Cook
