Need info on Nicholas Lanier who may have been married to Mary
He was son of John Lanier and Sarah Edmunds. Born about 1690 or 1693. Am I
right to think that he had sonThomas Lanier married to Elizabeth Hicks?
According to the book Lanier by Louise Ingersoll, Nicholas Lanier was the
father of Thomas Lanier who married Elizabeth Hicks. This is my line also,
through Thomas' daughter Rebekah and indirectly through another daughter Sarah. But
I've not found anyone who has supporting documentation for Nicholas being
Thomas' father. It all seems to go back to Ingersoll's book, and she gives no
sources. Without documentation, there's no way to know who the real father is.
I'd be interested to know which of Thomas' children is your ancestor.
