I hope you're still researching the Lanier line since the message to which I'm
replying is over a year old. I'm searching for the family of Solomon J. Lanier, b.
c1835, and also his death date. He married Francis M. Vowell (my Vowell line) in 1854 in
Weakley Co., TN. My Vowell line came from Guilford Co. NC area to Wilson Co. TN and then
some moved on to Weakley Co., TN -- some to Arkansas, and some to Texas and Oklahoma. In
1850, I found the following Lanier family in the Wilson Co. TN census.
LANIER, William 36 NC
Jane 35 NC
Hartwell? 23 NC
Andrew 17 TN
George 13 TN
Henry 11 TN
John 9 TN
Joseph 3 TN
Elizabeth 20 TN
I believe this may be your family. Have you, by any chance, found a Solomon J. Lanier, b.
c1833, in your Lanier research? I wondered if he might be connected with this family in
some way. Thanks very much.
