                   Chapter One: Speculation On The Early Lanes

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

 

Some of my fellow Lane family researchers have posted data tracing our branch of the

family back to James Lane, who was born in the 1670’s.  However, to date, their data on

the earliest generations has been mostly speculation.  Neither they nor I have been able

to prove the data.

 

My cousin Gary Lane hired Mary Browning, a professional genealogist in North Carolina,

to do some research on the North Carolina Lanes, and the data she found matches portions

of the data presented by my fellow researchers.  However, the data she found did not take

the family back as far as the James Lane mentioned above, nor did she uncover any data

linking the Lanes of North Carolina to the Lanes of Orange County, Indiana.

 

Therefore, my data on my branch of the Lane family stops with William Lane, who was born

in the 1770’s and came to Orange County, Indiana, in the 1820’s.  My data on William and

his spouse and children, as well as speculation about him and how he got to Indiana, are

contained in Chapter Two. 

 

This chapter presents some of the data from my fellow researchers and the data reported

by Mary Browning, purely for informational purposes.  I will offer some observations on

this data:

 

* Generation 1 – This data came from postings on the LDS web site.  James would have

  been only 13 years old when son Thomas was born.  I have not found any proof that this

  data is accurate.

 

* Generation 2 – This data also came from postings on the LDS web site and is also

  unproven.

 

* Generation 3 - Mary Browning found most of this data in the Quaker monthly meeting

  records and in other places, as noted in the text.  Other data came from the LDS web

  site and from Donald Senn.  Overall, the data on this generation is trustworthy, but

  there is some speculation, as well.

 

* Generation 4 – Mary Browning also contributed some of this data, but a larger portion

  of it came from the LDS web site and Donald Senn.  This data has not been proven to

  the same degree as the preceding generation.  The family unit of William Lane, Jr.

  was provided by Donald Senn, and has not been proven.  Please note that the Mordecai

  Lane (#10) in this generation is not the one who moved to Indiana.  That one is

  supposedly #16. 

 

* Generation 5 – Most of this data was contributed by Donald Senn.  This generation

  supposedly provides the connection between the North Carolina Lanes and the Indiana

  Lanes, but the data is very speculative.  In fact, there is evidence that strongly

  suggests that the children attributed here to Jonathan Lane, Sr. actually belong to

  a different set of parents, as I will explain in Chapter Two.   

 

FIRST GENERATION

 

1.  James Lane was born about 1675 in Westmoreland County, VA.  He has Ancestral File

    number MWFR-VH.

 

    He died about 1699 in Westmoreland County, VA. 

 

    He was married to Martha Tidwell in Westmoreland County, VA.  Martha Tidwell was

    born about 1675 in Westmoreland County, VA.  She has Ancestral File number

    J4LP-G0.  She died Unknown.  James Lane and Martha Tidwell had the following

    children:

 

    2   i.    Thomas Lane (born on March 16, 1688).

 

SECOND GENERATION

 

2.  Thomas Lane was born on March 16, 1688 in Northumberland, VA.  He has Ancestral

    File number 14HL-1W3.

 

    He died in 1742 in Hanover, VA. 

 

    He was married to Patience Wood about 1706 in North Carolina.  Patience Wood was

    born about 1692 in North Carolina.  She has Ancestral File number 1L8V-5D1.  She

    died about 1742.  Thomas Lane and Patience Wood had the following children:

 

    3   i.    William Lane Sr.  (born about 1707).

 

THIRD GENERATION

 

3.  William Lane Sr. was born about 1707 in Virginia.  He has Ancestral File number

    FNVH-KH.  

 

    They were members of a Quaker monthly meeting in Caroline County, VA. When the family

    moved from Virginia to Guilford County, NC in 1765, they were received by New Garden

    Monthly Meeting of Friends.  Children were Sarah, William, Daniel, Jesse, Thomas,

    Marjory and Mordecai. Sarah was disowned by the meeting in 1765, William Sr. and son

    Daniel were disowned in 1769, and William Jr. was disowned in 1770.

 

    Anne and three children (probably Thomas, Marjory and Mordecai) returned to the South

    River Monthly Meeting in Virginia in 1771. William Sr. probably returned with them,

    but this isn't in the Quaker records since he had been disowned.  Anne returned to

    the New Garden Monthly Meeting in 1778.  If he was still living, William Sr. probably

    returned with her.

 

    He died Unknown.  Some sources list the date and place as 1771 in North Carolina. 

 

    He was married to Anne Crew (daughter of John Crew Jr. and Sarah Gattley) on November

    5, 1732 in Charles City, VA.  Their marriage date is also reported as either November

    5, 1733 in Friend's Meeting, Henrico Co., VA, or November 6, 1734 in Henrico Co., VA. 

    Anne Crew was born in 1710 in Charles City, VA.  Her birth year is also reported as

    either 1713 or 1714.  She has Ancestral File number FNVG-VW.  She died Unknown. 

    William Lane Sr. and Anne Crew had the following children:

 

    4   i.    Sarah S. Lane (born Unknown).

    5   ii.   William Lane Jr.  (born in 1745).

    6   iii.  Daniel Lane (born Unknown).  

    7   iv.   Jesse Lane (born before 1760).

    8   v.    Thomas Lane (born Unknown).

    9   vi.   Marjory Lane (born Unknown).

    10  vii.  Mordecai Lane (born about 1760).

 

FOURTH GENERATION

 

4.  Sarah S. Lane was born Unknown.  She came with her family from Virginia to Guilford

    County, NC in 1765 and was received by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends. 

    She died Unknown.  She was married to Benjamin Hancock on February 23, 1765 in

    Guilford County, NC.  She was disowned by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends

    in 1765 because of this marriage.  Benjamin Hancock was born about 1740.  He died in

    1815 in Wayne County, KY.

 

5.  William Lane (Lain) Jr. was born in 1745 in Virginia. 

 

    He died Unknown. 

 

    He came with his family from Virginia to Guilford County, NC in 1765 and was received

    by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends.  He was disowned by the meeting in 1770.

 

    There is a William Lane in the 1790 census of Guilford County, NC that could be this

    William Lane.  The family shows 1 male over 16, 5 males under 16, and 5 females,

    living next door to Daniel Lane (page 153).

 

    He was married to Patients Green on August 16, 1774 in Guilford County, NC.  Patients

    Green was born Unknown.   She died Unknown.  William Lane Jr. and Patients Green had

    the following children:

 

    11  i.    Jonathan Lane Sr. (born in 1775).

    12  ii.   Hannah Lane (born Unknown).

    13  iii.  William Lane III (born Unknown).

 

6.  Daniel Lane was born Unknown.  He came with his family from Virginia to Guilford

    County, NC in 1765 and was received by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends.

    He was disowned by the meeting, along with his father, in 1769.  There is a Daniel

    Lane in the 1790 census of Guilford County, NC that could be this Daniel Lane.  The

    family shows 1 male over 16, 6 males under 16 and 3 females, living next door to

    William Lane (page 153).  He died Unknown. 

 

7.  Jesse Lane was born before 1760 in Virginia.   He came with his family from Virginia

    to Guilford County, NC in 1765 and was received by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of

    Friends.  He was disowned by the meeting in 1774 for having associated with the

    Regulators in 1771.  The Regulators were a regional group protesting unfair fees

    charged by Orange County, NC court officers.  This culminated at the Battle of

    Alamance where they were defeated by British troops led by Royal Governor Tryon in

    1770 (this was before the Revolution).  The Quakers did not believe they should

    participate in any fighting, and disowned any members that did so.  He died Unknown. 

    He was married to Hannah Huddleston before June 1803.  Hannah Huddleston was born

    Unknown.  Hannah was disowned by the Deep River Monthly Meeting of Friends on June 6,

    1803 for marrying out of unity (Jesse had been disowned in 1774).  Since there is no

    marriage bond for Hannah and Jesse, the exact date of marriage is not known, but must

    have been shortly before June 1803.  Hannah condemned her misconduct in 1807, and in

    May she was returned to membership and got a certificate to the Miami, OH Monthly

    Meeting, so this is about when she and Jesse moved away from Guilford County, NC. 

    Miami Monthly Meeting would have been the nearest meeting to their new location, but

    would not necessarily have been very close.  She died Unknown.

    The following comment was submitted by Ed Kane, and is being offered here for consideration with Rob Lane's consent.   

    7a. The Jesse Lane who married Hannah Huddleston was likely the son of the Jesse Lane born before 1760. Hannah and Jesse show 

            up in Elk Monthly Meeting (Ohio) (Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Vol. 1-VI by William Wade Hinshaw, pgs. 848 and 849). 

            Listed with them are their 11 children.  Hannah died January 8, 1838, while Jesse died July 24, 1852.  Jesse is listed in the 1850 census 

            for Preble County Ohio as age 69 (born ~1881) along with two of his children Phebe and Levi. 

 

            Also listed in Hinshaw is a Julius. He is identified as son of Jesse dec and Anna.  He was evidently marrying a second time on April 20, 1843 

            (The Jesse listed in the records did not have a son Jesse)......Ed Kane

 

 

8.  Thomas Lane was born Unknown. 

 

    He came with his family from Virginia to Guilford County, NC in 1765 and was received

    by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends.  His parents returned to Virginia in

    1771 and he probably returned with them.

 

    He died Unknown. 

 

    He was married to Nancy Dabney.  Thomas Lane and Nancy Dabney had the following

    children:

 

    14  i.    Frances Lane (born on June 22, 1785).

    15  ii.   Mordecai Lane (born about 1787).

 

9.  Marjory Lane was born Unknown.  She came with her family from Virginia to Guilford

    County, NC in 1765 and was received by the New Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends. 

    Her parents returned to Virginia in 1771 and she probably returned with them.  She

    died Unknown.  

 

10. Mordecai Lane was born about 1760 in Henrico County, VA.  He has Ancestral File

    number 1L8V-5W4. 

 

    He died in 1805 in Guilford County, NC.  His wife Susanna was granted administration

    of his estate in the November term of the Guilford County Court.  He came with his

    family from Virginia to Guilford County, NC in 1765 and was received by the New

    Garden Monthly Meeting of Friends.  His parents returned to Virginia in 1771 and he

    probably returned with them.  He returned to Guilford County, NC in 1782.

 

    He was married to Susanna Ballard on February 24, 1796 in Guilford County, NC.  Their

    marriage bond was dated February 24, 1796 and was witnessed by William Handcock. 

    They were both disowned by the Quakers for being "too near kin".  Susanna Ballard

    was born about 1764 in North Carolina.   She died Unknown.  After Mordecai's death,

    Susanna applied for and received a North Carolina grant for land on waters of Deep

    River.  The grant was made to Susanna Lane had her children Nancy (who later married

    James Frazier), William and Pleasant Lane.

 

    The Mordecai land and the grant were all sold off by 1834.  Most likely Susanna and

    William moved, but Pleasant may have remained. Other Ballards went to the midwest,

    and that may have been why Susanna moved.

 

FIFTH GENERATION

 

11. Jonathan Lane Sr. was born in 1775 in Guilford County, NC. 

 

    There is a Jonathan Lane in the 1800 census of Guilford County, NC that could be

    this Jonathan Lane.  The family shows 1 male 16-26 and 1 female 16-26 (page 673).

    There is also a Jonathan Lane that could be the same one in the 1810 and 1820

    censuses.  He is also on the 1815 tax list.

 

    There are a number of Guilford County court cases against Jonathan from 1818 to 1821

    for unpaid debts.  The last one on November 1, 1821 mentions property supposed to

    belong to Jonathan Lane, which sounds like he was no longer around.  This would be

    consistent with the family's appearance in Indiana.

 

    He died Unknown.  

 

    He was married to Ann Philips on January 13, 1801 in Guilford County, NC.  Their

    marriage bond was secured by Thomas Ricks, William Lain, Jr., and witnessed by

    Patrick Healey.  Ann Philips was born Unknown.  She died Unknown.  Jonathan Lane Sr.

    and Ann Philips had the following children:

 

    16  i.    Mordeci Lane (born in 1803).

    17  ii.   Nancy Lane (born in 1803).

    18  iii.  Jonathan Lane (born on July 16, 1808).

    19  iv.   Daniel Lane (born in 1814).

    20  v.    Harmon Lane (born about 1814).

    21  vi.   Abigail Lane (born in 1803).

    22  vii.  Thomas Lane (born about 1820).

   

12. Hannah Lane was born Unknown.  She died Unknown.

   

13. William Lane III was born Unknown.  He died Unknown.

 

14. Frances Lane was born on June 22, 1785 in Guilford County, NC.  She died on October

    24, 1859 in Saline County, IL.  She was married to James M. Coffey.  James M. Coffey

    was born     on July 20, 1776 in Amherst County, VA.  He died on January 7, 1849 in

    Saline or Hamilton County, VA.

   

15. Mordecai Lane was born about 1787 in Guilford County, NC.  He died Unknown.

            Chapter Two: William Lane – Founder of the Indiana Lanes?

+ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - +

 

In my opinion, the family unit that Donald Senn attributes to Jonathan Lane, Sr. and Ann

Phillips in the preceding chapter actually belongs to William Lane and Nancy [Unknown]. 

Here is how I came to this conclusion:

 

* William Lane purchased a part of the estate of Jesse Hollowell in 1823.  This is the

  earliest record I have found of a Lane in Orange County, IN.

 

* There are no Lanes in the 1820 Orange County census.  William is the only Lane in the

  1830 Orange County census.  Nancy, Mordica, Jonathan, Daniel, and Harmon are the only

  Lanes in the 1840 Orange County census, Nancy is apparently a widow in the same

  township as Daniel and Harmon.  Nancy is in the household of Harmon Lane in the 1850

  Orange County census.  This census shows all of them as born in North Carolina.

 

* William’s estate was entered into Probate in 1839.

 

* Silas and Dovey Lane Luttrell's biography in History of Idaho, 1920, states that her

  father Jonathan Lane came to Indiana as a child with his parents. 

 

* Probate court records connect Jonathan, Daniel, and Harmon Lane.  Other court records

  connect Jonathan and Daniel.

 

* The lives of the children intermingle in ways that suggest that they are related. 

  Harmon and Daniel married sisters.  Nancy and Abigail married brothers.  Jonathan,

  Mordica and Abigail lived next door to each other at various times.  Jonathan and

  Mordica’s plots at Moore’s Ridge cemetery are diagonal from each other.  There are

  other records, such as land purchases, etc., that suggest a relationship.

 

It is known that the Lanes who arrived in Orange County were born in North Carolina, but

how they came to Indiana is not known.  Gary Lane was of the opinion that they came

across Kentucky, then up into Indiana (this was a common migration route at the time).

He found an entry for William Lane in the 1820 Washington County, IN, census that is a

general match for the Orange County William.  There is no William Lane in the 1830

Washington County, IN, census so it is very possible that the William Lane of the 1820

Washington County census is the same as the one in the 1830 census for Orange County, IN.

Steven Stewart also felt that these Williams were the same person.  There were also some

thoughts that the Lanes may have made a brief stop in Clark County, KY, but at the current

time, this is just speculation. 

 

Given that there are no Lanes in the 1820 Orange County census, William purchased land in

1823, and Jonathan came as a child (which would have to be in the early 1820’s), it seems

likely that the family arrived in Orange County between 1821 and 1823.  Evidence suggests

that they may have been Quakers, so they may have been influenced to come to Orange County

by the fact that there was a Quaker settlement in the Paoli area (founded by Jonathan

Lindley, who led a migration of Quakers from North Carolina in 1811).  William is the only

Lane in the 1830 Orange County census, so he was the head of the family.  Jonathan is the

right age to be the male 20-30 in the household.  William died in 1838 or 1839, and Nancy

appears (apparently a widow) in the 1840 census, so she must have been his wife.  All of

the other Lanes in 1840 are the right age to be children.  In 1850, Nancy is living in

Harmon’s household, so she is almost certainly his mother.  Jonathan and Daniel are

almost certainly siblings of Harmon based on probate records and a lawsuit filed in 1840.

The other evidence suggests that Mordica, Abigail, Nancy and Thomas are also siblings.

 

There is one fact that doesn't fit: In the 1880 census, Jonathan Lane reported that his

parents were born in PA.  However, the 1850 census reports a birth place of North Carolina

for all of the Lanes listed.  Given all of the other evidence, I suspect that this is an

error on the census.

 

Here is my data on William Lane:

 

1.  William Lane was born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.  He was

    probably born in North Carolina, based on the birth places of his wife and children. 

    Some records list his surname as Lain.

 

    William Lain is listed in Probate Order Book A, pages 131-132, as having purchased a

    part of the estate of Jesse Hollowell on April 21, 1823. 

 

    He appeared in the census in 1830 in Orange County, IN. 

 

    He probably died in 1838 or 1839.  Probate Order Book 4, p. 279 shows that his estate,

    first filed in 1839, was finally settled by second administrator Jeremiah Wilson on

    Aug. 25, 1852.  The estate had no assets. The name is listed as Wm. B. Lane.  Civil

    Order book 2, p. 157, March 13, 1840, shows Wilford Hoggate vs. Jonathan and Daniel

    Lane for debt, case dismissed by plaintiff (apparently they paid up).  Given the

    timing, this was likely connected to William’s estate.

 

    William Lane and Nancy [Unknown] were married Unknown.  Nancy [Unknown] was born about

    1780 in North Carolina.  She appeared in the census in 1840 in Paoli Township, Orange

    County, IN.  It lists 2 males 20-30 and 1 female 50-60.  She appeared in the census in

    1850 in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN, in the household of her son Harmon. 

    She died Unknown.  William Lane and Nancy [Unknown] had the following children:

 

    2   i.    Mordeci (Mordica) Lane (born in 1803).

    3   ii.   Nancy Lane (born on August 4, 1806).

    4   iii.  Jonathan Lane (born on July 16, 1808).

    5   iv.   Daniel Lane (born in 1814).

    6   v.    Harmon Lane (born about 1814).

    7   vi.   Abigail Lane (born about 1815).

    8   vii.  Thomas Lane (born about 1820).

 

    The Orange County marriage index lists the marriage of Harriet Lane to Eli McDonald

    in 1827.  Given that there appears to have been only one Lane family in Orange

    County during this time period, she was likely a child of William and Nancy. 

    However, I have not been able to find any data other than the marriage record, so I

    have not included her at this time.

 

    The lineage of each the above children is documented in the following chapters.

                    Chapter Three: Mordeci (Mordica) Lane

+ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - +

 

The evidence connecting Mordica to the family is circumstantial, but in my opinion, it

is convincing.  It is reasonably certain that all of the other Lanes that appear in the

1840 census are related, so it is likely that Mordica is also related.  Jonathan, Mordica

and Abigail lived next door to each other at various times.  Jonathan and Mordica’s plots

at Moore’s Ridge cemetery are diagonal from each other. 

 

There is a question as to whether or not Jonathan (#2) is a son of Mordica.  Jonathan was

supposedly born about 1826, but Mordica and Levina were not married until after July 1828,

which means he could not have been born before 1829, the year that James was born.  Also,

Jonathan does not show up in Indiana until quite a few years after the rest of the family

and he lived in Crawford County, just south of Orange County.  However, Mordica was 25

years old when he married Levina, so he could have been married previously, and Jonathan

could have come from this union.  It is also possible that Jonathan was related to the

family in some other manner than as Mordica's son.  Charles Elery Lane (descendant of

Jonathan) was with Emma Jane Lane Ellis (descendant of David Crockett Lane) in the 1900

census, which also suggests a family connection.

 

FIRST GENERATION

 

1.  Mordeci "Mordica" Lane was born in 1803 in Guilford County, NC.  He was a mason and

    farmer. 

 

    He immigrated between 1830 and 1832 to Orange County, IN, based on the birth places

    of his children and the fact that he doesn't appear in the 1830 census in Orange

    County, IN.  According to Goodspeed's History of Pike and Dubois Counties, Mordica

    and Mary moved from Orange County, IN to Dubois County, IN, in 1879. 

 

    He appeared in the census in 1840 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists

    2 males 5-10 [James and William?], 1 male 10-20 [Jonathan?], 1 male 30-40 [Mordeci],

    and 1 female 20-30 [Mary].  He appeared in the census in 1850 in Jackson Township,

    Orange County, IN.  It lists Mordica (50), Mary (41), James (21), William (18), Jesse

    (7), David (4) and Henry (1).  He appeared in the census in 1860 in Jackson Township,

    Orange County, IN.  It lists Mordica (55), Mary (45), David C. (14) and Hannah (11).

    Mordica and Jonathan Lane are next-door neighbors.  He appeared in the census in 1870

    in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Mordeci (67), Mary (61) and

    Elizabeth Allen (63) from TN. Could this be Mary's sister?  He appeared in the census

    in 1880 in Columbia Township, Dubois County, IN.  It lists Mordeci (72) and Mary (60)

    living with their son David. 

 

    He sold SE SW Sec 26 1N 2W on February 6, 1875 in Orange County, IN.  He sold his

    farm to his son, David. 

 

    He died on October 14, 1883 in Dubois County, IN.  He was buried at Moore's Ridge

    Cemetery in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.  His grave is diagonal to

    Jonathan Lane’s grave.

 

    Mordeci "Mordica" Lane and Levina Anderson were married in 1828 in North Carolina. 

    The marriage bond is dated July 4, 1828, the actual date of the marriage is

    uncertain.  Levina Anderson was born Unknown.  She died Unknown.  Mordeci "Mordica"

    Lane and Levina Anderson had the following children:

 

    2   i.    Jonathan Simpson Lane, born in 1826.

    3   ii.   James M. Lane, born in 1829.

    4   iii.  William Lane, born in 1832.

 

    Mordeci "Mordica" Lane and Mary A. Allen were married on February 27, 1840 in Orange

    County, IN (book C-2, page 99).  Mary A. Allen (daughter of Lewis Allen and Elizabeth

    neighbors, and a host of acquaintances knew him as Mike Ellis.  The community was

    has lost a good citizen.  The eternal values of life were exaulted by his living and

    words of the poet:

 

    I see from my house by the side of the road,

    By the side of the highway of life,

    The men who press with the ardor of hope,

    The men who are faint with the strife,

    But I turn not away from their smiles nor their tears

    Both parts of an infinite plan--

    Let me live in a house by the side of the road

    And be a friend to man."

     home Friday (Jan 3, 1930) after a very short illness,  Death was caused by uremia. 

     His death was shock to his many friends throughout the county and state.  Mr. Ballard

     had extensive interests in French Lick and West Baden and his passing will be mourned

     alike by his associates and friends.  Mr. Ballard attended the French Lick public

     schools, and at an early age embarked upon a business career.  By his ambition and

     to owning the Gorge Inn and Elite Cafe in French Lick, he was interested in the Grand

     Hotel at Mackinaw island, Mich., where he and his family spent the summer months.  Mr.

     Ballard was the son of James and Mary Elizabeth Ballard, one of a family of nine

     in West Baden, Indiana Friday, January 3, 1930, at the age of 46 years, 9 months and 1

     day. Seemingly in the prime of his manhood the dreaded ailment of uremia made it's

     appearance twenty-four hours before the final call, and without warning the Hand of

     Death has touched this home.  Joseph Leslie Ballard was one of the family of nine

     children born to James and Mary Elizabeth Ballard.  He is survived by his brothers,

     John Ballard of Asheville, North Carolina (who is here today), Charles Edward Ballard

     (at present in Europe), George Ballard of French Lick and his sister Rilla Ballard

     Ragsdale of California.  Four brothers preceded him in death, William and Scott in

     childhood ages, James Logan Ballard and Andrew Ballard in manhood estates.  Tis only

     three weeks since the last rites were given the remains of the brother Andrew Ballard

     from the same home.  Joseph Ballard attended schools in French Lick, but at an early age

     entered a business career.  A born leader of men, he has been the type of man whose

     opinions have had great weight in the many matters in which he has been interested, and

     his influence sought for many causes.  His zeal and ambition for his various enterprises

     were remarked upon by his friends and associates in business life.  On November 2, 1914

     he was united in marriage to Miss Olive Ellis, whose devotion to him and their children

     has been an inspiration to those that knew them best. A child, Joseph Leslie Jr. came

     June 24, 1916 to brighten their home for a few short months, but God's call came to him

     December 16th, 1917.  A daughter, Betty Lou, blessed them September 27, 1918 and the

     happiest moments of the life that passed, have been spent in the efforts to make his

     child happy, and the memories of the devoted wife and daughter will ever hold the

     kindness and love given them by their dear one whose voice is now stilled."

                                Chapter Four: Nancy Lane

+ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - +

 

Like many of her siblings, the evidence connecting Nancy to the family is circumstantial,

but in my opinion, it is convincing.  There appears to have been only one Lane family in

Orange County through the 1840 census, so it is likely that Nancy belongs to this family. 

She has the same given name as the woman thought to be her mother.  She was born in North

Carolina.  She and Abigail Lane married Wolfington brothers at a time when it was common

for siblings to marry siblings of another family.  She lived in the area of the county

where the other Lanes first appear to have lived when they came to Orange County.

This is my family line.  As such, it is probably the best documented section of this book.   

 

FIRST GENERATION

 

1.  Jonathan Lane was born on July 16, 1808 in North Carolina.  He was a farmer. 

 

    History of Idaho, 1920, contains a biography of Silas and Dovey Lane Luttrell.  It

    states that Dovey's father Jonathan Lane came to Indiana as a child, with his parents.

    Jonathan and some of his siblings start appearing in Indiana records as early as 1832. 

 

    He purchased NE 1/4 Sec. 30, 1N 1W on December 6, 1832 in Orange County, IN, from the

    U.S. Government.  He purchased NE 1/4 NW 1/4 Sec. 32 1N 1W on September 24, 1833 in

    Orange County, IN, from the U.S. Government.  He had other land transactions, but it

    is presumed that one of these two parcels constituted his "home place". 

 

    Jonathan and his son Martin served as sureters for Daniel Lane's bond when he served

    as guardian for Harmon Lane's minor children after his death.  See the death notes

    for Harmon Lane.

 

    He appeared in the census in 1840 in Greenfield Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists

    1 male 0-5 [Martin], 1 male 20-30 [Jonathan], 1 male 40-50 [?], 2 females 0-5 [Eliza

    and Mary] and 1 female 20-30 [Rebecca].  He appeared in the census in 1850 in Jackson

    Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Jonathan (37), Rebecca (36), Liza (15), Mary

    (14), Martin (13), Lucy (11), Nancy (9), Jordan (7), David (5) and William (3).  Based

    on the age, the David listed here must have been Dovey.  He appeared in the census in

    1860 in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Jonathan (52), Rebecca (47),

    Martin (22), Dovey (14), William (11), Jordan (7), Thomas (5) and Franklin (5).  James

    (7) is listed with next-door neighbors David and Elizabeth Livengood.  He appeared in

    the census in 1860 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Jonathan (52),

    Rebecca (44), Martin (21), Jordan (17), Dovey (14), William (12), Sherrod (9), Thomas

    (6) and Franklin (6), living next door to Mordica Lane.  They apparently moved from

    French Lick Township to Jackson Township in August.  Because the French Lick census

    was taken July 28 and the Jackson census was taken Sept. 1, they appeared in both. 

    He appeared in the census in 1870 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists

    Jonathan (63), Rebecca (57), Sherrod (19), Thomas (16), Franklin (16) and Nancy

    Burtt (8).  Neighbors include John and Abigail Lane Wolfington (sister), William

    and Nancy Lane Hobson (daughter), Jordan Lane (son), and Silas and Dovey Lane Luttrel

    l (daughter).  He appeared in the census in 1880 in Jackson Township, Orange County,

    IN.  It lists Jonathan (71), Rebecca (66) and grandson William (15), living next door

    to John and Abigail Lane Wolfington. 

 

    He died on October 31, 1883 in Orange County, IN.  The Paoli Republican (Nov 7, 1883)

    reported "Old Jonathan Lane met with painful death last week.  He and his wife were in

    the wagon returning home.  The double-trees got of his fix. He got out of the wagon to

    adjust them when one of the horses kicked him so terribly that he died in a few hours

    afterwards."  He was buried at Moore's Ridge Cemetery in French Lick Towhship, Orange

    County, IN.  His grave stone says "A loving husband, a father dear, a faithful friend,

    lies buried here". 

 

    Jonathan Lane and Rebecca Giles were married on February 1, 1832 in Orange County, IN

    (book C-2, page 41, which lists the date as February 2).  Thomas Combs' notes report

    that Jonathan and Rebecca had 13 children, but only 11 have been identified.  Rebecca

    Giles (daughter of Thomas Giles and Lucinia "Lucy" Hazelwood) was born on January 29,

    1813 in Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, KY.  She appeared in the census in 1840 in Orange

    County, IN.  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.

    She appeared in the census in 1860 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  She also

    appeared in French Lick township, see the census listings for Jonathan Lane for an

    explanation.  She appeared in the census in 1870 in Jackson Township, Orange County,

    IN.  She appeared in the census in 1880 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  She

    purchased S 1/2 SE Sec 23, and SW NE Sec 26, 1N 2W on September 16, 1870 in Orange

    County, IN.  She bought 40 acres from her son Thomas Lane for $400 (Book 33, P. 300).

    She sold pt. SE 1/3 Sec 23, 1N 2W on June 14, 1884 in Orange County, IN.  She sold 20

    acres to Thomas and Rachel Lane for $90 (Book 36, p. 56).  This was shortly after her

    husband Jonathan died and about the time she moved to Kansas.  She died on August 1,

    1887 in Norwood, Franklin County, KS.  John and Lucy Lane Leonard lived in Norwood, a

    small community north of Ottawa, Franklin County, KS, at the time of Rebecca's death

    (the only one of her children living in this county at the time), and Rebecca's probate

    records are filed in Franklin County, so Rebecca surely was living with them.  John

    Leonard was appointed administrator of the estate.  In the estate papers her heirs

    are listed as E. J. Leonard, M. V. Lane, Nancy Hobson, J. S. Lane, all of Quenemo,

    Osage County, KS; Lucy Leonard of Norwood, KS; Mrs. D. Luttrell of Spokane Falls,

    Wash.; Mary Marlette and Thomas Lane, Newton Stuart, IN; and Will Lane, Clinton M(?).

    Jordan and Franklin Lane had died by this time.  Her estate was $150.  The affidavit

    was filed Sep 23 1887, Case No. 3203.  John Leonard's name is misspelled Lenard in

    places but his signature is always Leonard.  She was buried in Prairie City Cemetery,

    Douglas County, KS.  The Prairie City cemetery is on the southwest edge of Baldwin

    City, Douglas County, KS.  Rebecca is buried next to Bailey Leonard, John Leonard's

    father and Lucy Lane Leonard's father-in-law, apparently in an unused burial plot. 

    Jonathan Lane and Rebecca Giles had the following children:

 

    2   i.    Eliza Jane Lane, born in March 1833.

    3   ii.   Mary Ann Lane, born on February 1, 1836.

    4   iii.  Martin Van Buren Lane, born on February 2, 1837.

    5   iv.   Lucy Lane, born on February 16, 1839.

    6   v.    Nancy Lane, born on December 30, 1841.

    7   vi.   Jordan Lane, born in 1843.

    8   vii.  Dovey Lane, born on March 1, 1846.

    9   viii. William F. Lane, born about 1847.

    10  ix.   James Sherrod Lane, born in May 1851.

    11  x.    Thomas Lane, born on May 10, 1854.

    12  xi.   Franklin Lane, born on May 10, 1854.

 

SECOND GENERATION

 

2.  Eliza Jane Lane was born in March 1833 in Orange County, IN, according to the 1900

    census.  Given that Mary Ann Lane was born February 1, 1835, this date is more

    reasonable than the 1835 date in family records. 

 

    She appeared in the census in 1840 in Orange County, IN.  She appeared in the

    census in 1850 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  She appeared in the census

    in 1860 in Ottawa Township, Franklin County, KS.  She appeared in the census in

    1870 in Franklin Township, Franklin County, KS.  She appeared in the census in

    1870 in Ottawa Township, Franklin County, KS (see the census notes for Calvin

    Leonard).  She appeared in the census in 1880 in Junction Township, Osage County,

    KS. 

 

    She died on March 24, 1912 in Homewood Township, Franklin County, KS.  In the 1910

    census Eliza and Albert were living in Homewood Township, Franklin County, KS. 

    They probably were still living there when she died.  She was buried in Oak Hill

    Cemetery, Osage County, KS.  She shares a head stone with Calvin Leonard, her first

    husband.  Her second husband Albert Alward appears to be buried with his first wife.

 

    Eliza Jane Lane and Calvin Leonard were married on December 15, 1853 in Orange County,

    IN (book C-3, page 514).  Calvin's first wife was Lucy Giles, sister of Eliza's mother

    Rebecca Giles Lane, making him Eliza's uncle.  Family told Gary Lane that Calvin and

    Eliza had no children of their own but raised several other children.  Calvin Leonard

    (son of James Leonard and Sarah Wolfington) was born on August 2, 1813 in North

    Carolina.  He purchased NE NW Sec. 31, 1N 1W on December 26, 1840 in Orange County,

    IN from his future father-in-law, Jonathan Lane.  He appeared in the census in 1860

    in Ottawa Township, Franklin County, KS.  It lists Calvin (47), Eliza (28), William

    (19) and J.A. (17).  He appeared in the census in 1870 in Franklin Township, Franklin

    County, KS.  It lists Calvin (56), Eliza (37), Calvin (21), Annie Morris (18) and

    Henry Massey (10) living 3 houses from John and Lucy Lane Leonard.  He appeared in

    the census in 1870 in Ottawa Township, Franklin County, KS.  It lists Calvin (55),

    Jane (45), Annie Leonard (13), Lee Wood (21) and Henry Massey (10).  They appear to

    have moved from Franklin Township to Ottawa Township in July, since they appear in

    both censuses.  The Franklin census was taken July 6 and the Ottawa census was taken

    July 20.  Gary Lane reported that they brought "Cousin Ann" with them from IN to KS

    and raised her.  Other household members are different between the two censuses, it

    is uncertain which information is correct.  He appeared in the census in 1880 in

    Junction Township, Osage County, KS.  It lists Calvin (66) Eliza (48), William Bennett

    (13) from Illinois, Eugene Payne (21) from Indiana, and William Baker (52) from Iowa.

    Franklin County deed records show Calvin is grantor on September 22, 1859, of Lots N2,

    Sec. 33 T15S R20, Book A, P. 244; and grantee on June 7, 1858, Lots 3 and 4, Sec. 33,

    T15, R20, Book A, p. 444.  This is about 2.5 miles east of Norwood in a rural area. 

    Apparently there was some effort to establish a town there.  This shows Calvin was in

    the area as early as 1858.  The History of the State of Kansas, 1883, for Franklin

    County, p. 602 states that in 1857 quite a large number had settled on West Branch and

    on the East Branch of Ottawa Creek; Esquire Merchant, Calvin and John Leonard, and

    John Heek.  He died on December 11, 1891 in Quenemo, Osage County, KS.  Calvin Leonard

    Estate, Probate Court, Osage County, KS, Case no. 2033. Property SW 1/4 Sec. 28 T 16,

    R 17 Junction Township.  Proceeds to son William Franklin Leonard and wife Eliza Jane.

    Also lots 2 and 4, Block 4, Cloud Addition, Quenemo, also NW 1/4 Sec. 28, T 16, R 17,

    D. K. Lord, Executor.  Will executed December 26, 1888, son used the name Frank Leonard

    and lived in Lebo, KS in 1891.  The Lyndon, KS Peoples Herald (Thursday, December 24,

    1891) reported that his first wife was Miss Lucy Jiles (Giles), married in 1840 in

    Orange County, IN.  They had two sons, one killed in the Civil War by bush-whackers and

    the other, Franklin Leonard, now living in Coffey County (this was his heir).  Calvin

    was born in North Carolina, moved to Indiana when 14 years old, moved to Kansas in 1859

    (Pioneer settlement book says 1857).  Married Eliza Jane Lane in 1853.  Lived in

    Franklin County until 1871 when he moved to Osage County northwest of Lyndon, until a

    few years ago when he moved into Lyndon.  However, Eliza was reported as living in

    Quenemo in Rebecca Lane's estate papers.  The Lyndon report is taken from the Quenemo

    Republican paper, thus northwest of Lyndon was actually Quenemo.  He was buried in Oak

    Hill Cemetery, Osage County, KS. 

 

    Eliza Jane Lane and Albert Augustus Alward were married on February 6, 1893 in Quenemo,

    Osage County, KS.  Albert Augustus Alward was born on November 29, 1830 in Fayette

    County, IN.  He appeared in the census in 1900 in Homewood Township, Franklin County,

    KS.  He died on October 5, 1912 in Quenemo, Osage County, KS.  He was buried in Oak

    Hill Cemetery, Osage County, KS.

 

3.  Mary Ann Lane was born on February 1, 1836 in Orange County, IN.  The 1900 census

    lists the year as 1835. 

 

    She appeared in the census in 1840 in Orange County, IN.  She appeared in the

    census in 1850 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  She appeared in the

    census in 1860 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  She appeared in the

    census in 1870 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  She appeared in the

    census in 1880 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Mary (44),

    Martin (20) and his wife Emma (22), Isaac (18), Melinda (17), Rebecca (10),

    Jonathan (9), Delilah Compton (22) from her first marriage and stepsons James

    (28) and George (25) Marlette.  She appeared in the census in 1900 in Greenfield

    Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Mary (65) living with her son Jonathan. 

    She appeared in the census in 1910 in Ottawa, Franklin County, KS.  It lists Mary

    (74) living with her brother Martin. 

 

    She purchased S 1/2 SW 1/4 Sec. 2, 1S 2W on October 13, 1889 in Orange County, IN,

    from Thomas Lane (book 39, page 507). 

 

    Cloe Anna Lane Beatty reported in a July 1965 letter to Gary Lane that Mary Marlette

    went from Orange Co., IN to Ottawa, KS to live with Martin in his last years.  Based

    on her obituary, this must have been about 1908. 

 

    She died on July 18, 1912 in Ottawa, Franklin County, KS.  The Ottawa, KS Weekly

    Herald for Thursday, July 20, 1912 reports that she died that morning, so the July

    18 date may be wrong.  It also reports that she died at Martin V. Lane's house at

    834 Burrough St., Ottawa, KS, she was survived by three children, Delilia Brent of

    Lebo, KS, Isaac Marlette of West Baden, IN, and Martin V. Marlette of Louisville,

    KY, and she came to Kansas 4 years ago to make her home with her brother.  She was

    buried in Lincoln Cemetery, Coffey County, KS.  probably because Valentine and

    Delilia Brent were living there at the time of her death.

    He appeared in the census in 1840 in Orange County, IN.  He appeared in the census

    in 1850 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  He appeared in the census in 1860

    in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  He also appeared in French Lick township,

    see the census listings for Jonathan Lane for an explanation.  He appeared in the

    census in 1880 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Martin (43), Martha

    (34), Jordan (15), Philip (14), Wilford (11), Perry (10), Melcena (8), Ollie (6),

    Lorena (4), Charles (1), his mother-in-law, Penelope Shively (71) and niece Hetty

    Pickett (6) (her age is incorrect).  He immigrated about 1885 to Kansas.  The

    earliest record of Martin in Kansas is the 1885 census.  He was living in Quenemo,

    age 47, single, occupation farmer.  Martin is listed as an heir of his mother,

    Rebecca Lane, in September 1887 and living in Quenemo at the time.  He appeared

    Baden; Melvena Livengood, 40, Perry, Ollie, Lulu, Charles and Leta, all of French

    Lick.  Total estate was $307 in personal property.  His obituary was in the Ottawa

    Herald on Tuesday, May 16, 1916.  His address is given as Hamblin St. between 8th

    and 9th, so he apparently moved from the Burroughs St. house where he lived for

    many years (and where sister Mary Ann Lane Marlette died).  It states that he had

    lived in Ottawa for about 15 years, so he must have moved from Quenemo to Ottawa

    about 1901.  He was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Osage County, KS, next to his sister

    Eliza and her first husband, Calvin Leonard.

 

 

    Martin Van Buren Lane and Martha Shively were married on February 13, 1862 in French

    sisters Martha and Elizabeth Shively.  Levi's sister (and Martin's cousin) Matilda

    Lane married Benjamin Chatham, a cousin of Elizabeth and Martha Shively.  They were

    divorced before 1885 in Orange County, IN.  According to information passed down in

    the Charles Lane family, Martin V. Lane deserted Martha and the family sometime before

    the turn of the century and "went West".  Charles said that this caused him to leave

    school in order to help his mother support the family.  Mona Robinson stated in her

    September 26, 1999 genealogy column Family Tree Leaves in the Bloomington Herald-Times

    that Indiana was reported to be a divorce mill in the middle 1800's because of easy

    divorce laws and short residency requirements.  The petitioner only had to place an

    ad in a newspaper where the action was filed; the spouse was not notified until after

    the divorce.  Martha Shively (daughter of Philip Shively and Penelope Busick) was born

    Martha (64) and 3 boarders, among them is Ethel Breeden (18).  She appeared in the

    census in 1920 in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists Martha (73) and

    3 boarders.  Martha sold to Napoleon Pierce on March 2, 1888, lots 1,2,8 in New

    Prospect, also undivided 2/3 of undivided 1/2 of SW SW Sec. 22, 2N 2W and E 1/2 of NW

    acres sold by Philip Shively for the site of New Prospect town and for meeting house

    and graveyard.  All of said land being subject to life estate of Penelope Shively,

    widow of Philip, Deceased.  A judgment was filed against Martha on January 17, 1891,

    Book 41, p. 326-327, for $110.26 by Daniel N. Long, prosecuting attorney, for part

    of S 1/2 of SW, Sec. 6, pt. SW of SE of Sec. 6 and NW NW, Sec. 7 2N 2W.  Napoleon

    Pierce paid $49.65 at sheriff's auction on September 14, 1889 and turned over the

    land to Martha.  She died on March 15, 1920 in French Lick, Orange County, IN (book

    FL-3, page 9).  The Lane family Bible also lists this date, but Edith Lane Bledsoe's

    letter reported it as May 5.  She was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in French Lick

    Township, Orange County, IN. Martin Van Buren Lane and Martha Shively had the

    Briner of French Lick, Grace Burch (deceased), Sampson Lane, French Lick, Chloe Ann

    Beaty, French Lick, Ruth Sturm (deceased), and Noble Lane of Topeka, Kansas.  With

    revered Mr. Lane as a father and often visited her mother and he with much pleasure.

    At an early age he became a member of the Old Liberty Christian Church, being

    he moved his membership to French Lick Christian Church where he was for a long time

    an elder. He enjoyed songs and was a singer himself.  He loved everything good about

    the church.  It would be hard to choose his favorite song.  He was an affectionate

    and loving father, very devoted and faithful, always cheerful and with all living a

    happy abundant life.  He was appreciative of the good things in life and always

    commented on them. He was of good countenance and happy life and well known and

    beloved by his family and a large circle of friends.  His enjoyment of life was in

    greeting friends, shaking hands and talking over the experiences of life with them.

    He was an inspiration to the young for he was good to know and shared his life with

    them. The community will have a vacancy of his life left by Uncle Tom as he was so

    familiarly known.  It is with a sense of sadness mingled with triumph that we write

    this life story which has been so well and nobly lived.  But as the Book of Truth

    records Blessed are they who die in the Lord, their works do follow them and they

    shall rest from their labors.  He is mourned by his six children, a wife, a daughter

    of his wife, 18 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren and a very great host of friends."

    earthward, and through the mist of our tears, we again look to Him in whose

    presence our loved and our lost, she whom we so much loved as our Mother and our

    friend, now abides.  In bringing this new vision to us, death has entered our home,

    Chicago, Illinois.  At an very early age she heeded the call of the Master and

    dedicated her life to the service of her Master, becoming a member of the Christian

    Church.  Henceforth her life was consecrated to her Master's praise and she ever

    sought and found refuge in His arms of boundless love and kindly grace.  And when

    came the hour of her transition from this world of pain and sorrow to that realm

    of eternal bliss, on Tuesday, April 9, 1929, she faltered not, but calmly lay down

    by life's pathway, and using the burdens of her Christian life for a pillow, she

    fell into that dreamless sleep that kisses down her eyelids still, to awaken only

    at the coming of the blessed resurrection angels call.  With the sorrowing husband,

    who must feel this loss most heavily and these sons and daughter, who had so loved

    Mother, there remains three brothers, Elsworth, Woody and John Wolfington, all of

    French Lick.  With you, these many friends here assembled mourn to bid adieu to this

    beloved friend, who you and we have so loved and have lost her companionship."  She

    ago, but was able to attend his duties as an officer of the bank.  He was stricken

    Although she was one of a quiet and retiring disposition her example of faithful

    service was influential in leading others to experience the pleasures received in

    on Calvary's cross will in God's due time cause all the dead again to live, for He

    'tasted death for every man to be testified in due time.'  He was united with the

    Christian Church at Antioch when 21 years of age, and has remained a member of that

    Orange County Probate Order Book 36, case 1773, page 528, April 15, 1932 reports

    that Walter Lane by Harry W. Carpenter, Attorney, filed a verified application for

    letter of administration issued to Charles C. Lane upon the estate and property of

    Wilford M. Lane.  Probable value of the estate estimated at personal property of

    $250 and real estate of $1000.  Charles C. Lane posted bond of $500.  Probate Order

    Book 37, page 45, September 17, 1932 lists three claims against the estate: Perry

    Lane for $24.50, West Baden Feed Exchange for $12.00, and Phillip S. Lane for

    $425.00.  Page 92, October 8, 1932 reports that Charles C. Lane resigned as

    administrator due to moving to Sidell, IL. Page 93, October 8, 1932 reports that

    Phillip S. Lane posted $500 bond as de bonis non administrator for the estate. 

    Philip sold the real estate to Harry W. Carpenter on April 17, 1933 for $467, on

    the same day petitioned the court to declare the estate insolvent (pages 231-232),

    and one week later on April 24, 1933, bought the property back from Harry W.

    Carpenter for $500.  On May 17, 1934, Philip sold the property to Chester and Ermel

    Lane for $1200.  Apparently, Philip could not sell the land to himself since he was

    the administrator, so he basically paid Harry W. Carpenter $33 to take the sale for

    him, and within one year's time made a profit of $700 on the property.

27. Oliver Lane was born on June 17, 1873 in Orange County, IN.  He was crippled in some

    fashion, perhaps from birth.  Edith Lane Bledsoe recalled that all of the younger

    children were "afraid of Uncle Oliver".  In his day, there was likely also the

    assumption that he was not mentally competent, though that may not have been the case

    at all.  Oliver lived for many years at the Orange County Home for the Indigent (the

    poor farm), and he was living there at the time of his death.  He appeared in the

    census in 1880 in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.  He appeared in the census

29. Charles Edward "Charley" Lane was born on September 16, 1878 in Orange County, IN. 

    Edith Lane Bledsoe's letter dated January 15, 1950 reported the year as 1880.  The

    Lane family Bible reports in two places that Leta Lane was born on January 29, 1881,

    which would rule out this birth date.  Also, the 1880 census lists him as 1 year old

    and the 1900 census reports his birth in September 1878.

    Chester (13), Clarence (11) and Edyth (5).  His occupation was barber at Hotel.  He

    Charles (49), Emma (44) and Edith (16) at 210 Maple Street in French Lick.  His

    occupation was grocery merchant. 

 

    James Edward Lane reported that Charles was a barber during the early years of his

    life.  Later, he operated a small grocery store across from the post office in French

    Lick, IN, until shortly after World War II.  The 1929 telephone directory lists his

    store at 205 College Street.  When coffee was a nickel a cup, with no free refills,

    Charley had the reputation of drinking his cup two-thirds to three-quarters of the

    way down, then asking for his coffee to be "warmed up".  Long after his death, there

    were people in southern Indiana, when they wanted their coffee warmed, would say

    "Charley Lane my coffee".

 

    The Springs Valley Herald (February 3, 1905) reported " All kinds of people come to

    French Lick - millionaires and misers, princes and paupers, sports with money to

    throw at the birds and parsimonious old codgers who are so stingy and close that

    Pluto with all its penetration can't get through them.  But the tightest, flintiest

    specimen of Shylock that ever struck this valley ambled into Charlie Lane's barber

    shop the other day for a shave.  He sported the somewhat generous name of Pat Scanlan,

    and hailed from Peoria, Ill.  Before taking the chair he inquired the price of a

    shave, and when told that it was 15 cents he threw up his hands in holy horror and

    started to leave for another shop; but when told that it was the same price concluded

    to remain.  When Charlie came to the finishing touches and said 'Wet or dry?' Pat

    said, 'a little oil, please.'  Charlie suggested a little tonic which Pat accepted,

    but when he went to settle and found that the tonic was 10 cents extra he raised a

    howl and swore he'd been buncoed.  Then with tears in his eyes, he declared he was a

    poor man with barely enough to get home on.  Thinking he might be a pauper, Charlie

    let him off.  He is reported to be worth $200,000, and probably is, for he certainly

    has never squandered his money.  He left for home feeling that French Lick was a skin

    game from first to last."

 

    He died on August 22, 1957 in French Lick, Orange County, IN.  He was buried at Ames

    Chapel Cemetery in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.

    on May 24, 1878 the first of nine children was born to Thomas and Rachel Hobson Lane

    years flew eight other children were born into their home.  On January 16, 1896 she

    one that we all should work at a lifetime that it might be a beautiful climax; one

    with confidence; that our life here will be the only memorial necessary to mark our

    passing.  Words seem so meaningless when trying to decide a rich, full life so nobly

    lived. she was ever busy with the comforts of her family.  The beautiful handwork

    created by her skillful and ever busy hands is symbolic of the loftiness of her

    character.  Since early girlhood days she has been a devoted member of her church,

    first South Liberty and since coming to French Lick she has made the First Christian

    Church her home, where she was ever ready and anxious to do all in her power for the

    betterment of God's cause and relieve the suffering of God's children.  The years are

    fleeting and a brief history of one's life so soon written on paper, but the influence

    of a life so nobly lived as this one will last throughout eternity.  The world has

    been a better place because she lived and worked and loved and now is at peace.  Her

    children, Mrs. Marie Barber of Indianapolis. Mrs. Zoe Kearby and Mrs. Geneva Clay of

    French Lick, Hugh of Azusa, California and Guy of Verdugo City, California, have so

    many precious memories to be cherished.  In later life she has had grandchildren upon

    3000 meals per day.  During the winter, he traveled to Clearwater, FL, where he served

    as head chef at the Fort Harrison Hotel and at a hotel in West Palm Beach as well.  His

    World War I draft registration card (dated June 5, 1917) describes him as tall height,

    medium build, blue eyes and red hair.  His occupation was cook at the French Lick

    Springs Hotel.  His residence was Walnut Street, French Lick.  He appeared in the census

    in 1900 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  He appeared in the census in 1910 in

    French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.  He appeared in the census in 1920 in French

    died on November 21, 1944 in Palm Beach, FL.  The Springs Valley Herald (November 23,

    1944) reported "Word was received here Tuesday evening of the sudden death of Volney

    Baxter of French Lick who passed away at Clearwater, Florida following a stroke early

    in the day.  His family had started to the bedside upon word of the stroke, but

    returned last night from Evansville when notified he had passed away.  Mr. Baxter had

    gone to Florida for the winter.  He has been a chef in leading resort hotels of the

    country for many years, but made his home in French Lick.  Funeral arrangements have

    not been completed at this time.  The body will arrive from Florida today.  He is

    survived by his wife and three daughters, Helen, Katheryn and Shirley, four brothers

    and two sisters."  The Springs Valley Herald (November 30, 1944) reported "Sunday

    afternoon the Christian church was packed to capacity with friends for the funeral of

    Volney Baxter, 56, who died at West Palm Beach, Florida, November 21.  The rites were

    conducted by Rev. C. W. Parks. Interment was in the Ames cemetery with Ritter & Son as

    funeral directors."  The same issue reported "William Volney Baxter was born October 6,

    1886 near French Lick, Indiana.  He was the son of William and Elizabeth Case Baxter. 

    He passed away in Palm Beach, Florida November 21, 1944 at the age of 56.  One sister,

    Grace Sanders, and one brother, Everett, preceded him in death.  He leaves four

    brothers and two sisters, Joe and Mrs. Mabel King of French Lick; Morton of Franklin,

    Ind.; Arthur of Palm Beach, Florida; Mrs. Pearle Eastman of Los Angeles, Calif. and

    Silver a prisoner of the Japanese in the Philippine Islands.  He was married to Mabel

    Seybold in 1913 and being a happy, cheerful father with a good mother, they made a

    happy home. To this home came Geraldine, Mrs. Helen Smiries, Kathleen and Shirley Ann.

    Geraldine died in early childhood.  He also leaves a little granddaughter, Angela,

    whom he loved dearly.  He became a member of the First Christian Church at French

    Lick during the pastorate of Rev. N. L. Collins.  His work was such that he could

    not attend church regularly, but he greatly appreciated the fellowship and inspiration

    of the good things in life and always commented on them.  He enjoyed songs and was a

    singer himself.  He was an affectionate and loving father, very devoted, well known

    and beloved by his family and a large circle of friends.  He began as a cook in the

    French Lick Spring Hotel and as the years went on he advanced until he was an expert

    in his profession of chef and served some of the largest hotels in a most efficient

    way.  His counsel and advice will be missed from the highest official to the lowest

    worker.  When a friend passes into the Great Beyond we suffer an irreplaceable loss.

    Something fine and precious goes out of our lives forever.  This is particularly the

    case when a man like Volney Baxter dies for he had a great genius for friendship, and

    today there is mourning in many households for the man who never forgot his friends,

    who rejoiced with them in their gladness and wept with them in their sorrows, who

    stood by them in every time of trouble and whose warm handclasp was that of a brother."

    He was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.  Mabel

    born December 22, 1897 and departed this life August 5, 1932, being 34 years, 7 months

    and 13 days of age.  Hattie had been an invalid since her infancy.  Her mother died

    when Hattie was three years of age.  Her father and relatives took care of her as best

    they could until she was twelve years old, when it was thought best to put her in an

    institution for treatment.  Consequently she was sent to Fort Wayne to a school for

    her class, where she remained for 22 years, until her death.  Under this method of

    treatment she made progress until about six months ago, when her general health began

    to fail, causing her sudden death on August 5th.  Hattie was of a loving disposition.

    She realized her serious condition.  She never forgot a person, though a stranger, who

    showed her a kindness.  She leaves to mourn her departure her father, one sister, Mrs.

    Mabel P. Baxter of Mackinaw Island, Mich., one brother, Floyd B. of Winchester, Ind.

    with him in Christian immersion and became a member of the Church of Christ at South

    Liberty.  He had no enemy.  Everybody was his friend.  Last February he went to

    County, IN.  She appeared in the census in 1930 in Chicago, Cook County, IL.  She

    died on February 8, 1953 in Chicago, Cook County, IL.  The headline of the Chicago

    Sun-Times (February 9, 1953) read "Find Woman, 41, Slain In Woods".  The accompanying

    article reported "An attractive 41-year-old woman who had just returned from a Florida

    vacation was found strangled Sunday in the Bemis Woods Forest Preserve near suburban

    Western Springs.  She was identified at the county morgue by her former husband, Banks

    Marlette, as Mrs. Anna Marlette Berndt.  Police were questioning her present husband,

    Waldemar Berndt, 37, a butcher in an I.G.A. market at 59th and Maplewood.  Berndt has

    been separated from his wife since November and lived with his mother, Mrs. Elsa

    Berndt, 5120 Talman.  Berndt was in a state of near-collapse, the police said.  Mrs.

    Berndt was strangled with her own flimsy red and white kerchief, knotted tightly about

    her neck.  A second dainty handkerchief was stuffed in her mouth.  Marlette, 45, of

    5004 Aberdeen, said his former wife motored to Florida three weeks ago with two women

    friends.  She was due to return here at 5 a.m. Sunday by plane.  The identification

    was made after the victim's half-burned suitcase was found by Joseph White, 5938 S.

    Maple wood, in a wooded area near the Des Plaines River.  White said he was walking

    near the river about three-fourths of a mile north of Archer near Western Springs

    when he found a cosmetic case.  Nearby were a pair of glasses, make-up articles and

    bits of partly burned clothing.  White said he began searching the area and then

    found the suitcase about 300 feet from the river.  It was burned on one end and about

    the handle.  Severed letters were found in the suitcase and were being examined by

    police.  The police said Berndt told them his wife had phoned from Florida, asking

    him to meet her plane at 5:39 a.m. Sunday.  Berndt told the police he set his alarm,

    perparatory to meeting the plane, but then decided not to get up because he had been

    up late Saturday night.  He added he was afraid Marlette might also be at the airport

    and 'there might be trouble'.  Marlette told authorities that he an Mrs. Berndt were

    divorced three years ago.  Police found $120 in crisp new bills in her purse.  Chief

    Daniel Conway of the Forest Preserve Rangers said she apparently had been killed early

    Sunday in a car.  The body then was dumped, he said, in the spot where it was found.

    The death scene is about eight miles east of the Chicago city limits at 3500 south.

    Police were searching for witnesses who might have seen Mrs. Berndt leave the plane

    on which she was due to arrive from her vacation.  Dr. Jerome Kearns, chief coroner's

    physician, said there was no evidence of rape.  The body was found by Raymond Scantlen,

    29, who lives in a trailer camp near Elmhurst.  Scantlen told police he had driven to

    the Forest Preserve and saw the body while walking on a footpath.  The discovery was

    made at 10:20 a.m.  The coroner's office estimated that Mrs. Berndt had been dead four

    or five hours.  The victim was wearing a red cloth coat with mouton fur collar and

    cuffs, a gray suit with horizontal pin stripes, nylon stockings, red alligator high-

    heeled shoes, a white blouse, girdle and pink slip.  None of the clothing was in

    disarray.  A pearl earring was on her right ear.  A matching earring was found severa

    feet west of the path.  Chief Conway theorized that Mrs. Berndt had been riding in a

    car with a man - that they quarreled - and that the argument led to a blow on her

    cheek.  Mrs. Berndt's face was discolored on the cheek.  Conway said that the man

    then apparently seized the handkerchief from Mrs. Berndt and used it to kill her. 

    Forest Preserve Ranges found a scrap of paper near the body which bore the name of

    a Hinsdale man.  The clue proved worthless, however, when they discovered the man

    had lost the paper while practicing woodlore in the area several days ago with his

    Boy Scout son.  Police said that the soles of Mrs. Berndt's shoes were dry when she

    was found on the slushy ground, indicating she had been carried there.  Marlette

    said that his former wife lived at 5835 S. Mozart, where she operated a beauty shop.

    He added that he and his ex-wife have a son, Donald, 21, a machinist, and a 9-year-

    old daughter, Linda.  Donald's wife, Emily, 19, of 5004 S. Aberdeen, said Mrs. Bendt

    last visited their home Jan. 17, the day after Donald's 21st birthday.  At that time,

    Emily said, Mrs. Berndt said she was separated from her husband and that she 'was

    through with men.'  'I don't intend to date any men and never plan to get married

    again,' the daughter-in-law quoted Mrs. Berndt as saying."  Her death notice in the

    Chicago Daily Tribune (February 11, 1953) reported "Ann Marlette Berndt, 5835 S.

    Mozart, wife of Walter Berndt, mother of Donald and Linda Marlette, daughter of Alta

    and John Parks of French Lick, Ind., sister of Mrs. Velva Lynn.  At chapel, 316 W.

    63d Street at Harvard Avenue, until 10 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11.  Services and

     "When the last weaver is finished, And the shuttle ceases to fly, Then God will

     unroll the pattern, And explain the reason why.  So we must go on, not knowing, I

     would not if I might, I'd rather walk in the dark with God, Than go alone in the

     light.  In this we know we are not wrong, Faith points the way where she has gone.

     We would not question God's wisdom in taking Zoe so suddenly away from us while

     attending church last Sunday evening, April 7, 1957. We believe her death is not

     extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come. 

     Her life began on March 15, 1898, when she came into the home of Lucy Jane and

     Alexander Rogers.  Her entire life has been spent in this community.  She has

     attended church here at South Liberty all of her 59 years.  In early life she

     became a member of the Church, had has been an ardent worker and a staunch believer.

     She established her own home when she married Roscoe Kearby on April 29, 1917. 

     Two daughters came to bless this home.  Zoe believed with the psalmist that God

     has ordered that men being in need of each other, should love one another, and

     share each other's burdens, for, on man liveth to himself, alone.  She had many

     friends and knew they were worth more than silver and gold.  Zoe loved life.  She

     loved the springtime.  She loved people.  She, in her busy life of ministering to

     the welfare of her loved ones, took time for what some might consider the little

     things.  She knew the favorite pie of each and made it for them.  She took time to

     go to the brook with her grandchildren to play.  She took time to do so many things

     for so many people, even though she had not been well of years. Perhaps this is shy

     she has been spared beyond the years he doctors though her heart could last.  Besides

     her husband she leaves her two daughters, Lucille and Mary Zoe, two sons-in-law,

     Harold Cox and Alva Taylor, whom she loved as her sons, three granddaughters, Mrs.

     Donald Bailey of Hawaii, Mary Lou Cox, Kay Lynn Taylor, and a new grandson Timothy

     Guy Taylor; two brothers, Hugh of Azusa, Calif., and Guy of Glendale, Calif.; two

     sisters Mrs. Marie Barber of Indianapolis and Mrs. Geneva Clay.  She also leaves
