E-mail –

shirleyk@networksplus.net

Re: Sarah [Margaret] LANE

b c1849 and Mary E. LANE b

c1852, both born Washington

Co. TN.

I am looking for information

on or descendants of one of

both women, daughters of Hugh

J. LANE [b c1824 TN] and

Levisa NAVE [b1822 TN] of

Washington Co. TN. According

to the obituary of my greate

grandfather [William H. LANE

1855-1924], he {Wm. H. had a

sister who resided in Tulia,

Texas at the time of his

death in 1924.

1. Sarah [Margaret] LANE b

c1849 Washington Co. TN; or

2. Mary E. LANE b c1852

Washington Co. TN.

I do not know the name of the

husband of either of the two

women. However, according to

the 1880 census of Washington

Co. TN, both women were

apparently still unmarried in

1880 and residing with their

widowed mother, Levisa (NAVE)

LANE RHINEHART. Some of the

brothers of Sarah Margaret

LANE and Mary E. LANE moved

from Tennessee to Benton Co.

AR about 1881 and at least

one of the brothers on to

Washington Co. AR by the

1890s.

Below is a query that

summarizes what I know about

the family and what I seek.

 

Proof and documentation are

very important to me [to all

of us, I believe]. If you

are able to provide any

information regarding the

families in question, will

you please clearly identify

in detail the sources of that

information? [I’m not saying

that it has to be a

recognized source or even a

good source. I just want to

know where the information

came from so I can judge for

myself what can be accepted

and what needs to be explored

further. Also, if you have

names and addresses of others

whom you feel might be

knowledgeable about any of

the persons/families

identified, I would certainly

like to have them. Thanks.

LANE NAVE MURRAY JACKSON

ONNTO/ORTTO SIMPSON MAGILL

Seek proof of the parents of

my ancestors Hugh J. LANE (b

c1823 TN, m1842 Washington

Co. TN, d1870 same place) and

his wife Levisa C. NAVE (b

c1822 TN, d after 1880,

buried Benton Co. AR). Need

confirmation that Levisa was

a dau of Henry NAVE (b c1788,

resided Carter and Washington

Co. TN, a son of Teter NAVE.

Per census and other records,

the children of Hugh J. and

Levisa were: James M. b

c1843, Murray B. (b1844, m

Hannah JACKSON), John b

c1846, Sarah M. b c1849, Mary

E. b c1852, William Henry (my

gr grandfather, b1855, d1924

Adair Co. OK, m1874

Washington Co. TN to Nancy

Jane MURRAY), and David A. b

c1858. Several of the family

went to Benton Co. AR c1880.

In the 1850 census of

Washington Co. TN, Hugh J

LANE is “next door” to a John

H. LANE (b 1817, d1874, m1

Alvira ONNTO/ORTTO, m2

Margaret SIMPSON). This John

H. LANE has been identified

as a son of Thomas LANE of

Greene Co. TN (b1785 MD, m1

Elizabeth ? , m2 Hetty

MAGILL). The fairly well

documented list of the

children of Thomas (b1785)

does not include a “Hugh.”

How is my Hugh J. LANE

related to John H. LANE b1817?

Deed records of Monroe Co. TN

suggest that Hugh J. was

related to the LANEs of that

county: Monroe Co. TN Deed

Book N&K (258)–“26 Dec 1844

Washington Co. TN, John W.

and Hugh ? LANE to John

McCROSKEY; Bill of sale for

slaves.” Deed Book M (15)–6

Aug 1833 Street LANE to John

McCROSKEY, his claim as

legatee and heir of James

LANE dec’d.” Deed Book M

(123) “13 Dec 1833 Lindsey

LAYNE of Monroe Co. to John

McCROSKEY of same; his one-

fourteenth part of the slaves

as legatee and heir of James

LANE dec’d.” Per census

records, John W. LANE resided

Washington Co. TN 1850 and

was born c1821; Street and

Lindsay of Monroe Co. both

born N.C., Street c1803 and

Lindsay c1811. Was my Hugh

J. LANE (b c1823) a son or

perhaps a grandson of James

LANE of Monroe Co. TN??
