Have hit serious brick wall in researching McLane ancestry
G G grandfather was William Robards McLane who was born in Trigg County 07/08/1832. His parents were Samuel R McLain (various spellings) and Martha Sholar. Samuel and Martha were both born and married in Trigg County or its precursor Christian County. Their marriage was on 10/18/1831. Martha died soon after William R was born. Samuel R. remarried to Nancy Jane Lacy.

By 1850 this family moved to Henry County Tennessee. According to the 1850 census:

Samuel R- age 36- (abt. 1814)
Nancy J- age 30- (abt. 1820)
Wm R - age 16- (born 07/08/1832)
Martha- age 13- (abt. 1837)
Thomas- age 6- (abt. 1844)
Henry H- age 3- (abt. 1847)

According to the Goodspeeds Biographies of NW Arkansas (Franklin Co. pg. 1256 written in 1889)- Martha B became Mrs. Adkins of Henry County, TN. Thomas J also of Henry County, TN. Henry H is a Kansas farmer.

Any information around ancestry of Samuel R. McLain and Martha Sholar or any other part of this family would be much appreciated.
