All New World Lannings are descendants of John Laning (?) and his wife Hannah, who came here from England in the late 1600's. They are buried in either Queens, NY or Long Island, NY. Joseph is the 1st native born on our tree. I still have a big gap in re lbert Lorenzo Lanning. I think he was probably born & buried in Buncombe Cty, but I can't find any record. He was the son of Amos, and he married a Mary yelton, of whom I have no info either.
