Hello all. I am trying to determine the parentage of John Lane, originally of Va (according to Census data) and later of Bedford and Rutherford Counties Tn.
Their son James Cathey Lane married Frances Mirande Wynn. They may also have had another son Isham.
Our family tradition is that a nmuber of our Lane ancestors participated in the Battle of King's Mountain and were also involved in the establishment of Shelbyville Tn. John Meakin Lane, son of Joel Lane, did both of these. However I think that there must have been two John Lanes in Bedford County at the same time. It does not however look likely that our John Lane was descended from Tidence Lane and the Maryland line, but who knows..
Does anybody have any more information? Thank you!
