Van Lane of Mills county 1890's

I saw an old photo of The Texas Rangers in Mills from 1897.
They had just broken up a ring of vigilantes at buzzards roost. It had 9 Rangers in it along with Bat Masterson. One of the Rangers was a local by the name of Van Lane. I am wondering if it is possible that this could be my great grandfather. We have no pictures to compare it to. Can anyone shed light on this. He lived near Lometa from 1860 to 1890, then moved to Mills area in the early 1890's. He lived there about 20 years.
