I don't have much more info to share, but..
(1)GFather was Phinias (Finn) Lane as far as I can determine he lived his whole life (abt 92 years) in San Augustine, Texas. He and his wife Margaret (Maggie) raised about 11 children there. My Dad was Henry (1910). I remember an uncle, Leroy.
I have/had a brother and sister (previous
marriage) that I know little about. He was James Henry, Port Aurthur, Texas. He also had a large family (12 I think). I understand that some of them now live in the Los Angeles area.
My GFather worked a small farm between San Augustine and Milam. I remember an Uncle who raised watermelons near Milam. I 'd be interested in attending a family reunion, if they are still held. I went to one that I can recall. Early June I think.
Well that about does it on this end. Did I mention that we are AfricanAmerican? Hope some of this rings a bell...
