Classification: Query
It appears that my sister-in-law, Pat Lane Lamb, is a descendant of Middleton and Nancy Lane's youngest child, William M. Lane. He ended up in Arkansas. I've pasted some useful information below.

I had deduced that the older Middleton was either the father or the uncle of the younger Middleton. According to your info he was an uncle. Both moved from Tennessee to Polk County, Missouri.

I kept working my way back and the oldest Lane I found was a John Lane and a Rebecca Lane. Then there was Samuel and Middleton. I thought perhaps Samuel was the father of the younger Middleton. Is the Tandy Lane you mention as the father of the younger Middleton also the John T. Lane?

Tell me more about this line if you will.

Who was the 104 year-old Rebecca Lane in the 1850 census below? And the old John Lane?

Only one Lane family in Tennessee in the 1810 census.

There was one Samuel Lane in Jackson.

State: Missouri
Shows One Male between 20 and 30, so this is the younger Middleton Lane, father of William M. Lane.
Shows two sons under the age of 5.
Shows one female between 30 and 40, which means that Nancy was older than Middleton

This is the older Middleton Lane who moved to Polk, Mo. by the 1850 census.

He is between 40 and 50 in the 1840 census.
He has four sons still at home.
One is between 20 and 30.
One is between 10 and 15.
Two are between 5 and 10.
Two are under the age of 5.
The oldest female is between 30 and 40.
There is one daughter between 15 and 20.

In 1840 there are two Middleton Lanes in Pike County, Mississippi -- probably related somehow.

Also in 1840 Bradly, Tenn. are other Lanes.
Samuel, Daniel, and Middleton Lane are in the same age groups and were probably brothers or cousins. The other Lanes are sons of these men.
