I appreciate all the replys to my posting. In the info I have found, I have not found a Nancy Jane as daughter to Randolph & Dorcas Mills Laney. But I know I don't have everything complete on their children. I have: Robert Thomas Laney (or Thomas Christopher Mills), Squire Randolph Laney, General Richard Laney, Gideon Laney, Martha Laney, Dorcas Laney and Thaddius Clingman Laney. The last son, Thaddius C. Laney is my husbands line. TC Laney married Mollie Donaldson (dau of Hattie Stansberry & William Donaldson. Their children were: Horace Laney, William Thaddius Laney, Mattie Laney, Dorcas Ann Laney, Winfield Scott Laney Sr (my husbands grandfather), Frank Laney and Floyd Laney. I think I have the picture someone mentioned of TC Laney Family.
I am new to this, so I need to ask, what are the rules about posting info on people still living. Are we only supposed to post info on persons deceased? I will be glad to email anyone the more specific info (like dates) I have when I have time.
How did someone connect Randolph Laney and Dorcas Ann Mills to parents? What are the sources? Personal knowledge or records? I guess I tend not to trust what I find until I can research it personally. I have seen too much posted on sites that I KNOW is not correct.
I read the accounts of the bushwackers. My husband had heard that some of the older Laney's were "rough". And that some of them had to change their last name from Laney. I know about the Mills', but has anyone heard of changing the name to "Lanning"?
I will get back on as soon as I can. I don't get that much time on the internet.
