Hi! I am trying to establish a line of descendancy so I may join the DAR. I am in NH, and need to know if you have any record of the following:

John Lanning died 8/10/1839
his wife Sarah Whitaker died 5/26/1848

Amos Lanning b. 11/18/1786
Mary Gallimore b. 12/1/1799

Elbert Lorenzo Lanning b.1825
his wife Mary- b.1826

John Lorenzo Lanning b. 1857 d.7/17/1905
his wife Elizabeth Parker married 1881

Charles Griffith Lanning b.6/4/1878 d. 6/30/1957
his wife Altunie(?) Brookshire b. 6/16/1879 d. 7/8/1927 married in Asheville 11/10/1895 by a Rev. Parkham

Many were buried in "Old Cane Creek" Cemetary, but I cannot locate this place. I've tried calling the Cane Creek Baptist Church 628-3396 with no answer. All were residents of (then Rowan) Buncombe Co.

THANKS! Hope you can help!

Nancy,

The new area code is (828)for the Asheville, N.C. area, so that's one answer to your problem.

Also, your best bet is to find the 3 volumes of cemetery records: dates & names for Buncombe County, N.C. They are very inclusive.

Also, Cane Creek is just south of Asheville, located in the Fairview area.

My gg-uncle, Henry Jenkins m Naomi Lanning abt. 1850.

Re: Joseph Lanning of Buncombe County, we may be distantly related. However, my branch went from NC to Indiana and then ends so far in Iowa. Some connections are not entirely certain, so I am keeping the Penn. and Ohio branches in mind.

All New World Lannings are descendants of John Laning (?) and his wife Hannah, who came here from England in the late 1600's. They are buried in either Queens, NY or Long Island, NY. Joseph is the 1st native born on our tree. I still have a big gap in re lbert Lorenzo Lanning. I think he was probably born & buried in Buncombe Cty, but I can't find any record. He was the son of Amos, and he married a Mary yelton, of whom I have no info either.

John Lanning's wife was Sarah Whitaker, whose parents Joshua Sr. and Mary Reed are also buried in the Cane Creek Cemetery. The cemetery is near the South end of Fairview, Buncombe county on Old Cemetery Road, East of the highway. The cemetery is full of Lannings and Whitakers. John has a DAR plaque on his headstone.

I have a Sarah Whitaker in my tree who is married to an Andrew Grant. Sarah was born on June 12,1812 in Fairview,NC I have her parents listed as Joshua Whitaker and Nancy Childers. I show that Sarah was also buried with Andrew Grant in Cane Creek Cemetery. Is she related to the Sara Lanning you have listed? I am also searching for Andrew Grants parents if anyone has any information. Any help you could give me would be truly appreciated!! Thanks
