I hope this makes some sense.
I'm a direct descendant of the "Scotch-Irish" Daniel Lane who was married to Margaret Turner. I've been doing alot of research on this line of Lane's from Hanover County, Va. and I have come to the conclusion that their were 2 different Daniel Lane's in that area.
The first Daniel Lane from my line, was father of James, Garland, Turner, Gilman, and I believe Richard as well. They lived in Hanover County, Va, I found a period article about one of Richard Lane's grandsons that states "On the paternal side Dr. (Albert) Lane comes of protestant scotch-irish stock." I also found a reference that Fountain H. Lane (father of the above Albert) had a brother Daniel, who moved to Kentucky. So if thats the case Richard Lane had a daughter named Margaret and a son named Daniel. I can send you the links.
The second Daniel Lane, I believe was the son of William Lane b.1705 who married Anne Crews and was an ardent quaker. This William Lane was a brother of Thomas Lane Jr. b.1715 who married Ann Garrett. There are many land deeds in the upper Louisa/Spotsylvania associated with William Lane, Edward Lane, Dumas Lane, and Thomas Lane Jr.
The Daniel Lane that witnessed a deed with Thomas Jr. in 1767 I believe is this Daniel, son of William. not my "Scotch-Irish" Daniel. He is also the same Daniel I believe was married to "Ann" who bought land in the same area as Thomas, Edward, and Dumas. This Daniel and his family was in Guilford County NC by 1790 with his father William, and other brothers.
I have submitted a DNA sample at Family Tree DNA which certainly shows that my line is of Scotch-Irish ancestory. A descendant of Dumas Lane from Thomas Lane's line also submitted a sample and there is no relation at all.
I have alot more info I'd love to share with you.
