Harry Lane born in East Prairie, mo

Submitter: Theresa
DateMarch 9, 2004 I'm trying to find my GGgrandfather. With help of another person she sent me this info below. If you have any info or connect to this LANE line please contact me. My GGgrandfather shows on the 1900 census in Cowan Township, Wayne Co,MO. married to Elzora PUGH. Thank You, Theresa ( please read below ) Theresa, Here's a theory for you. I started by checking the 1870 census index for William Lane. Ancestry.com has an excellent index that includes every person living, their age and where they were born. I only found one William Lane who was 12 years old and born in IL. 1870/KY/Fulton/Hickman/p.258 Lane, JJ 56 home carpenter TN Lane, Seantha 48 keeps house TN Lane, Charles 17 at school IL Lane, Richard L 15 at school IL Lane, William T 12 at school IL Lane, Robert F 10 at school IL I went back to IL in 1860 and found the following family: 1860/IL/Schutler/Littleton/p.161 Lane, James J. 46 Merchant IL

Lane, Seantha 39 TN   or Seanath
Lane, James H 15 TN
Lane, Mary A 9 IL
Lane, Charles H 7 IL
Lane, Richard D 5 IL
Lane, William T 2 IL
At first I discounted this family as being the right one because the parents names didn't match but I spent a lot more time trying to find another William and couldn't find one that came close. Then I started searching the 1880 census in MO and began by checking the counties you mentioned - Wayne, Scott and Mississippi. Look what I found in Mississippi County 1880/MO/Mississippi/Long Prairie/p.363a Lane, JJ 65 married farming TN VA VA Lane, Mary 53 married keeping house TN Lane, Charlie 27 single IL Lane, Frank 19 single IL This fits the family from 1860 and 1870. Charles matches and Frank is likely Robert F. Mary looks to me like a second wife. OK, so where's William? There is a William in Long Prairie too: 1880/MO/Mississippi/Long Prarie/p.359a Lane, William T. 22 farming IL TN TN Lane, Gabrilla wife 17 MO TN TN Is this the same guy? I went forward to the 1900 census and found that your William was listed like this: Lane, William H.T. I think it is quite possible that this is your man, but I can't be sure. William's obit and his census records all indicate he had only been married twice, yet he shows up married in 1880. I could not find another good match for him in 1880 in MO, so perhaps he was married for a short time and something happened. It would explain why he wasn't married to Alzora until the age of 33. I found him in the 1920 census and in 1930 married to Rose, both times living in Wayne county and in each census he is called Henry. I suspect it was a nickname. As for Henry's father, he certainly could have been James John Lane, went by J.J. or John. I don't know what to say about his wife - Seantha is an unusual name and one you would think people would remember. BTW, when you mentioned Perryjim my first thought was her name was probably Perryman. There are plenty of those around.

Lankheit, Norbert 

My G/G/G/Grandfather Rudolph Lankheit and family was brought over from Prussia in 1848 by Johann "Heinrich" Lankheit (his son)my G/G Grandfather whom arrived in Mo. in 1847 and settled a place called Texas Bend. He married in Mo. (a women from Cincy where he traveled to get supplies) and moved to Northern Ky. (where I am from ) in 1868 because the land he bought from the Gov. was swampy and had misquito`s which carried malaria killing 4 of the smaller children they had. When in No. Ky. he settled in Bromley and the fieldstone house is still standing (registered in the state Historical Society). Any information from the Lankheit name would be greatly appreciated.
