Seek proof of the parents of my ancestors Hugh J. LANE (b c1823 TN, m1842 Washington Co. TN, d1870 same place) and his wife Levisa C. NAVE (b c1822 TN, d after 1880, buried Benton Co. AR).Need confirmation that Levisa was a dau of Henry NAVE (b c1788, resided Carter and Washington Co. TN, a son of Teter NAVE.Per census and other records, the children of Hugh J. and Levisa were:James M. b c1843, Murray B. (b1844, m Hannah JACKSON), John b c1846, Sarah M. b c1849, Mary E. b c1852, William Henry (my gr grandfather, b1855, d1924 Adair Co. OK, m1874 Washington Co. TN to Nancy Jane MURRAY), and David A. b c1858.Several of the family went to Benton Co. AR c1880.My William H. and Nancy J.(MURRAY) LANE resided in Washington Co. Arkansas 1880s-c1910.
In the 1850 census of Washington Co. TN, Hugh J LANE is "next door" to a John H. LANE (b 1817, d1874, m1 Alvira ONNTO/ORTTO, m2 Margaret SIMPSON).This John H. LANE has been identified as a son of Thomas LANE of Greene Co. TN (b1785 MD, m1 Elizabeth?, m2 Hetty MAGILL).The fairly well documented list of the children of Thomas (b1785) does not include a "Hugh."How is my Hugh J. LANE related to John H. LANE b1817?
Deed records of Monroe Co. TN suggest that Hugh J. was related to the LANEs of that county: Monroe Co. TN Deed Book N&K (258)--"26 Dec 1844 Washington Co. TN, John W. and Hugh?LANE to John McCROSKEY; Bill of sale for slaves."Deed Book M (15)--6 Aug 1833 Street LANE to John McCROSKEY, his claim as legatee and heir of James LANE dec'd."Deed Book M (123) "13 Dec 1833 Lindsey LAYNE of Monroe Co. to John McCROSKEY of same; his one-fourteenth part of the slaves as legatee and heir of James LANE dec'd."Per census records, John W. LANE resided Washington Co. TN 1850 and was born c1821; Street and Lindsay of Monroe Co. both born N.C., Street c1803 and Lindsay c1811.Was my Hugh J. LANE (b c1823) a son or perhaps a grandson of James LANE of Monroe Co. TN??
