Drake, I don't have much on William Henry Lane, except he was born about 1800-04, supposedly in Wake Co, NC, and died Jan 1852 in Hinds Co, MS.He md Elizabeth Pepper Garner (b 2 Sep 1807 TN; d 19 Jun 1898 Burleson Co, TX) in Lawrence Co, MS, on 15 Oct 1826.I haven't been able to find William's parents yet, but Elizabeth's parents were Eli Garner and Mary "Polly" Pepper. I have more on them.
William & Elizabeth's other children were Mary Lucy, Amanda Elizabeth, Simon Oscar, Laura Louisa, Victoria Lucinda, Susan Diana, and Annie Athelia Holmes Lane.
The family was in Lawrence Co, MS, in 1830, then in Ouichita Parish, LA, in 1840, then back in Hinds Co, MS, in 1850 & 1860. Their home was ransacked and burned by Yankee soldiers during the Civil War, and in 1870 they were in Copiah Co, MS. Elizabeth and some of her married children later moved to Burleson Co, TX.
