My name is Terry Lane. I am the grandson of the late Charles Richard Lane, of Culpeper, Virginia. I started this journey of searching for my ancestors, first hearing some old stories from my grandmother, Mary Lane. I was intrigued to find out that we were related to people I went to school with, people I worked with, and people I saw around town. My grandfather always made it a purpose to tell us who we were related to, so I guess that's what made me look deeper. In turn, I started visiting the library, going to the courthouse, searching the web, running into something new every time. I was even introduced to Zanon Miner, a local historian, who assisted/assists me for no charge. How wonderful is that! I also was helped by my cousin Hortense, who knew a lot and actually gave me a head start. I am only 28, but I've been trying to find some of this stuff for a couple of years now. Forgot to mention... My great uncle Johnson Lane is also helping me to recall some of his past. I have found a Lane family coat of arms. A marriage certificate of an Elizabeth Lane, circa 1800's, and a photograph of an unknown person( maybe I'll post a little later). I am related to the White, Williams, Young, Washington, and Shanks families. This isn't much of a story, but I hope it encourages somebody who is reading this to come forth and share what they may know about the Layne, Lane family. Mostly in Culpeper, Virginia. I will post more, the more contacts and visits this story attracts. I may be [contact link]--if you have any questions or anything interesting to show. Thank you for taking your time to read. GOD bless.

I am looking for any lanes from Grant county area Indiana, Gas City, Jonesboro, Marion, and Martinsville areas. I have a few names Margaret L Lane born 1920, Alice L Lane 1916, John Lane, Glendora, Eva or Ava, Hazel are a few. I know Alice married a Horton Mcquithy of Salt lick kentucky. My Grandmother Margaret whom I am desperate to find anything on married a Anthony Black of New Jersey, and also a Lynn Hutchison of Michigan posssibly. She is deceased and burried in Fairburn Georgia Death was april 1963. I think maybe these Lanes parents where an Agnes and John, Also found Agnes under last name Stewart, and a lentz. Anything at all would be so greatfully appreciated. Thank-You Karen Black, Mayer [contact link]
