PIONEER LANE FAMILY


 
1.  THOMAS LANE was born about 1768 in Devonshire, England.  He married
NANNY "Anna" STAMP.  The couple emigrated to Hounsfield in May 1834,
settling adjacent to the  Washburns, Stoodleys, and Eveleighs -- all families that
they would later become related to by marriage.  Their place of residence appears
on the 1855 land ownership map of the town but not on the 1864 map, probably
indicating that none of the children occupied the property after Thomas' death in
1861.  

In the 1850 federal census of Hounsfield, Thomas and Nanny were enumerated
as the heads of dwelling number 232, family 232.  Thomas reported his age as
79 and his occupation as farmer.  Nanny was 75 and reported no occupation,
possibly an indication that they both worked on the farm.  They both reported
their birthplaces as England.  The value of their real estate  at that time was
estimated at $2,000.  

Living with them was their daughter Jane  Jeffrey, age 44, born in England, and
her son, Duane, age 5, born in New York State.  Also living in the same
household and enumerated with the same family number were William Stokes, age
50, born in England, and his wife Ann, age 46, born in England, the daughter of
Thomas and Nanny Lane.  The ages of their children indicate that William and
Ann did not emigrate until about 1842, a full 8 years after Thomas and Nanny.

THOMAS wrote his will on 15 January 1856 and it was witnessed by James
Marsh and William "Stodley", his son-in-law.  In the will he specifically
mentioned daughters Ann and Jane and he assigned his son Charles to be sole
executor of his estate.  On 26 May 1862 the will was proved and each child of
Thomas was required to give their full name and place of residence, thus
providing a valuable resource for establishing this Lane genealogy.
        
THOMAS died 11 April 1861 at age 93 in the town of Hounsfield, Jefferson Co.,
New York, where he had been a farmer.  

He married in or before 1801 in England 

NANNY "Anna" STAMP who had been born about 1774 in Devonshire,
England.  She died 25 November 1857 in the town of Hounsfield, Jefferson
Co., New York.  They are both buried in the Sulpher Springs Cemetery on
Sulpher Springs Road, Hounsfield.   Their gravestones, in exquisite condition,
stand half-way back from the road at the east end of the cemetery.

2.  THOMAS LANE (son of THOMAS & NANNY/Anna (STAMP) LANE) was
born 1801 in Dorsetshire(?), England, died 1887 in New York.  Though they are
not mentioned in Thomas of Hounsfield's will the best available evidence     
suggests that Thomas Lane, born 1801, may have been a first born son of Thomas
and Nanny Lane.  This Thomas emigrated about 1835, one year after Thomas and
Nanny Lane and in the same year as Charles Lane, Thomas and Nanny's next
eldest son.  Thomas and Charlotte had a daughter, Sarah, who lived in Montague,
Lewis Co., New York, while Thomas and Nanny had a son, James who also
resided there.  In addition, Thomas and Charlotte's descendants bear the names
Charles, Ann, Sarah, Thomas, Amos, Henry and Peter, all names found among
the other descendants of Thomas Lane and Nanny Stamp.  Thomas Lane and
Charlotte Williams were farmers.

               WORDEN & RHODA (WARREN) PAYNE.
        
9.  ANN LANE (daughter of THOMAS & NANNY/Anna (STAMP) LANE) was
born about 1804 in England.  As noted from the birthplaces of their children, 
they emigrated from England in or after 1842.  She died 12 March 1871 "age 68
years", and is buried in Sulpher Springs Cemetery, town of Hounsfield, 
Jefferson Co., New York. 

She married 

WILLIAM STOKES of "Adams, Jefferson Co." who died 28 March 1871 "age
71 years", also buried in Sulpher Springs Cemetery with the inscription "Gone
but not forgotten."  

Children, STOKES:

    28     i   WILLIAM STOKES

    29    ii   ROBERT J. STOKES married JANE A. (---)

    30   iii   ANN STOKES

    31    iv   GEORGE STOKES   


11.   JANE LANE (daughter of THOMAS & NANNY/Anna (STAMP) LANE)
was born about 1806 in England.  She married Robert Jeffrey and they settled in
Sackets Harbor.  She received a legacy in her father's will of 1856, but she was
noted as "a deceased daughter of said Thomas Lane" when the will was proved
in 1861 when she would have been age 55.  Her husband was not mentioned in
the will and since he does not appear in 1850 and 1860 census records, and since
their youngest son, Duane, had a court appointed guardian, it can be assumed
Robert died or left the area soon after Duane's birth about 1845.

She married 

ROBERT JEFFREY whose ancestry is unclear.  

    32     i   SYLVANIA JEFFREY

    33    ii   ELIZABETH JEFFREY married SETH LARKINS of Henderson. 
She is mentioned in Thomas Lane's will and is probably Robert and Jane's
daughter, since Thomas & Nanny already had a daughter named Elizabeth. 
Though surely a close relative, further research is needed to determine their
connection.
