Helen, here is the next installment of Fred's Register Report.

19th Generation
Family of Dutton Lane Rev (18) & Pretitia Tydings

19. Samuel Lane. ®1 Born abt 1700 in Baltimore Co, MD. Samuel died in
Bedford Co, PA aft 1779, he was 79.

He and his wife possibly spent some time in England in the 1730's and
1740's. He owned the following tracts of land in NW Baltimore Co: Level
Bottom, Crosses Lot, Lanes Bottoms and Hills, Millers Gain, and Gills
Prospect. (from Larry James book)

Baltimore Co, MD, Indexed Tax List: 1763 (Corbin Lane, Samuel Lane Sr ,
Lane, Jr (Pipe Creek) in Delaware Hundred) ("St Thomas Parish Registers
1732-1850," by Bill & Martha Reamy.)

In 1779, Samuel Lane of Bedford Co, Pa, deeded to John Lane of Baltimore
Co, Md, 9-1/2 acres, "Millers Gain." (this could have been Samuel Jr?)

Went to Bedford Co, Pa. in 1773. (This could have been his son, Samue l
instead of Samuel Sr?)

Samuel Lane is considered one of the "mystery men" of the Maryland Lane
family. Only nine references of his existence have been found in
records of his birth, marriage, death and most of his children have not
discovered. After his father's death, he apparently lived on the farm
Triangle" near the present day Towson, MD. There are no records between
1736 and 1743, and there is some speculation that the family lived in
England in those years. In 1746, he, Dutton Lane (his brother), and
their wives sold two 25-acre tracts, "Lane's Triangle" and "Lane's
Venture." Accounts of the life of Lambert Lane suggest that this family
lived for some time in the wild country on the Susquehanna River about
15 miles from its mouth. This time period could have been between 1746
and 1755 when he appears landless in the Baltimore region, and it could
include the period after 1757. He briefly owned "Level Bottom," Cross's
Lot" and "Lane's Bottoms and Hills" in 1756-7. Lambert's marriage was
probably around 1760 and it was described as being in this "wild
country." Samuel may have died about 1758, but it is likely that he
lived past 1770. The apparent restlessness of the family was evident,
and this led to the
migration to the various frontiers by his children.

abt 1735 when Samuel was 35, he married Jane Corbin ®1, daughter of
Edward Corbin (abt 1685-1770) & Mary Jane Wilkinson (abt 1690-). Born
abt 1708 in Baltimore Co, MD. Jane died in MD abt 1773, she was 65.

They had the following children:
i.Samuel ®1. Born on 8 Feb 1736 in St Pauls Parish, Baltimore Co, MD.
Samuel died in Bedford Co, Pa on 21 Mar 1812, he was 76.

He lived in Baltimore Co, MD, until 1774 (in what is Carroll Co) when he
went to Brandy Twp of Bedford Co, PA (later Huntingdon Co) where he
died. He made numerous land transactions in Baltimore Co. He was a
Baptist minister in Bedford and Huntingdon Cos, PA. (from Larry James

Baltimore Co, MD, Indexed Tax List: 1763 (Corbin Lane, Samuel Lane Sr ,
Samuel Lane, Jr (Pipe Creek) in Delaware Hundred) ("St Thomas Parish
Registers 1732-1850," by Bill & Martha Reamy.)

Abt 1755/1757 when Samuel was 18, he first married Mary Corbin ®1. Mary
died abt 1770. May have been first cousin of Rev Samuel Lane.

In 1770 (Abt 1770/1785) when Samuel was 33, he second married Kezia
Sias ®1. Born in INT 1750 (Abt 1750/1765).

Paula Lane Smith found a death record in the 1850 Scott Co census for a
Keziah Lane, age 100, female, widowed, b. PA, d. Sept, 1850. There is
reported a deed signed by Dutton Lane and his wife, Kezia abt 1826.

Abt 1800/1810 when Samuel was 63, he third married Mary Wiley ®1.

ii.Lambert ®1. Born in 1737/1738 in Shropshire, England. Lambert died
in Shelby Co, KY in Oct 1804, he was 67.

He married Nancy Anderson while they were living near the Susquehanna.
He and his wife moved to the Holston River settlement in east Tenn
before 1776. He later moved to Shelby Co, KY.

Rev War Veteran.

Birthplace from W.D. Sanford.

He possibly was also the father of Ann Lane, b. abt 1758, who married
Samuel Looney and Elijah Cross in Sullivan Co. She was said to have been
1/ 2 Indian. If she were the dau of Lambert, she may not have been known
by his family's researchers who mostly found children in KY. She did not
go to KY with the family.

Emma Lane has a family group sheet that she made from information
supplied from Bible records by Mrs. Randolph Kennedy.

In 1762 when Lambert was 25, he married Nancy Ann Anderson ®1, in MD.

iii.Charity ®1. Born in 1738/1739 in Baltimore Co, MD.

In 1757 when Charity was 19, she married Greenbury Baxter ®1, in
Baltimore Co, MD. Born on 4 Oct 1735 in Baltimore Co, MD.

Baltimore Co, MD, Indexed Tax List: 1763 (Greenberry Baxter was in Pipe
Creek Hundred) ("St Thomas Parish Registers 1732-1850," by Bill & Martha

iv.Richard ®1. Born in 1740 in Yorkshire, England. Richard died in
Muskingum Co, Ohio in 1813, he was 73.

He was a Revolutionary soldier from Maryland. Moved to Muskingum Co ,
Ohio in 1810.

In 1773 when Richard was 33, he married Catherine Groom ®1, in Baltimore
Co, MD. Born in 1742. Catherine died in 1842, she was 100.

v.Corbin ®1. Born abt 1742 in Baltimore Co, MD. Corbin died in Scott
Co, VA in Dec 1816, he was 74. Buried in Vineyard GC67, or Lane-Wisley
GC28, Scott Co, VA.

Listed in NC Army Accounts, Vol 1, p 17, folio 2,two pay vouchers dat ed
6/26/1782 (No 279 for 5 pounds) and 6/12/1783 (No 1391 for 34 pounds, 8
shillings, 6 pence). Further research by the Daughters of the American
Revolution (DAR) has shown that these pay vouchers were for goods and
services, and not for military service. The DAR has classified Corbin as
a Patriot rather than a Soldier on the basis of their research and
accept his descendants into the DAR on that basis.

He was born before 1742 since he was on a 1763 tax list. Other refereces
list his birth date as abt 1750.

There are references that Corbin Lane was a Revolutionary War Soldier in
Sullivan & Washington Co (now TN) who had moved from North Carolina to
Tennessee. (ref: Tenn Soldiers in Rev War, Allen and Tenn. Cousins by
Ray.) I think that the source of this information were the above
mentioned pay vouchers, and so far no one has found proof that he was a

He was living in Bedford Co, PA from 1773 to 1779. Fannie Steele
suggested that he may have lived in Guilford Co, NC for a while.

He was said to have been married twice, and first wife is unknown.

BURIAL: He was living at Red Hill at the time of death as proven by his
will giving the land where he was living to Abraham Lane, and Abraham's
selling that land to George Vineyard in 1841. The very old Vine yard
Cemetery is on that land where Corbin Lane was living at the time of his
death. (Proven with deeds by Dale Carter.) The Lane-Wisley Cemetery,
GC#28, was on Abraham Lane's land which may have adjoined Corbin's. Our
thinking is that he is buried in one of these cemeteries , and after
more research we plan to place an appropriate Revolutionary War Patriot
marker for him. The two cemeteries are about equally distant from his
house site; if proof can be found that Abraham Lane owned the land where
the Lane-Wisley cemetery is located (and where John Wolfe is buried),
that would be some proof favoring that cemetery.

The year of Corbin Lane's death, 1816, was the year of the worldwide
cold weather caused by a very large volcano eruption. It has been said
that there were frosts, snows, and freezing weather in the middle of the
summer. Crops failed and there was much starvation. Thus, circumstances
at the time of his death may not have been conventional . There is
evidence that Abraham Lane and his family were living with Corbin
(Abraham Lane is not on the 1816 tax list), or Corbin and Fanny could
have been living with Abraham.


He owned 150 acres in 1781, proven by being listed in the 1781
Washington Co, NC (TN) Tax List.

Lee Co, Va on 2/18/1782, had land (250 acres) surveyed "lying in the gap
of Copper Creek ridge and on the waters of ?Creek and Big Mockason.."
(from Fannie Steele). This tract of land was sold on 1/30/ 1841 by
Abraham Lane to George Vineyard (Deed Book 6-313.) The tract of land is
located at Red Hill, Scott Co, VA.

Virginia Land Grant of 250 acres was finally granted on 10/3/1800 in Lee
Co, VA. It referenced a survey of 5/6/1798.

Book 1, p. 265).

Lee Co, Va in 1802, owned 250a (from Fannie Steele)

He owned land in Lee Co at least until 1810. Joseph Brock owned 5000
acres in Lee Co on Wallens Ridge - Fannie Steele speculated about
whether he was related to Corbin's wife.

he may have moved from Greene Co.)

Corbin Lane was not in the available information of tax lists in 1787 ,
88 and 1796, 97, 98. (from "Greene Co Pioneer," p. 9-89.

1810 Russell Co, VA, Tax List, Lower Dist (from Fannie Steele.)

In Law Order Book 5, p. 84, 1814, he was excused from paying taxes be
cause of his age and bodily infirmities. He was also excused from paying
county poor rates and public tax for an aged infirm slave called ____.
(Scott Co, VA, from Fannie Steele)

Holdway Lane's family history indicated four children: Abraham, Samuel,
Catherine(!) who married James (Big Jim) Williams and had 4 sons , 1
dau, and another daughter who married an Estep. He wrote this history
from memory on a piece of brown wrapping paper.

Corbin first married Frances "Fanny" Prock ®1. Born Abt 1755/1760.
Frances "Fanny" died in Scott Co, VA aft 1817, she was 62. Buried in
Vineyard GC67, or Lane-Wisley GC28, Scott Co, VA.

There are references to her name as Brock or Frock. The oldest records
give her name as Prock. There were no persons of these names in the
Bedford Co, Pa, tax lists or other records. However, there was a William
Proctor in the 1779 Bedford Co (Bedford Twsp) tax list. Assuming that
Corbin Lane married Frances in Bedford Co prior to moving to Tenn-NC,
then it is likely her name was Proctor, and William Proctor may have
been her father. Research is needed on the Proctors of Bedford Co.

Because of the gap in the ages of Corbin Lane's children, she possibly
was the second wife of Corbin Lane.
She testified on 4/31/1818 in the Wolfe vs Wolfe case that Abraham could
not read or write, but that his wife Caty could read. (Wolfe vs Wolfe,
p. 217)

There was a Paul Prock in Wilkes Co, NC in 1787.

Stella Chandler found information in the LDS Library for Silas Prock
(1808- 1857/58), b. NC, son of William (b. 1782) and Agatha (b. 178 6).
Silas appeared to have lived in TN and moved late to MO. Stella said
that she also saw a record on an LDS Library CD-ROM of a marriage in
Greene Co, TN, of Corbin Lane and Frances Prock, but did not record it.

Corbin second married First Wife ®1.

vi.Wilkinson ®1. Born on 21 Apr 1743 in Baltimore Co, MD. Wilkinson
died in Amanda Twp, Fairfield Co, Ohio abt 7 Feb 1814, he was 70.

he mean TN?)

x.Ruth ®1. Born in 1750 in Baltimore, Maryland. ®2 Ruth died in
Taylor Township, Fulton County, Pennsylvania bef 1840, she was 90. ®3

All family info from Brian J. Deaver, 213 Doncaster Rd, Joppatowne, MD
21085, phone 410-679-4135. (1998)

"The bible record of Vincent Stevens, Jr., seen by M. Joan Pressler
states that his mother as Ruth Lane and that she was born in 1750. She
died prior to 1840, as her name did not appear in the 1840 census , but
her husband was listed with his son, David Stevens." (1)

"In a postcard to Thomas O. Horton on 4/27/1991, M. Joan Pressler wrote,
"After a careful check / collection of all my old and new notes on the
LANES, I've come to the conclusion that RUTH LANE, wife of Vincent
STEVENS, was a sister to Wilkinson, Lambert, Dutton, Rev. Samuel ,
Corbin Lane (and others), and the daughter of Samuel and Jane (Corbin)
Lane. After her mother died in Maryland, she and Vincent came north into
Bedford County, PA (1773/1774) with her father and brothers. Anyway,
that's where I'll look - in Maryland!!" (1)

"Ruth Lane married Vincent Stephens, who claimed in his Revolutionary
War pension application that his family came to Bedford County from
Baltimore County, Maryland in 1750. This would make the Stephens’s
among the very first settlers to come to that part of Bedford County.
They must certainly have encountered problems with the Indians,
especially during the French and Indian war. Ruth and her new husband
settled in Plank Cabin Valley before the American Revolution. Vincent
Stephens was a private in the Bedford Militia. This is likely the same
company Wilkinson Lane had joined. In Stephens's successful pension
application, he related the information that in1779 the Bedford County
Militia built a blockhouse in Three Springs where the locals could seek
protection. Some settlers also erected cabins near it
during the conflict. Some of the militia's members were killed near
Ullery's Mill in Morrison's Cove. In an expedition to Kittanning Town
connected to this event, the local militia attempted to capture Captain
McGee, whose company had gone over to the Indians and Loyalists . The
Bedford Militia narrowly escaped disaster and failed to capture the
turncoat." (4)

NOTE: I have made the link of Ruth Lane as a Child of Samuel and Mary
Jane (Corbin) Lane based on Mrs. Pressler's research and carefully
concluded assumption based on years of data examination. I will
continue to seek further documentation of this link (BJD 4/18/96)

abt 1770 when Ruth was 20, she married Vincent Stevens ®1, in
Baltimore, Maryland. ®4 Born in 1745 in Baltimore, Maryland. ®5 Vincent
died in Taylor Township, Fulton County, Pennsylvania on 11 Jun 1843, he
was 98. ®6

Vincent was born in Baltimore, Maryland and was of Scotch and English
decent. His family moved to Huntington County, Pennsylvania in 1 750.
He moved to Plank Cabin Valley, Bedford County, Pennsylvania i n 1773.

In the spring of 1779 he enlisted at Shirlysburg as a private in the
Bedford County Militia and served as a spy and guide. "We erected a
blockhouse at the Three Springs in Springfield Township, now Huntington
County, families fled there and some erected houses there...Indians
killed some men under arms, near Ullery’s Mill in Morrisons Cove and
some other depredations that gave alarm so applicant had to get out a
party...had to get out a party to take Captain McGee into custody (he
had taken his company to join the Indians against his own country
supposed to be Kittanning town) but on being disappointed owing to some
misunderstanding that took place in their first interview , himself and
men escaped narrowly and returned, but our party did not succeed and
returned without finding him." (1)

Vincent received a pension for his Revolutionary War service, and
reportedly may have lived to be nearly 105 years old. In Reverend
William T.S. Deavor's book it is said that Vincent was born in Virginia,
" ...came to Bedford County early in the history of Pennsylvania and
died at the age of 108 years, 4 months and 7 days." This may mean that
his death date is actually 1853, not 1843, which would make his age at
death 98 years. (BJD)

Bob Stevens is currently (1996) working on a hunch that Vincent may be
the son of Thomas and Mary Stephens, who were among the founders of the
First Baptist Church at Chestnut Ridge (Baltimore County) in 1742. (2)

"I am presently (1991) researching any possible links between our
Vincent STEVENS, born "1745 near Baltimore," and Giles STEVENS of
Gunpowder Hundred, Baltimore County, MD, who migrated to Bedford County
about 1771/1772 with other families, including WRIGHT, PICKET T,
LOVEALL, CHILCOTT, and others. The LANE family had land in Gunpowder
Hundred before they migrated to Bedford County, PA about 1772/1773 ."

Subject: Re: Vincent Stevens

Phillip was actually Phillip Deaver Stevens...the Deaver after his
Martha Deaver wife of Vincent Jr. I have copies of Vincent Sr's Rev. War
records. If you'd like I could send you a copy. He was an Indian spy
and enlisted 3 times. I'd love anything you have on this line. Also, I
have quite a bit on the Lane line if you'd like it. Right now I' m
working on the possibility that Vincent Sr. may have somehow been
involved with the first Baptist Church in Md. at Chestnut Ridge (Balto .
Co.) Among the founders of that church (1742) are Thomas and Mary
Stephens. The first (at least full time) minister of that church was
Henry Loveall (aka Desolate Baker). He had a grandson (Jonathan) that
married a Viana Stevens and moved to Bedford Co. Pa. and later Kentucky.
Viana was born approx 1744. I'm thinking she and Vincent may have been
siblings...possibly twins...and maybe the children of the aforementioned
Thomas and Mary. Another tie in with this church is that Ruth Lane’s
brother John married Rebecca Loveall..granddaughter of Rev. Henry
Loveall. Also Ruth had another brother, Samuel, who became a Baptist
Minister and moved to Bedford, Huntingdon, Fulton Co.s Pa. Any
information you have would certainly be welcomed, and I will of course
Thanks, Bob Stevens
