NAME: Sandy Lane
Daniel S. (Smith?) LANE (b. =1796) moved from (Virginia?) to the Bedford/Louisville, Kentucky area around the early 1820s. Through most of his adult life he was a prominent Trimble County official, at times a commissioner, sheriff, judge, etc. I believe he had three brothers. His brother Henry lived in Louisville and was a doctor. The other brothers' names may have been Richard and Joseph. Daniel died sometime after 1870.

Daniel S. Lane had at least thirteen children by two (Susan BARTLETT and Sarah Ann GATEWOOD) or possibly three wives. His children's names were:
Powhatan B. Lane (b. =1823) - this given name has me curious
William Bartlett Lane (b. =1826) - his wife Lydia wrote a book about army life
Richard Newton Lane, Dr. (b. 1828), my husband's line, buried in Texas
George B. Lane (died young?)
Sophronia Lane (b. =1830), married Nathaniel Parker
Mary Lane (b. =1835)
Henrietta Lane (b. =1837)
Malvina Lane (b. =1839)
Sarah F. Lane (b. =1841)
Nancy R. Lane (b. =1843)
Lara Lane (b. =1846)
Frances Lane (b. =1849)
Franklin P. Lane (b. 10 JAN 1853)
Last year I contacted the library and the only information they had on Daniel S. Lane was a record of a marriage. I hope that through you and the Trimble County website and historical society books you might be able to do a quick check on the Lane surname and come up with some info/leads. Thank you. Sandy Lane
