Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 5th Great Grand Father.;
* 5x G Grandfather of my Aunt Harriette Richardson Nack and 6x G grandfather of my 1st cousins Melissa, Rich and Heather;


!REFERENCE:
http://www.martygrant.com/
http://www.martygrant.com/genealogy/lane/


!NOTES:DNA test results show that an unidentified descendant of Osborne Lane has matched 66/67 with a descendant of George W. Lane (c1840) of Houston Co., GA. George's family goes back to Wayne Co., NC Lanes.
- I don't believe that Osborne Lane ever lived in Wayne Co., NC, but the Lanes there and Osborne apparently share a common heritage somewhere down the line. That is a strong clue for future research.;


!NOTES:B/D is unknown, but census analysis shows him born ca 1750/55:
1790 Census = age 16+ (bef 1774)
1800 Census = age 45+ (bef 1755)
1810 Census = age 45+ (bef 1765)
1820 Census = age 45+ (bef 1775)
1830 Census = age 70-79 (1750/1760)
*All records are in agreement, and using only 1800 and 1830 we can narrow it down to between 1750 and 1755.;


!NOTES:B/P is unknown. There were Lanes in his region of SC in the 1750's, but it isn't known how, or if, he connects to them. He does have a genetic kinship with the Wayne Co., NC Lane family (see comments above on DNA test results). That suggests Osborne, or his parents at least, may have come from eastern North Carolina.;


!NOTES:Helen Lane Wiggins and Calvin G. Lane had a marker placed at Catfish Creek Baptist Church ca 2010, where they think Osborne and Hepsabeth, Alexander and Lucinda are buried (but not certain):
In Memory
Osborne Lane
1745-1840

!MARRIAGE:ca 1765/70 based upon two oldest children's approximate birth dates, and age of wife:
Hepsabeth b. 1752, would be 13 in 1765, so probably earliest age to marry.
John b. 1765/70

** Osborne had no slaves in 1800, so he must have purchased these between 1800 and 1810. An 1809 deed shows the purchase of Pash.;

LANE.—The Lane family, with its many connections, will now be noticed. They all came from old Osborne Lane, on Buck Swamp. He was here, and a man grown, with, perhaps, a family, in the Revolutionary War, and was a Tory ; he died in 1840. Bishop Gregg, in his history, page 359, says : "Nothing of importance occurred until they reached .'Hulin's Mill.' Note — "This was the site of the mill owned by the late Joseph Bass, ten or twelve miles above Marion Court House." "Here they surprised two notorious Tories, John Deer and Osborne Lane. The latter was shot in attempting to make his escape into Catfish Swamp, and got off with a broken arm. Deer was overtaken as he reached the swamp, and killed. It was on this occasion, or shortly before, that Caleb Williams, a desperate marauder, noted especially for house burning, was taken by Kolb's party and hung. After proceeding further, capturing other guilty parties, and punishing or discharging them on promise of good behavior, Colonel Kolb returned home and dismissed his party, feeling secure for a time at least in the thought that the Tories had been overawed, and would not soon renew their depredations. In this, however, he was most sadly deceived," &c. The division line between Whig and Tory as made during the Revolution, and kept up for many years afterward, should be forever obliterated— in fact, our late Confederate War knocked that line into smithereens ; some of the best soldiers we had in the army from Marion County were descendants of Tories ; were it necessary to do so, numbers of them could be named, hence it is no longer an opprobrium to be called a Tory or the descendant of a Tory. Many of the descendants of this very Osborne Lane, mentioned by Bishop Gregg above, were and are among our best people, and were among the best soldiers in the Southern army. Many of the old Tories, and perhaps a majority of them, were Tories from conviction, and thought it would be treason —the highest crime known to the law—to take up arms against the king and his government; that by so doing, in the event of the king's success, that they would all be hanged as rebels. They were honest in it. The consequence was, they were under the ban of the local provincial government. They were compelled to take a stand, and forced to leave their homes and families, and lie out in the woods and swamps, or be carried into a war, the end of which might make them amenable to all the penalties of high treason; and being thus compelled to lie out, they could not pursue their several vocations in life for the support of themselves and families. In these circumstances, they were forced to steal and plunder or starve themselves and families. They became thieves, marauders, from compulsion, from high necessity, and not from choice. There was no moral turpitude in it, because they were forced to it by the powers that be. So it was in our war from 1861 to 1865. It is true, that many were Tories, not from conviction but from a desire to be in a position to live upon the labor of others ; were rogues at heart, and only wanted an opportunity to exercise and gratify their thievish inclinations. With all such, the writer nor any honest man sympathizes-they became thieves and marauders from choice. Osborne Lane lived here till 1840, an honest, good citizen, and had the respect of all who knew him. Osborne Lane often told the story afterwards : That when he was shot by Colonel Kolb's party, he got off into the swamp with his broken arm ; that he crawled into a hollow log and lay there whilst they were hunting him, and after a while they came and sat down on the log into which he had secreted himself that he was so agitated and so much frightened that he was afraid they would hear his heart beat. If Osborne Lane was like his sons, he, although a Tory from conviction, was no marauder from choice. We have not any people within our bounds more honest and law-abiding than the descendants of Osborne Lane, nor did the Confederacy have any better soldiers or truer patriots in its armies than the descendants of old Osborne. The many Lanes, Smiths and, more than all, the late John Blackman (Jack), went into the Southern army and stood shoulder to shoulder with the descendants of the Whigs of the Revolution, and do not deserve to be taunted with the Toryism of their ancestors.

"Jack" Blackman, as we called him, was a grand-son by his mother of old Osborne Lane, and a grand-son by his father of the Blackman (Tory), whom Colonel Maurice Murphy tied up and gave him fifty lashes, and this was repeated several times, because Blackman said and stuck to it to the last, that he was for King George (Gregg's History, p. 354). If Toryism in the Revolution was odious, and still odious, then the late Jack Blackman was doubly odious—for he had it on both sides. The whole South might be challenged to produce a parallel to Jack Blackman for unquestioned patriotism and oool courage. He volunteered in the Southern cause at the age of fifty-nine ; he went into the army in Virginia, and after staying in service, was discharged on account of his age. He knocked around the camp for three or four days, with a discharge in his pocket. In the meantime, a battle occurred. Jack went back to his company, took his gun and went into the fight, was shot through the abdomen, the ball passing out at the rear— it happened not to cut any of his intestines, and Jack sur- vived it ; he lay in the hospital for two or three months, and then returned home. I will say nothing of his future services in the war. Here is a descendant of Tories on both sides. Was be odious ? Blot out the line between the Whigs and Tories of the Revolution and never mention it again. Jack Blackman lived to be ninety years of age; in many respects, he was the noblest man of his day. I think this has already been mentioned berein, but it is so appropriate to the purpose just here, with the Lane family, that I cannot forbear repeating. Jack Blackman ought to have a monument erected to his memory it is already erected in the hearts of all who knew him and knew of him.

Osborne Lane married a Miss Crawford, a sister of old James Crawford, of Spring Branch—I suppose, older than her brother. The Crawfords were quite respectable in that day and have continued to be so down to the present time. The fruits of the marriage, as known, were eight sons, John, Thomas, Alexander, James, Robert, David, Stephen and William, and two daughters, Kesiah and Elizabeth.

Of the daughters, one, Elizabeth, married old John Blackman, a son of the old Tory John, that Colonel Murphy tied and whipped ; by this marriage were three children born and raised, as known to the writer— Stephen Blackman and John, called Jack ; the name of "the daughter was Elizabeth, or Betsey; when an old maid, she became the second wife of Rev. John D. Coleman, below Marion ; both are dead ; don't know whether she left any children or not. Stephen Blackman married some one, to the writer not known ; he died many years ago, and left a son, William, called Billy Blackman, and is now a middle-aged man and lives somewhere in the Latta neighborhood ; married, and has a family. John (Jack) Blackman married a Miss Bird, a sister of the late Hugh and Joe Bird, of the Toby's Creek section ; by her he raised two sons, Joseph A. and Hamilton, who, like their father, were good soldiers in the war. Hamilton was killed about Charleston, S. C. Joe died since the war, leaving several children; his widow married again, Robert C. Rogers, of Wahee Township ; know nothing of Joseph A. Blackman's children, suppose some or all of them are grown. John (Jack) Blackman was married a second time, late in life, to Caroline Mears, and by her had and raised one or two sons— one, named John, is as much like old John as it- is possible for a young man to favor an old man ; these sons are in the Mullins section. Old John (Jack) died in 1895, in June, and was ninety years of age in December before he died, as brave and patriotic as any man that ever lived in the county, and as honest as the days were long.

The other daughter, Kesiah, of old Osborne Lane, married old Samuel Smith (three junior), of Buck Swamp; the results of the marriage were two sons, John L. and Stephen Smith, born, respectively, in 1811 and 1813, when she died; and old man Samuel, Jr., married a second time, Miss Sallie Hays, daughter of old Ben Hays, of Hillsboro Township (now), and who has already been noticed herein among the Hays family. Two better citizens than John L. Smith and Stephen Smith are hard to find anywhere. John L. Smith became a Methodist traveling preacher, and after traveling three or four years, married a Miss Wannamaker, of Orangeburg County, and located, but continued to preach in a local position up to a short time before his death; he was an exemplary, pious. Christian gentleman. John L. Smith settled in the Fork, on Buck Swamp, and accumulated a good property, which he left unincumbered to his widow by a second marriage and his children ; he raised five sons and three daughters ; his sons were Daniel Asbury, Marcus L., Jacob W., John A. and Wilbur F. Smith, each and every one of whom, except, perhaps, Wilbur and Albert, who was too young, went into the war early and remained in it to the end. Marcus L. was badly wounded, and carries the evidence of it in his person every day since. Daniel Asbury came out of the war as a Captain ; married, after the war. Miss Alice Bethea, a daughter of Captain E. C. Bethea; by the marriage four sons were born and raised, of whom Dr. Maxcy Smith, the eldest, now at Page's Mill, is one and the only one in the State. The other three, with their mother, are in Birmingham, Ala., all doing well. Dr. Maxcy Smith married an Alabama lady. and has three or four children (small). Daniel Asbury Smith died some years ago. Marcus L. Smith married Miss Mary Smith, a daughter of Reddin W. Smith, east of Marion ; they have some children; don't know how many; has one or two married daughters. Jacob W. Smith, the third son, married Miss Fannie Nichols, who has already been noticed in or among the Nichols family. John Albert Smith, the fourth son, married a widow, Jennie Smith, of Mississippi; had and raised three daughters and one son, Henry Smith, now at Mullins, and has a family (small). The three daughters are married—the eldest to John Wilcox, of Marion, already mentioned among the Wayne family. Another daughter married Dennis Berry, of Marion ; they have some children, how many is unknown. The youngest daughter, Laura, married Chalmers Rogers, of Mullins, and resides there. John Albert Smith was first appointed County Auditor, which place he held with success for three or four years, when he was elected Clerk of the Court in 1880, as successor to R. K. Clark; he held that office for two years, when he died, and was succeeded by John Wilcox, as hereinbefore stated. The three daughters of John L. Smith were Anna M., Jane and Hettie. Anna M. married Philip W. Bethea; by the marriage, three sons and three daughters have been raised??George C, L. Asbury and Pickett the daughters are Bettie, Nannie and Lilian. George married Julia Wayne, the only daughter of Gabriel L Wayne; they had no offspring, and he died a few years ago. L. Asbury never married, and died two years ago. Pickett Bethea, the third son, married a daughter of Captain R. H. Rogers, of the Gaddy's Mill section ; they have, perhaps, two or three children (small) ; Pickett is a graduate of Wofford College, and has successfully followed teaching ever since his graduation —has been teaching in the same school in Darlington County for four or five years, which evidences his popularity as a teacher. Bettie, the eldest daughter, married David E. Allen, and has already been noticed among the Watson or Allen family. Nannie and Lilian recently married two Mr. Williams, brothers, saw mill men; may have a child each. The second daughter of John L. Smith, Jane, became the second wife of Dr. John J. Bethea, of Mullins; by this marriage, two sons, Lawrence and Julian, and one daughter, Minnie were born. Lawrence Bethea married a lady in Mississippi, first, and by her had three or four ohildren—a son grown, named John ; a daughter, Ruth, who married a Mr. West, from Augusta, Ga., and who is now at Mullins, merchandising;. and one daughter. Pearl, who died before maturity. The first wife died, and Lawrence married a Miss Rogers, daughter of David S. Rogers, of the "Free State" section ; he is farming. Julian M. Bethea, the second son of Dr. John J. Bethea, married a lady in Mississippi ; has only one child, a daughter ; he is merchandising at Mullins. Hettie Smith, the youngest daughter of John L. Smith, married Pinckney C. Page, who was killed in the war or died of disease, and left three children, who has already been noticed herein or among the Page family. Wilbur F. Smith, the youngest son of John L. Smith, graduated at Wofford College, in 1875, and soon afterwards emigrated to Mississippi, where he still remains ; I suppose he has a family. Minnie Bethea, the daughter of Dr. John J. Bethea, married Robert M. Daniel, son of W. H. Daniel, of Mullins ; she died in two or three years after marriage, childless. Stephen Smith, brother of John L. and a grand-son of old Osborne Lane, married Polly Huggins, a daughter of old John Huggins, of Huggins Bridge, on Little Pee Dee ; by this marriage seven sons and four daughters were born and raised; the sons were George W., Ebenezer, B. Cause, S. Elmore, S. W. Smith, J. Emory (all gallant soldiers in the war), and another killed on the railroad, near Florence, during the war; these, together with their sisters, have already been mentioned in or among the Huggins family, the Martin family and the Harrelson family.

Of the sons of old Osborne Lane, it is not known which of the eight was the older— I think, however, John, who was a very old man in 1840 (the year old man Osborne died) . John Lane had but one son, John G. Lane; don't know who his mother was ; John G. Lane married, I think, a Miss Johnson ; they had but one child, a daughter; don't know what became of her; John G. Lane died years ago, was an excellent man and good citizen.

The next son of old Osborne, Thomas, and whom the writer never saw, married and settled, lived and died on a place near Sellers Depot, on the "Short Cut" Railroad, now owned by B. B. Sellers and Mrs. Lucy B. Watson. Thomas Lane had and raised one son only, Bryant Lane, who married, in 1827, Miss Henrietta Dew ; when his father died is not known. Since writing the above, the writer has learned that Thomas Lane had another son, named Frederic, who married and settled within 100 feet of where the depot at Sellers now stands that he afterwards emigrated to Alabama ; that his descendants are there now ; that some of Frederic's family came out here a few years ago, to visit their relatives, and that subsequently the late Captain Stephen D. Lane went to Alabama to see his relatives in that State; that Frederic's family and descendants are doing well. Thomas Lane may have had a daughter or daughters— if so, where she or they are is unknown. Bryant Lane's family have already been noticed in or among the Dew families, to which the reader is referred.

Alexander Lane, the third son of Osborne, I think, married a Miss Blackman (in this I may be mistaken) ; he lived and died on upper Buck Swamp, below Latta, and near where his father lived and died. Alexander Lane had and raised a numerous family of sons and daughters, only a few of whom are known to the writer. Samuel Lane, the oldest son, as I suppose, now a very old man, married, first, Sarah Coward, a daughter, of Wilson Coward, who owned the lands whereon Dillon now is situated, and by her had six or seven children, two of whom only were sons, William B. and Lane. One of these emigrated to Texas some years ago, having a family (increasing) when he left. Joseph Lane, another son of old Alexander, married twice (don't know to whom), and had several sons; those known are Alexander, William and Elisha—there are, perhaps, other sons and daughters ; he died some years ago ; was an honest, hard-working man, a good soldier in the war. Osborne Lane, another son of Alexander, married a Christmas, and lives near Mallory, on Little Reedy Creek ; he has several sons, the names of whom are unknown ; he is an honest, hard-working man and a good citizen. Another son of Alexander married a Miss Hensey, and has several sons—has removed to Florence County, and it is said is well to do. Another son of old Alexander, Robert Lane, married a Miss Rogers, and has a family, about whom the writer knows nothing. Another son of old Alexander, Leonard, was killed in the war. They were all good soldiers in the Confederate war.

James C. Lane, I think, the youngest son of old Osborne, was a most excellent man and a good citizen ; he married a Miss Lee, daughter of old John Lee, on the north side of Buck Swamp, and settled on Catfish, just opposite Latta ; he had and raised four sons, James C, Jr., Crawford, John O. and Stephen L. Lane, and four daughters, Hapsey, Sarah Anne, Orphea and Priscilla. Of the sons, James C, Jr., married a daughter of old William Bryant, a sister of the late John M. Bryant; he had and raised one son, David, and one daughter. The son married some one to the writer unknown ; he has a large family of sons and daughters, several grown; he lives in Kirby Township. The daughter married Peter McLellan, and had several children ; Peter and she (Rebecca, I think, was her name), are both dead; don't know what has become of the children — suppose they are all grown. Crawford Lane, second son of James C, Sr., married a Miss Perritt, daughter of David Perritt, and settled down on the Maiden Down and Ten Mile Bays ; he raised a large family of sons and daughters ; the names of two sons only are known—Addison and James. Addison married a daughter of John M. Bryant, and has several sons, two of whom are married, and several daughters, some grown. James Lane, son of Crawford Lane, married a daughter of the late Samuel Campbell, and has a family, how many are not known. Stephen L. Lane, tihe youngest son of James C, Sr., married Miss Flora Campbell, a daughter of the late William S. Campbell ; he was killed in the last battle of the war, just before Johnston's surrender, after having gone through the whole war ; he left his widow. Flora, and several sons and daughters, none of them personally known to the writer ; one son is named William, and one daughter became the second wife of Merideth Watson, There are several other children. Another son of James C. Lane, Sr., was John O. Lane ; he married a Miss Sweat, daughter of old George Sweat ; they had and raised a family, none of them known to the writer —both are dead. Of the daughters of James C, Sr., Hapsey married the late James Porter ; they had and raised a large family of sons and daugliters, none of wlhom are known to the writer, except Robert P. Porter, in Marion; he married a Miss Johnson, and has a family of several children, none grown. The second daughter of old James C, St., Sarah Ann, married a Mr. Jones, who either died or left the country, leaving her one child, a daughter —what has become of the daughter is unknown ; Mrs. Jones is long since dead. The third daughter of James C. Lane, St., Orphea, married a Mr. Turbeville; they had and raised a family, and have grand-children, but none of them are known. The youngest daughter of James, Sr., Priscilla, married "Sandy" Norton, who was killed or died in the war ; they had and raised three sons, Woodberry, Houston and Holland Norton, who are now among us and good citizens— especially Houston Norton, of Latta ; there may have been daughters— if any, they are unknown to the writer.

Another son of old Osborne L,ane, William, married, don't know to whom, and from whom are many descendants in the county. Think Rev. William and James Lane and the late Henry J. Lane are or were descendants of old William ; there are other descendants of this old man, but they are unknown to the writer.

Of the three other sons of old Osborne Lane, Robert moved to Barnwell ; David moved to Union, and Stephen went to Georgia in the long past, and no tidings from them. ;

Hepsabeth b. 1752, would be 13 in 1765, so probably earliest age to marry.

!NOTES:To date, I have seen no direct evidence that Hepsabeth Crawford was the wife of Osborne Lane. Osborne's wife was indeed a Crawford, according to W. W. Sellers, so that part tracks, but Mr. Sellers also stated she was a daughter of James Crawford (Jr), when in fact he wasn't old enough to be her father. In a different section he correctly identifies her as a sister of "old James Crawford".
The evidence, such as it is:

(1) Mrs. Lane was a Crawford, if Mr. Sellers is to be believed. His work was based on his memory and the memories of those he interviewed, so he may be correct, though his work does contain errors. However, I'm inclined to believe him on this point.

(2) Mr. Sellers said Mrs. Lane was a daughter of Cpt. James Crawford, when in fact he couldn't be her father (too young). However, he could easily be her brother, and that is probably the case. James's father was also named James, so perhaps that is the source of the confusion. In a different section, Mr. Sellers said Mrs. Lane was a "sister" to "old James Crawford", which is more likely than her being his daughter.

(3) Of the daughters of James Crawford Sr., Hepsabeth (1752) is the only one who was Osborne Lane's age. Her sisters were older (Charity-1742, Mercy-1745). No other daughters are known. By the process of elimination, Hepsabeth is the best choice.

(4) Other researchers, long before my time, concluded Hepsabeth was Osborne's wife, but I don't know how they came to that conclusion, perhaps by the same points I raised above. Or perhaps they had access to source documentation that I haven't seen.

In any event, it is widely accepted that Hepsabeth Crawford is the wife of Osborne Lane. Some primary or even secondary evidence would be nice though.;

Crawford. — James Crawford, the grand-father of the late Chapman Crawford, had a son named James, the father of Chapman; whether there were other sons or not, is not now known ; there were daughters — the wife of old Osborne Lane was one; the first wife of old William Bethea was another, who was the mother of the late John C. Bethea; another daughter married a man by the name of Porter ; she was the grand-mother of Robert P. Porter, now living at Marion. ;

Osborne Lane married a Miss Crawford, a sister of old James Crawford, of Spring Branch—I suppose, older than her brother. The Crawfords were quite respectable in that day and have continued to be so down to the present time. The fruits of the marriage, as known, were eight sons, John, Thomas, Alexander, James, Robert, David, Stephen and William, and two daughters, Kesiah and Elizabeth.

!NOTES:David was *not* named in Osborne's 1840 estate records, nor have any other primary source documents been found that prove he was Osborne's son. In fact none have been found (so far) that prove he even existed.
- Sellers listed him as a son of Osborne, and stated that he moved to Union. If so, he was not listed on any census records there. ** I have not attempted to see if he appears on any Union Co., SC records yet.

* There was a William D. Lane in Union in 1790 (p. 45 Wm D. Lane 1-1-5-0-1). Only Lane there at that time. No sign of William in 1800.

* There was a James Lane in Union in 1800 (p. 603 James Lane 10100-20100-0-2). Only Lane there at that time. He was still in Union for the 1810 census (p. 590 James Lane 11010-20110-0-3), again, only Lane in county at the time.

* No Lanes in Union in 1820.;
