(Zane), Elizabeth "Betty". 663, 664. The information is incorrect in the last paragraph of the Bio of John F. Rowand. Google: Elizabeth was the daughter of William Andrew Zane and Nancy Ann (Nolan) Zane. In 1872 at the end of the Revolutionary War, during a battle with Indians at Ft. Henry, 16-year-old Elizabeth slipped through the gate of the fort, ran 60 yards to a cabin, under fire, returned with her apron full of gunpowder. On 663, 664, her mother's name was substituted for Elizabeth. Zanesville was named after Ebenezer Zane, 1747-1811, probably a relative. Ebenezer constructed Zanes Trace, a pioneer road through Ohio.

(Zane), Nancy Ann Whit, 633, 634. The information on 633 and 634 is incorrect. See (Zane), Elizabeth "Betty".
