Although the book "John Haden of Virginia" gives Nancy a death year of 1847, she was in the 1850 Census, age 70. She did not appear with William in 1860, so presumably died between 1850-1860.

Nancy HADEN and William S. LANE had the following children:



John Haden LANE was born in 1803. He died in April 1835 at the age of 32.

Found in WorldConnect File. John Haden Lane married Lucinda B. Shepherd on 14 Apr 1831 in Fluvanna Co VA. Children said to have been William George Lane born ca 1833, John Haden Lane Jr. born 15 May 1835, and Virginia H. Lane. If they were married in April of 1831 and he died four years later, the youngest may have been born after his death.

The 1850 Census of Fluvanna does have Lucinda "Layne". She was age 46 and living with her was William, age 18. Perhaps he was the only child to survive.



George LANE was born in 1805. He died after 1870 at the age of 65.

George added to this family by Lois Long Carey. She also states there may have been a sister Elizabeth. This could have been the Elizabeth married to John R. Pace in Fluvanna Co.

He is said to have married Eliza W. Flanagan in Louisa Co.

1850 Census. Fluvanna Co.
George Layne, age 45, Farmer, b. VA
Eliza W., age 49
Frances A. M. age 22
George J., age 18, Carpenter
Sarah E., age 16
William H. age 14
[They lived next door to Peggy Haden who was George's maiden aunt.]

In 1840, George was in Fluvanna Co:
George Lane: 1m under 5, 1m 5-10, 1m 30-40 1f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 1f 20-30
They were counted only a few families from Peggy Haden - obviously the same man

In 1830, there was not a George Lane in Fluvanna Co. However, there was a George Lane living in Madison Co, AL - the same county where his Uncle George Haden had died in 1829 and where Uncle George's children were living with their eldest brother. The George Lane in Alabama fits this George fairly well:
George Lane, 1m under 5, 1m age 20-30. 1f under 5, 1f age 20-30.

Family stories are that George and family did move to Alabama in the 1820's but returned to Virginia. This would seem quite likely. I have often wondered how the two young children of George Haden who returned to Virginia and were raised by their maiden aunt Peggy, would have made this trip. Possibly they returned with George Lane's family. George's younger sister Sarah married William George Haden, the son of George Haden who returned to Virginia from Alabama.
