Our John Lane Sr. (ca.1780-1844) was mistakenly (we think) included in a DAR Application, linking him to the wrong Revolutionary Soldier (although his father was supposedly in the Revolutionary War).  Read the files disproving this DAR Application and see the actual documents.  (DAR Application of Emma McKinley Nease for Record of John Lane, Bedford Co., PA) I welcome comments and any researcher's proof either way concerning this issue.

 

DAR Application - Bedford Co PA John Lane Sr.  - please read before going on to Sections 1 to 7 of the research.
