Excerpt from
Page 205:


RICHARD LANE

.....”Was quite an early settler in Mason County [Illinois], and among those substantial farmers who contributed much to its advancement, and have now gone to their reward, leaving descendants who are among our best citizens.

Richard Lane was born in Tennessee in 1796, came to Illinois at an early day, and to Mason County in 1844, only three years after its first organization. He married RACHEL DRAKE, who is still living, at the advanced age of seventy-five years. They had ten children; two sisters and a brother still reside in Mason County.

Mr. Lane died in 1871.
