I'm pretty sure you are technically a Lanier. Russell Johnson's sister Virgina is my wife Molly Sheehy Bussard's grandmother. If I've got it right you and Molly are 2nd cousins.

I stumbled on the William F. Lanier/Joseph Johnson thing about 10 years ago when Molly and I were researching James Eugene Johnson and the issues surrounding his death.

I'll be happy to share anything I have with you. You can e-mail me at
