"A. C. LANE was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, March 28, 1818, and is the second of eight children born to JOHN and ROSANNA (CRUMM) LANE, natives of New Jersey and Kentucky. JOHN LANE was born in January, 1793; his ancestors were among the colonist of New Jersey, landing in 1642; his parents came West in 1798, landing at what is now Cincinnati in 1799. The same year, they moved nine miles north, where JOHN was reared to manhood. He was married in Wayne County, Indiana, and died on his farm near Cincinnati, June 4, 1880; MRS. ROSANNA LANE died at the same place in 1878. A. C. LANE, at the age of seventeen, left the home farm and served an apprenticeship of three years at wagon-making; he then did business for himself seven years at Mount Pleasant and for five years at Darrtown, Ohio. In April, 1852, he moved to Tippecanoe County, this State (Indiana), where he bought a farm and remained until August, 1864, when he sold and came to this township and purchased 352 acres, which he has increased to 400. In May, 1839, he married ELIZA R. WOOLEY, who bore him three children, and died in 1844, a member of the Christian Church. In 1845, MR. LANE married BARBARA A. DARLAND, a native of Clinton County, Indiana, who bore him four children and died September 7, 1868, a member of the Presbyterian Church. In February, 1870, MR. LANE married MRS. MARY A. (KETH) BAKER, of Allen County, Ohio, who died in 1877 without issue, and a member of the Christian Church. MR. LANE is a member of the last named church, is a stanch Republican and has two sons who served their country throughout the entire war of the rebellion."
