States: Missouri: Chariton
Hello, Looking for anyone that might know something more about the Mordecai Lane b. 1793 NC. Such as who his parents were or when/where he is buried. I am assuming in Linn or Chariton, MO. On the 1850 Census he is living in Linn County, MO. His wife is Rebecca 44, Ch: Martha 18, Ruth J. 16, Frances 14, James H. 11, Manervy 6.
Some other children married by this time were Nancy m: Alfred McDaniel, Cinthy m: Henry Lambert, Catherine m: Daniel Slater, and John m: Frances (?). Ruth J. Later marries a Slaughter. She is mentioned in the history of Bucklin and Other Settlements of Linn County - as a daughter of Mordecai Lane who was from Kentucky. Some of these children are born in Kentucky. Coleby Lane b. 1813 KY who married Celia McCollum is probably a son also.
I believe this is the Mordecai who was married to Mary Martin in Clark Co, KY and then later married to Rebecca Rice in Chariton, MO. I have read postings of a Mordecai Lane in Clark CO, KY that is related to Nancy Lane and Luke Philbert. Some of the Philbert children also ended up in Linn, MO. Any clues would help !!
