Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired for a few years and loving it,but lots of time on my hands. So, family tree research helps fill the void. I'm researching names Ford, Myers,Lane, Rooks, Ruark, Holden, Gober, Standard,Standiford, West, Harned, Cranor.

I ran across this interesting law in the state
of Texas. Chapter 711.041 states, "the public has a right to ingress/egress to all cemeteries
for the purposes of visit". That is also to say that once "a cemetery...ALWAYS a cemetery" (if bodies remain in the ground). Furthermore, Texas law Chapter 711.052 makes violations of
Chapter 711.041 a Class A misdemeanor. Food for
thought as you and I go out to research cemeteries and run into individuals with an attitude.

Craddock G and Matilda Wilbanks Gober
Hi Jim,I noticed your message on your wall of a Wilbanks/Gober connection. Craddock and Matilda of around Jackson Co Ga are my GGG grandparents. I've hit a serious brick wall on finding who Matilda's parents are. Just wondered if you knew any info on this Wilbanks thru your Gobers? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely,Tania

Isom Asberry Gober/Wilbanks conection.
Jim. just wanted to see if you might have some information on know where I can find it. Lura Debora Wilbanks,according to Francis Scott Gober in a letter he wrote in 1966 and posted online by Barbara Cunningham(Gober),now deceased,Deborah was raised from a young child until she was married to James A. Felty by the Isom Asbury Gober family in Fannin County Texas.Deborah and James are my grandparents I'm trying to ascertain the circumstances behind this. Family lore is that Debbie was a Native American orphan and adopted by the Wilbanks. So far I have been un able to find any information on her childhood.
any information that you might have on this or maybe one of the other Gober members would have, would be greatly
appreciated.
Thanks in advance,Noble Pearce

I believe we met at the funeral for Jimmie. My name is Tina (warren) Held and the Great Granddaughter of Jimmie. Joyce is my grandmother.

I hope this finds you doing well

RE: JANE SAFRANIA LANE B.1822
It seems we are at the same road block. I have also asked a Find A Grave volunteer to photograph headstones of LANE family members buried at Hill Cemetery located in Trinity Co, TX. I am in WA state so it is difficult for me to visit the cemetery. Good tombstone photos may open up many clues to our mystery of Jane S. Lane. Accurate spelling of Jane's name, DOB & death date would really help. At this point in my research I only know Jane was Oliver's wife and mother of our great grandmother Betie/Bettie/Betty Lou LANE MYERS. Trinity Co. census records (1860,1870,1880,1900) give clues that Jane S. was born between 1832-1840. Jane's transcription listed in Find A Grave for Hill Cemetery indicate her DOB as 1822 and death date as 1880. The transcription dates are incorrect. Jane was still alive in 1900 because she was enumerated with her husband, Oliver in the 1900 Trinity Co. census. I think the Find A Grave dates and her name "Jane Safrania" may be someones guestimate. Michael R. Mathews, Sr. posted in 2001, Oliver & Jane's marriage date was November 1833 GA. This date is incorrect; Oliver was b.1827 and he would have been 6 years old in 1833. Oliver is enumerated in 1850 Rusk Co TX living alone. He married Jane between 1850 and 1857. Sophronia (age 15 est. birth abt1845) & William C. LANE (age 4 est. birth abt1856) are enumerated in 1860 census for Sumpter PO, Trinity Co., TX. The two are living with members of THORNTON & NEUE (not NEAR) families. This Sophronia & William C. LANE are not siblings of Oliver Cromwell LANE b.1827 but possibly another generation of LANE. Oliver's siblings are Sophronia b. abt1841 and Wm. C. b. abt1834. I have searched extensively for Nancy WILLIAMS b. abt1817 in TN. There are many Nancy WILLIAMS but none documented with daughters by the name of Jane (or Nancy Jane). As I am sure you know, our great grandmother, S.E. "Sophronia" E., aka Betie/Bettie Lou LANE MYERS was not so kindly referred to as a "half-breed" by one of her daughter-in-laws. My aunt Martha Jean LANCASTER PREUSS believed her to be a member of the Cherokee tribe but she was unsure because the family never really talked about her heritage. I have a photo of Bettie Lou LANE MYERS with her husband, our greatgrandfather "Jeff" MYERS, my grandmother, Peggy "Addie" MYERS LANCASTER, her husband Albert, and our great aunt, Lorena "Rena" MYERS MILLER & her husband, Willie. Best wishes, Karen

JANE SAFRANIA LANE B.1822
WOULD YOU HAVE A PHOTO OF JANE SAFRANIA LANE'S HEADSTONE IN HILL CEMETERY? I AM LOOKING FOR PROOF OF JANE'S DOB AND SPELLING OF NAME. I KNOW JANE'S HUSBAND, OLIVER CROMWELL LANE IS BURIED IN HILL CEMETERY NEAR HIS MOTHER, ANNIE CLEVELAND LANE. DO YOU HAVE DOCUMENTS SHOWING THE RELATIONSHIP OF LANE FAMILY TO THE READ, THORNTON AND NEAR FAMILIES OF TRINITY CO. TX? I AM STILL SEARCHING FOR THE MOTHER AND FATHER OF JANE SAFRANIA LANE. JANE WAS BORN ABT.1822 TN. CENSUS INDICATES BOTH OF JANE'S PARENTS WERE BORN TN. NO PROOF SHOWING NANCIE/NANCY WILLIAMS, AGE 53, BORN IN TN IS JANE SAFRANIA'S MOTHER. NANCIE/NANCY WILLIAMS IS LIVING WITH THE JANE & OLIVER LANE FAMILY IN 1870 TRINITY CO CENSUS.
