John William Strauss
Greetings, are you any relation to the Strauss family who lived in Wilmington, NC, in the 1850s-1890s? I'm researching Clara R. (Strauss) Bremer, could she have been a daughter of John William Strauss? Many thanks, Amy

RE: Junius Davis
Junius Davis is my great-grandfather, and I'm been thinking about him recently as he was close to Appomattox 150 years ago. All the best Cindy

RE: N. Brickhouse
Thank you Wayne! Would you please link the Captain to his 2nd spouse (possibly 3rd) Nancy Dicksey Brickhouse, also buried in Oakdale?

Add his 1st (possibly 2nd) spouse Amelia (Emily) Christian married 1 April 1826 in Edenton, Chowan, North Carolina. She is not listed on Find A Grave.

Thanks again! Nancy

Col Peter Mallett

I believe the tombstone on Col Peter Mallett is showing death as Nov. 28, 1907 and not Nov. 27. Please see below on my findings and let me know if you agree.

Take a look at the photo for Anna Bell Gibbs Mallett(link below) because the photo is a little clearer. If you enhance it, it looks like Col Peter as death Nov. 28.

Thos Lane
Looking at my records I have a Thomas Lane as youngest brother of Wm. Henry Lane. Thos is listed in 1850 census with Norman and Elizabeth Lane and 1860 census with Elizabeth Lane and brother Richard Lane.
A Thomas Lane enlisted CW 1 Jun 1861 co. K 3rd infantry, captured Spotsylvania Court House, VA 12 May 1864.
Transferred to Elmira, NY 10 Aug 10, 1864, paroled Elmira 11 Oct 1864, admitted to hospital Macon, GA 15 Nov 1864.
Paroled or mustered out 9 Apr 1865. Source ancestry.

Church of St. Thomas the Apostle, Wilmington, NC Nov 22. I this day performed the funeral service of Thomas Lane, aged 24 years, who died yesterday of gunshot wounds received on last 4th July.
Original records through the Old New Hanover Genealogical Society.

I think this is the Thomas Lane you are referring to but does it belong in my family tree. If he is in my tree he was not born in NJ.

RE: Lane
If this is the Lane that was killed, it is not the one in my family line. I am still interested in this Lane buried at Oakdale Cemetery and the story.
The Wm Lane I am looking for was born about 1828. My Wm Lane is in 1850 census living with Norman and Elizabeth Lane and 1860 census with a Sarah living in Columbus Co. as an Overseerer (probably a turpentine farm)then he just disappears. I have a lot of information on a sister, some on a brother, the other two brothers no information to speak of.
Sarah Lane wife of Wm Lane is buried at Oakdale Cemetery along with son from first marriage a Richard Barclay and John Lane from second marriage to Wm Lane, also her mother a Mary Burnett some other family members are all buried same lot.
Any information or clues you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am researching Lane family. I found some information that John McIlhenny shot and killed William Lane 19 Nov 1865 in Wilmington, NC. He was tried and acquitted. I do not know the details of the trial or if this is the William Lane I am looking for. Do you have any knowledge of John McIlhenny? The trial was held in Supreme Court of Cumberland County.
