John LANE, Sr. is the first child of ten children born to Rev Tidence LANE and his wife Hester VAN BIBBER. John LANE married in 1763 Susannah Clarissa YORK, daughter of Thomas York. John Lane was a law officer in colonial Orange (now Randolph) County, North Carolina. He is believed to have been a Revolutionary War Soldier. His father Rev Tidence LANE was ordained to the ministry by Rev Shubal Stearns at the Sandy Creek Baptist Church on Sandy Creek in eastern Randolph County, North Carolina. Rev Tidence LANE was sent out on mission as the first minister of the Gospel in western Franklin County, North Carolina; now eastern Tennessee.

There is no known grave site established yet for John LANE, but it is most likely he and his wife are buried in the old section of the cemetery with field stones that is now a mowed lawn north of his father-in-law Thomas YORK.
