Although her birth place is stated above as having been in the U.S., she was born in Texas when it was an independent republic.
From the San Antonio Express, Oct. 2, 1916:
Many of the old families of San Antonio and Southwest Texas were represented yesterday afternoon at the funeral of Mrs. Mary Millett Lane, widow of the late Judge Ellsberry R. Lane. Mrs. Lane, who was born in Houston, Tex., January 22, 1842, passed away peacefully during sleep early Saturday morning at the home of her son, H. C. Lane, Millett, LaSalle County. The burial was from the residence of her daughter, Mrs. William E. Herring, 330 West Summit Avenue.
Chaplain McCord, from Fort Sam Houston, read the Episcopal burial service at the home and at the grave in Anchor Lodge, Masonic Cemetery, where interment was by the side of Judge Lane.
The active pallbearers were Marshall Hicks, Lane Taylor, W. B. Lupe, S. W. Kearny, J. L. Browne, C. H. Surkamp.
The honorary pallbearers were Thomas H. Franklin, Yale Hicks, S. N. English, Dr. Amos Graves.
Mrs. Lane's grandfather, Josiah [Jesse] Bartlett, and her father, Samuel Millett, both fought under General Sam Houston at the battle of San Jacinto. Her husband commanded a company in Riley's Regiment, Sibley's Brigade, during the Civil War. Here brothers were among the well-known Southwest Texas cattlemen. Her people had a prominent part in the shaping of the Republic and then, the State of Texas.
Mrs. Lane numbered her friends not only in this city, but throughout the State by the hundreds. This was in evidence yesterday by the many who came to pay their tribute to a noble character, a brave, generous, gracious gentlewoman, by the scores of telegrams of condolence, and by the great wealth of floral tokens of love in which the casket rested.
