|Bio and Links|
My 4th Great Grandfather Lane came to Texas by 1835 and settled in a Stephen F Austin colony. His son, Alfred Lane married Charles Goodnight's older sister, Elizabeth. The Goodnights came to Texas in 1850.|
Charles Goodnight of the Goodnight Loving Trail fame, and Alfred Lane, an early Texas Ranger, were on a trail drive. Alfred had a dream that his family was in danger from Indians and told his brother-in-law, Charles, he would have to go home. Not long after he departed, Charles Goodnight and the other trail drivers heard yells and screams of an Indian battle coming from Cement Mountain, Texas. By the time Charles reached Alfred, who was dead, on Cement Mountain the battle was over and the Indians had left. Concerned the Indians might return and scalp Alfred, Charles buried him on Cement Mountain and returned to the trail drive. On his way home from the train drive, he left the other trail drivers and retrieved his brother-in-law's decaying body off of Cement Mountain to take it home to Alfred's wife (his sister) and children for burial in Palo Pinto Co., Texas. Charles called Alfred "a splendidly brave man."
I am very interested in Genealogy. My closest family lines are: Ashcraft, Cornelius, Crow, Cuberson, Eastwood, Garrison, Goodnight, Johnston, Key, Lane, Moore, Newton, Prather, Price, PROPHIT, Runnells, Smith, Snidow, Swearingen, Webb, Whilkins, Williams, and Williamson.
Only some of what I enter will be family connected.

Thank you for adding the memorial dates and information. I appreciate the timely manner - it makes a memorial more complete, don't you think?
I sent and edit through the edit tab, to connect William to his parents.
William's parents are:
Father: Robert Andrew Thompson #46779887
Mother: Jeannette Smith #46779886
Will you kindly connect this family back together, please?
THANK YOU for all the work you have done!!

Thanks so much for the transfer of "Jack" Maness!

First let me say thank you to a fellow "sister" and a fellow veteran. I served in the Army from 79-82.
Secondly, thank you for the information on Marie Isanell Minter's burial location. She was my 6th cousin. Our common link Colonel Robert Rutherford and Dorothy Ann Brooks. I'm not sure how you're related to her but it helps to round out my Rutherford branch.
May you always have clear and sunny skies to fly in and a nice tailwind to go with it. And yes, I'm a pilot's daughter too.:)
