Nice to meet you. I've always wondered if there was a relationship between
SAYLORs and my LANEs. I'd like to see if you have any ideas on this. Also, I
have just a bit of info on Saylor family.
My John LANE SR apprenticed with Martin GARVER near Pipe Creek/
Taneytown/Libertytown area of MD in 1794 at age 14. As Merle Rummel on this list explained
to me, the GARVER home was used as the Beaver Dam Grerman Baptist Church
"meeting place" at that time. In 1805, John Lane married Catherine BAKER, daug of
Joseph and Mary ____ Baker. We assume the new LANE family, with 3 children,
lived with the BAKERs. In 1809, Joseph Baker sold his land in MD and moved to
Washington County PA. Again, the Census numbers in 1810 lead us to believe
that the LANE family made their home with Joseph BAKER there (until mid 1810s
after the deaths of Joseph Baker and son Phillip. By 1822, Lane definitely has
his own land.
In Dec 1844 (22 or 24), John LANE died. His Account papers have Notes held
between John LANE and many of the Brethren families of MD, including Henry REPP
and the SAYLOR (I think it was Daniel Saylor). So, my only little tidbit of
info is that my ancestor's account has papers signed by your family -- if you
are interested in such things.
I really would like to know someday if the SAYLOR family was related to my
LANEs. I don't know John's family (parents/siblings) though... so I am at a
brick wall. My Lanes were supposedly Scots-Irish per one county history book.
But this is not proven, so our Lane could be anything. John Lane supposedly
left his parents because his father owned slaves (?). And the father
supposedly served in the Rev. War..
Names of other families I know we connect to from that MD area are
GARVER/GARBER, BAIL/BAILE/BAILES, REPP through Bail at least, and maybe others. Joseph
BAKER we *think* attended Dutch Glory Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Washington
So, if you ever notice LANE connections, would you let me know?
Thank you Mary,
