To this marriage was born nine children, three girls and six boys, four of whom survive her, Martha Ann, wife of W. M. Munson, and three sons, James Henry, Thomas Edgar and Charles Augustus. Her married life continued until May 6th, 1861 and from that time until her death she remained a widow. At the death of the wife of her son, Henry, she made her home with him and assumed the care of the two small children left, and for 17 years she has done all that a mother's care could do to raise this a second family. At the time she assumed the charge of her son's family she was 67 years of age, near the three score and ten allotted to man.  She was a remarkable woman physically and mentally. Her death it is true is a yielding to nature simply, but life to her was still sweet, and her attachments to her children as close as they ever were, and in turn their love for their poor old mother was that of childhood.  She also leaves a sister, Sydney Busick, less than three years her junior, and the last of a once large and happy family, to whom she was very much attached.  As a woman she was pure and noble; as a mother she was ever gentle and kind; as a Christian her life was undisturbed, nothing ever caused her to waver or turn aside from the path she had trod for over 50 years.  She united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1841.  Just a few weeks ago, in a talk with her daughter she said, 'I am ready for the summons,' and a 6 o'clock a.m. Sabbath morning she passed the portals and today happiness and joy are hers."

Chatham.  Of this union seven children were born.  On Feb. 8, 1880, her husband died; leaving her the care of the family.  Three years later she married David Jones. Of this union one child, a girl was born, and shortly after she was stricken with paralysis and suffered all the agonies attendant until the day of her death.  However, she bore it all with that true Christian fortitude and patience that had characterized her early life.  She was a devout Christian and those who stood by her bedside and watched her sufferings and heard her agonizing prayers to 'go home' could have no doubt as to her future.  As we stood by her bedside during her last hours we were forcibly impressed with the beauties of a true Christian religion and realized the stability of a hope founded on the promises of the Redeemer.  She was well known to all of our people and was the recipient of many kind and sympathetic words from all who visited her. Hers was a cheerful disposition and until a few weeks before death, when her suffering grew so intense, was a congenial companion.  But the spirit has left its frail abide and joined the glad throng in a clime where suffering is unknown.  The children and friends, while losing a loving mother and a kind true friend, are glad that her suffering is over and that the body, that for so many years was packed with pain is now at rest.  The funeral services conducted by Eld. M. C. Clark, of Campbellsburg, were held at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. H. F. Johnson, yesterday at one o'clock, after which the remains were laid to rest in the beautiful I.O.O.F. cemetery by the side of the husband and son who had preceded her to that happy land.  Many beautiful floral emblems were laid on the casket, and the large concourse of people who followed her to the grave bore silent testimony to her worth as a lady and the high regard in which she was held by the community.  The children desire to return their sincere thanks to the host of friends who, by their many charitable and kindly acts contributed largely to her comfort during her last days.  Mr. Jones died two years ago and again she was left to battle alone."  The Orleans Progress (January 6, 1898) reported "Mrs. Matilda Jones was born near French Lick, Indiana, August 20, 1840.  She was the daughter of Daniel Lane, an old resident and prominent citizen of Orange County.  She was united in marriage to Benjamin P. Chatham, January 29, 1857.  They located on the old Chatham farm near Orleans. There were seven children born of this union.  The father and mother with their precious children composed a happy home.  The old home roof under the brow of the hill and the new residence afterwards built by the loving husband and father, where Lemuel Richardson now lives, are pictured indelibly on the minds and hearts of the surviving children as a model home and as one of the spots on earth where the sunlight of love and happiness shed their gentle influence in a glow of diffusive warmth, and where they all swelt in a strong bond of affection.  In the fall of 1879 Mr. Chatham, with his family, became residents of Orleans.  In the early part of 1880 he was attacked with pneumonia and died of the disease, February 8, 1880, being the first member to be separated from the hitherto unbroken family circle.  Mrs. Chatham remained a widow until October 12, 1882 when she entered into marriage relationship with David Jones, who lived in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood.  Tillie was born to them and survives both of her parents, her father having died March 23, 1896.  The subject of this sketch was an invalid about twelve before she was released from her dreadful pain.  She was stricken with paraplegia of the lower limbs and although she received the best treatment medical skill could devise the disease developed into general paralysis.  She lived to bestow her blessing on each one of her seven children by her first marriage in the ordinance of their marriage.  They all survive her except the youngest two, Lulu and Wesley, who awaited and welcomed her coming into the spirit world.  Mrs. Jones died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Homer F. Johnson, on the 13th inst. at 1:15 o'clock p.m., where she had lived ever since the death of Mr. Jones.  Now it only remains for me to speak of the estimable character and Christian fortitude of the deceased.  Through all of her life she practiced the strictest rules of rectitude.  She was scrupulously just, but withal liberal and charitable to a fault.  She possessed a loving nature. The good and beautiful found a true admirer in her; the poor and distressed a sympathizing friend.  She had a sunny social disposition and even in and through her long period of suffering she exercised great patience and due regard for the feelings of others.  Her friendship was a benediction and no doubt the many kind words and acts she bestowed on her acquaintances will be as bread cast upon the waters, if not to return to her to those who were dearer to her than all else in this world.  She lived a consistent Christian from her early girlhood.  She joined the Christian Church and remained a communicant of that order until after her marriage with Mr. Jones, when in account of the near proximity of the Mt. Pleasant Baptist church to their home she identified herself with that church.  The same faith and love characterized every word and deed of her entire Christian experience.  It was her delight to have someone to read to her, and the Bible was the book that interested her most.  The 23rd Psalm was a favorite selection that she often asked might be read to her.  She trusted in the Lord and although she had suffered bereavements and afflictions greater than many mortals are called to endure she exclaimed with the psalmist, Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  It is an irreparable and heart-rending loss when we are called to part from such a mother, but her memory will always abide with us as a caress and a blessing.  Her precept and example will live in the hearts of her loved ones and the pages of the book of life will impart sweeter lessons, because mother helped to impress them.  She bore her physical suffering with as much fortitude as it was possible for a human being to do.  She appreciates the careful attention of her physicians and the loving friends, but when human love and help failed with her as they must with all of us one after another.  She quietly and peacefully fell asleep, leaning on the everlasting arms of her Savior."  She was buried at Orleans IOOF Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

T.

Lonesome companion and children; we know thy care,
None can fill his vacant chair
Husband and father is gone from home,
He is on a mission to a foreign shore

He comforted wife and children dear, with the thought that someday you may have a happy reunion in a world where farewells are never spoken.  Memorial services were held at Ames Chapel, April 4, 1901, led by Rev. W. S. McCallister of Paoli, followed by Rev. Harvey of French Lick, M. F. Ham, J. P. Rominger, W. H. Porter, Mrs. Elizabeth Porter and H. G. Robbins, all speaking a word of comfort to the bereaved family, after which the remains were laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery, to await the resurrection morn."  He was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

Lane deserted Martha and the family sometime before the turn of the century and "went West".  Charles said that this caused him to leave school in order to help his mother support the family.  Given that Charles was around 6 years old when Martin left and he reported completing the 8th grade n the 1940 census, this statement is questionable.  Mona Robinson stated in her September 26, 1999 genealogy column Family Tree Leaves in the Bloomington Herald-Times that Indiana was reported to be a divorce mill in the middle 1800's because of easy divorce laws and short residency requirements.  The petitioner only had to place an ad in a newspaper where the action was filed; the spouse was not notified until after the divorce.  Martin Van Buren Lane1,6,9,17–18,35, son of Jonathan Lane and Rebecca Giles, was born on February 2, 1837 in Orange, Indiana, United States.  He was born the same year that Martin Van Buren became President of the U.S. (1837-1841.  He appeared in the census in 1840 in Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1850 in Jackson Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1860 in Jackson Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.

(68).  His occupation was laborer.  He appeared in the census in 1910 in Ottawa, Franklin, Kansas, United States.  It lists Martin (72) and sister Mary (74).  He appeared in the census in 1915 in Ottawa, Franklin, Kansas, United States.  This Kansas state census lists M.V. (77).  No occupation was recorded.  "840 Burrows" was noted on the census, probably his address.  Martin immigrated between 1882 and 1884 to Kansas, United States.  This is the time frame between the birth of his last child and his appearance in the 1885 Kansas state census.  He first settled in Quenemo.  His obituary stated that he had lived in Ottawa for about 15 years, so he must have moved from Quenemo to Ottawa about 1901.   He died on May 13, 1916 at the age of 79 in Ottawa, Franklin, Kansas, United States. His estate was settled on April 27, 1918, brother J. S. Lane executor. Heirs were J. A.

F. Johnson, Mrs. John McCart and Mrs. R. L. Hudelson and two brothers R. E. and Will H., are left to mourn the loss of a brother.  To them all it is a severe shock.  But to the mother who is languishing on a bed of sickness does the loss fall heaviest.  To her the loss seems irreparable and her grief is great.  He was her youngest and had doubly endeared himself to her during her long illness by his kindness and attention to her wants.  During the flights of delirium that were a result of his fever, he wanted to see his mother, who though only a few miles away, was separated from him by an impenetrable chasm.  His remains were taken to the house that she might see them before they were laid in their last resting place.  Elder peer of the Baptist church made a few remarks eulogizing the deceased and comforting the relatives and friends of the departed one.  After the funeral the body was brought to this place and interred in the Odd Fellow's cemetery this evening.  Two years ago he joined the Baptist Church at Mt.

205.  Penelope Shively6,27 was born about 1860 in Illinois, United States.

 

A journal found in Rosalie May Pierson's cottage after her death stated the following: Rosalie was born near Mt. Carmel, IL to James Bosworth Pierson and Mary Pierson.  Her mother died when Rosalie was born, her father was killed near the end of the Civil War.  She and her brother James were taken in by James and Sophia Shively, who lived in the neighborhood.  James and Sophia returned to West Baden, IN by wagon when Rosalie was 2 or 3 years old.  On the way, her brother was drowned at a ford in a stream near West Baden and was buried in a cemetery near Prospect.  Sophia and Rosalie moved back to Illinois after James died, but Rosalie soon returned to Orange County to live with her "aunt" Martha Shively Lane.  She later stayed with the William Rundell family at English, IN, then moved to Indianapolis in 1878.  She stated that James Shively had no children.

The evidence, although circumstantial, strongly suggests that the Penelope Shively listed in the 1870 census is actually Rosalie.  The timing is right for when Rosalie claimed to live with the Shivelys in Indiana, the age is consistent with her age in later censuses, the birth place is correct and James and Sophia lived in the Mt. Carmel area at the time Roasalie states that her parents died.

There is some question on her surname.  She is with the William Rundell family in Crawford County in the 1880 census, which lists her surname as Peck.  There is a James Peck who is the right age to be Sophia's brother with James and Sophia Shively in Illinois in the 1860 census.  She appeared in the census in 1870 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She died Unknown.

Pat said, 'a little oil, please.'  Charlie suggested a little tonic which Pat accepted, but when he went to settle and found that the tonic was 10 cents extra he raised a howl and swore he'd been buncoed.  Then with tears in his eyes, he declared he was a poor man with barely enough to get home on.  Thinking he might be a pauper, Charlie let him off.  He is reported to be worth $200,000, and probably is, for he certainly has never squandered his money.  He left for home feeling that French Lick was a skin game from first to last."

A Mother who never grows old.

And He molded her heart of pure gold. 
In her eyes, he placed bright shining stars, In her cheeks, fair roses you see. 
God made a wonderful Mother, 
And He gave that dear mother to me.

Notes

 

1.       Census Data:  Rather than repeat the detail from a family census entry in each person’s record, it has been recorded only in the Head of Household record, and only the census year and location are recorded in the family member records (with a few exceptions, like adult children living with their parents).  If you are reviewing a person who is not the Head of Household, be sure to look at the Head of Household entry to see if there is additional information.

 

2.       Name Spelling:  The spelling of names in source documents is often incorrect, with the name being spelled the way the writer thought it sounded.  The spelling could be different in every document.  In most cases the name is reported in this document as it was written, but some gross misspellings have been corrected. 

 

3.       Direct Ancestral Line:  The direct ancestors of Robert Edward Lane are highlighted in blue.
