Declaration

In order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress of the 7th of June 1830.
State of Tennessee
Bradley County SS.

On this 15th day of October 1845, personally appeared before me, an Acting Justice of the Peace for Bradley County, John Shively aged ninety-five years and seven months who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provisions made by the Act of Congress of June the 7th, 1832.

That he enlisted in the Army of the United States in the year 1776 and in the summer of that year , declarent says, that he went to Shepherdstown, Berkely County in the state of Virginia in company with one Matthew Shaw. And at that place ( Shepherdstown) they met with a recruiting officer by the name of Nathaniel Linder.

Both Declarant and Shaw enlisted in the service of the United States as private soldiers for the term of three years or during the War of the Revolution if not sooner discharged and received from said recruiting officer a bounty of Twelve Dollars. Declarant says that he remained at Shepherdstown some short time after enlistment. He thinks two months. He says as to the name or number of the regiment that he served in, he does not recollect, but recollects that he served under the following named officers vis General Stephans, Col. Carke, Maj. George Wales and Capt. Spottswood Sandrage.

He says from Sherpherdstown, he with his company marched to New Brunswick in the State of New Jersey at which place he says he joined the Army under Gen. Washington at which place he remained but a few days until he was ordered to march with the Army to a town called Trenton on the Delaware River. At which place, he says, the Army had a battle with the Hessians under the command of Col. Raule.  The battle, he says, was fought on the night of the 4 of December 1776 which battle terminated favorable to the American Army.

Declarent further says that they took nearly the whole garrison prisoners of war amounting in number to near one thousand. After taking the aforesaid prisoners, they immediately regrouped at the Delaware River.  And he says, that he was one of the guards ordered to conduct the prisoners immediately to Albermarle Barracks, the County of Albermarle in the State of Virginia. At which place, declarent says, he remained some three or four months as a guard.  And, he says, that from Albermarle Barracks, they took the prisoners to a town in Virginia, called Winchester, at which place, he says, they left the prisoners.  And, he says, he marched immediately from there to Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, at which place he was attached to his former company.  And, shortly after that they had a severe battle with the British Army on a creek or small river called Brandywine.  In preparation for the battle, he says, that he was placed at Chads Ford under the command of General Wayne, some small distance from where the main battle was fought at the old Quaker field in which engagement the American Army was defeated.  From Brandywine, he says, he marched with the Army under the command of Gen. Washington to a camp called White Marsh.  From thence to Germantown at which place, he says, that they had another battle with the British and were defeated again.  From thence to Valley Forge, at which place, he says, he remained several months in log huts, prepared by the Army to ??? in.  From thence to Manmouth. at which place, he says, the two armies had a battle.  And, from thence, he says, he went to While Plains, at which place, he says, he remained several months.

And, from thence, he says, he marched under the command of General Wayne to Stony Point, which march, he says, was performed in the night in great silence and ???? unloaded guns.  And, the Americans succeeded in entering the fort and capturing the inmates as prisoners of war, amounting to nearly nine hundred (900).  And, he says, that after Gen. Wayne got possession of the fort, that it was with difficulty that Gen. Wayne could prevent the soldiers from massacring the prisoners.

From thence, he says, he went to West Point in the State of New York and there remained some time, occasionally marching through the country to and fro and returning to the above place.  From then, he says, he marched to Little York Virginia. After remaining there some short time, a cannoning commenced between the two armies which lasted several days and the result was that Lord Cornwallis with his whole army surrendered themselves up as prisoners of war to Gen. Washington.

Declarent says that shortly after the Battle of York Town, that he received from his Capt. Sandridge a written discharge and he further says, that his whole time he was employed as a soldier, either in garrison or the field and that he was not engaged in any civil pursuit during the above time.  Declarent says that shortly after he was discharged from said service , he returned to Berkely County, Virginia where he says, he lived at the time of entering the service, as aforesaid.

Declarent says that about four years after he left the army, that his discharge was destroyed by fire in Berkely County, Virginia.  Declarent says his reason for not applying for a pension sooner is that he was generally informed that in consequence of the loss of his discharge, he could not obtain a pension unless he could present two witnesses that served with the declarent.  He says, he does not know of any witness that he could prove his service by.

Declarent says that by reason of old age and the consequent loss of memory that he cannot positively swear to the length of his service, but according to the best of his recollection, not less than five years as a private soldier under the above named officers for which he claims a pension.  He hereby relinquishes any claim to a pension or annuity except the present and he claims that his name is not on any pension roll of any agency in any State of the United States.

Sworn to and subscribed before me, the day and year aforesaid. S. Royston, Justice of the Peace for Bradley County and State aforesaid. Witness: P. Strothers.

5.   John Jacob Shively1 was born on July 9, 1751 in York County, Pennsylvania, United States.  He was baptized on May 17, 1752 at Christ's Evangelical Lutheran Church in York County, Pennsylvania, United States.  He died Unknown.

 

6.   John Heinrich "Henry" Shively3–10 was born on January 27, 1759 in York County, Pennsylvania, United States.  The Shively Family Bible lists his birth date as June 1760.

 

He was baptized on March 4, 1759 at Sherman's (St. David's) Union Church in York County, Pennsylvania, United States. A "union" church was one in which both the Lutheran and Reformed congregations worshiped in the same building.

 

He immigrated about 1780 to Kentucky, United States. His son John M. Shively wrote the following: "It was at Brownsville, PA that my father first fell in with Daniel Boone, who induced the settlement to emigrate to Kentucky.  The parties that came to Kentucky were Christian Shively, Henry Shively, Jacob Shively, and one other brother who was killed by Indians in Henry County, KY.  My father settled at the Falls of the Ohio and they were comparatively secure, when Boone visited them and persuaded them to emigrate to Danville, KY to help strengthen the settlement there.  Boone was leading them when they were surrounded on a stream called Benson, in Henry County, and the greater portion of them were massacred by the Indians.  Here one of my father's brothers was captured [and killed].  In this vicinity, they also ambushed a brother of my mother's.  His name was Banta."

The Bantas of Pleasant Hill, Kentucky section on the formation of the Low Dutch Company records the following: "In the Spring of 1784, Abraham Banta secured a tract of three thousand acres in what is now Shelby County and Henry County, KY, from Richard Beard.  In 1785, determined to have a look at their purchase before the main group removed to the new location, Captain Dan Banta, with his brothers Cornelius, Peter, John, Jacob, and their brother-in-law, Henry Shively set out from Harrod's Station for what is now Shelby County.  They went into the dense wilderness and built the first cabin within the limits of the Dutch tract.  They were there but a short time when they were threatened with an Indian uprising, and were compelled to flee to the nearest station for refuge.  This place was so poorly manned and provisioned that they decided to send to Harrod's Station for reinforcements.  Jacob B. Banta volunteered to go alone.  While crossing the waters of Benson's Creek at night he was discovered by the Indians who murdered him with his own tomahawk which they left buried in his skull as a token of revenge.  He been married only a few weeks to Catharine Voorhees.  The others returned to Harrod's Station when it became safe to venture out, and reported it was not safe for the families to attempt a settlement in the isolated wilderness."

Henry and Mary did not take part in the Dutch settlement.  They eventually purchased a farm about one mile north of Taylorsville, KY, on Brashears Creek, in what is now Spencer County (then Shelby).  This is well south of the main Dutch Settlement around Pleasureville, KY in Shelby and Henry Counties.  They purchased land from William Pope and his wife.  Prior to the purchase of the farm, Henry and Mary lived in Jefferson County, KY for several years, although their exact location is not known.

He emigrated to Kentucky at an early age.  He was married in Harrods Station in the year 1783 to Mary Banta, with whom he lived until the day of his death.  He has been a member of the Baptist Church for many years, and left his friends enjoying the pleasing hope that his spirit is with Him who gave him."  He was buried at Johnson Family Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

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

She appeared in the census in 1850 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1860 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1880 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  She appeared in the census in 1900 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Martha (54), Monroe (33), Oliver (27), Charley (21) and Mary (19).  She is listed as a widow, but she was actually divorced.  She appeared in the census in 1910 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Martha (64) and 3 boarders, among them is Ethel Breeden (18).  She appeared in the census in 1920 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Martha (73) and 3 boarders.

Martha Shively and Martin Van Buren Lane were married on February 13, 1862 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States (book C-5, page 3).  Cousins Martin and Levi Lane married sisters Martha and Elizabeth Shively.  Levi's sister (and Martin's cousin) Matilda Lane married Benjamin Chatham, a cousin of Elizabeth and Martha Shively.  They were divorced between 1882 and 1884 in Orange, Indiana, United States.  According to information passed down in the Charles Lane family, Martin V. 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 Lane3–5,8,10,39, 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.

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 appeared in the census in 1885 in Quenemo, Osage, Kansas, United States.  This Kansas state census lists Martin (47), single, living in the James Vaughn household.  His occupation was farmer.  He appeared in the census in 1905 in Ottawa, Franklin, Kansas, United States.  This Kansas state census lists M.V. (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.

S. Lane executor.  Heirs were J. A.

120.  Penelope Shively8,29 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.

Orange County Probate Order Book 36, case 1773, page 528, April 15, 1932 reports that Walter Lane by Harry W.

The Springs Valley Herald (February 3, 1905) reported " All kinds of people come to French Lick - millionaires and misers, princes and paupers, sports with money to throw at the birds and parsimonious old codgers who are so stingy and close that Pluto with all its penetration can't get through them.  But the tightest, flintiest specimen of Shylock that ever struck this valley ambled into Charlie Lane's barber shop the other day for a shave.  He sported the somewhat generous name of Pat Scanlan, and hailed from Peoria, Ill.  Before taking the chair he inquired the price of a shave, and when told that it was 15 cents he threw up his hands in holy horror and started to leave for another shop; but when told that it was the same price concluded to remain.  When Charlie came to the finishing touches and said 'Wet or dry?' 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."

Lane Groceries, Meats and Vegetables from September 9, 1929 (A mop was 25 cents).  The first library was in a room in a house on Maple Street and was opened in 1897.  Also, library books were housed in Chas. Lane's store for a time, across the street from the post office.  Your family lore is correct and the history may be richer than you knew."

He and his brother Clarence owned two gambling establishments, the Club Chateau in West Baden and the Green Acres Club in French Lick (their uncle, Perry C. Lane operated the Indiana Club, directly across from the Chateau Club).  Both of them worked for a brief time at casinos in Lake Tahoe, NV and Las Vegas, NV.  Casinos, Copperheads, Pioneers and Politicians reported "The Club Chateau, adjacent to the Indiana Club, provided casino operations, eventually became a Baptist parsonage and is at this writing a private residence."  It went on to say, "The 1950's club closings were dramatic incidents in the history of the valley.  On June 12, 1950, matters came to a head when Lieutenant Albert R. Stiles of the Indiana State Police at Jasper ... confiscated roulette, dice, and poker equipment at the Gorge and at the Club Chateau ... The Gorge and Club Chateau were again raided the week preceding the Kentucky Derby held the first Saturday in May 1951.  Law enforcement officers besieged the Club Chateau on Thursday evening, May 3, arresting three operators ... twelve visitors were also arrested."  The Green Acres Club was only open for a short while.  Bowing to pressure from the authorities, Chester converted the building into a motel around 1954. 

The original building burned to the ground in 1959 during a flood, and Chester and Ermel built a new motel on the same site.  Ermel Lane retired and sold the motel in 1975, but the new owners kept the name Lane's Motel.  In November 1994, a fire once again burned the motel to the ground, and a new motel was built on the same site.  The motel was closed in late 2017 and was put up for auction.

 

He appeared in the census in 1910 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1920 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  He appeared in the census in 1930 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Chester (23), Ermel (23) and James (1).  They were renting a house at 217 Walnut Street in French Lick.  His occupation was clerk at the Indiana Club.  He appeared in the census in 1940 in Prospect, Orange, Indiana, United States.  It lists Chester (33), Ermel (33), Jimmie (10), Robert (8) and Harry (2).  His occupation was clerk in a private business. 

 

He died on June 24, 1963 at the age of 56 at Orange County Hospital in Paoli, Orange, Indiana, United States.  James Lane related that Chester had colon cancer about 1959.  He had had some rectal bleeding for some time before the cancer was discovered.  His doctor at Washington, IN, thought it was hemorrhoids.  He finally had a colonoscopy, which revealed the cancer.  After treatment, which improved his life somewhat, the cancer reappeared in his bones, and perhaps in his lungs.  Chester's last trip to the Orange County Hospital began with James and Ermel helping him into the back seat of the car to take him to the hospital.  However, they only made it as far as the Gulf filling station in West Baden when Chester said that he didn't think he could make it.  They called an ambulance to pick him up.  Chester's bones were so weakened by his cancer that his collar bone broke in the process of getting him into the car.  He died in the hospital about two weeks later.  The hospital put a cot in his room, and Ermel stayed with him all the time.  His death certificate reported the following: cause of death was pneumonia and colon cancer, residence was French Lick, Indiana, occupation was motel operator, marital status was married. Chee was buried on June 26, 1963 at Ames Chapel Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.  He was buried on son Bob's birthday.

207.  Clarence Philip Shively "Bud" Lane3,8,33,43,53 was born on January 22, 1909 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States (book H-12, page 4).

 

He was a gambling club owner.  He and his brother Chester owned two gambling establishments, the Club Chateau in West Baden and the Green Acres Club in French Lick (their uncle, Perry C. Lane operated the Indiana Club, directly across from the Chateau Club).  Both of them worked for a brief time at casinos in Lake Tahoe, NV and Las Vegas, NV.

 

He appeared in the census in 1910 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States. Bud appeared in the census in 1920 in French Lick Township, Orange, Indiana, United States. He appeared in the census in 1930 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States. It lists Clarence (22) and Grace (22).  His occupation was clerk at the Indiana Club. He appeared in the census in 1940 in French Lick, Orange, Indiana, United States. It lists Clarence (30), Grace (30), Patricia (8) and Barbara (4).  His occupation was night club operator.  His highest level of education was 12th grade, Grace's was the same. 

 

He died on February 23, 1953 at the age of 44 in Las Vegas, Clark, Nevada, United States.  The Springs Valley Herald (February 26, 1953) reported "Clarence (Bud) Lane, 44, died in Las Vegas, Nevada, Monday morning about 4 o'clock. Bud had worked Sunday night until 3 A.M. and on returning home entered the bathroom to prepare for bed and collapsed from a heart attack.  He had complained during the day Sunday that he was not feeling up to par, but did not think it serious.  His son and daughter, Buddy Joe and Ann were living with him in the same motor court as were his brother Chester and wife.  Lane was a student of the French Lick High School from 1923 to 1927, a former partner with this brother Chester in the Club Chateau, West Baden and the Green Acres Club in French Lick.  The body is being returned here today (Thursday) and will arrive at five o'clock by train and will be taken to Ritter and Son Funeral Parlors.  Friends may call after 9 a.m. Friday.  Funeral arrangements are not definite as we go to press but it is thought that the funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at Ritters.  He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Patty Stevenson, Ann Lane, one son, Buddy Joe, and one grandson, Bruce Stevenson.  His father Charles Lane and a sister, Mrs. Herbert Bledsoe of French Lick, and a brother Chester of West Baden and Las Vegas."  The Springs Valley Herald also reported "Clarence Philip Lane, second son of Charles and Emma Connell Lane, was born in French Lick on January 22, 1909.  He suddenly passed from this world on February 23, 1953 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the age of 44 years and 1 month.  Bud grew up in the home of his parents and attended French Lick High School.  Most of his life was spent in French Lick.  At an early age he was united in marriage to Grace Springer.  Into their home was born three children, Patricia, now Mrs. Gene Stevenson of Paoli, Ann and Buddy Joe at home.  Bud's cheerfulness, friendliness and his pleasing personality brought him many friends.  The gift of making friends is one of God's best gifts.  To make friends one must forget oneself.  It means finding that which is noble and loving in another and appreciating it.  His generosity is best known to the many who received help when it was needed.  One of the most essential qualities of real character is the willingness to accept responsibility and Bud accepted his responsibilities without a murmur or complaint.  He was baptized into membership in the First Christian Church on March 30, 1921 by Rev. N. L. Collins.  His gifts to his church were generously and cheerfully given.  His mother preceded him in death in 1943.  Surviving with his three children are his father, Charles Lane, brother Chester, sister Mrs. Edith Bledsoe and one grandson, Bruce Stevenson of Paoli.  We are never ready for death to claim our loved ones, and the mystery is even greater when a fine, stalwart young man is so suddenly stricken and taken from his children who need him so badly.  They were his very life and their welfare his one great interest.  God does not plan for us to understand all things but he has left us many promises that comfort our hearts.  To the loved ones we would say: tighten your loins with God's promises and keep the strong staff of faith and hope in your hand.  Trust God in your dark hours of grief.  We are safer with Him in the dark than without Him in the sunshine.  His rod and staff never break.  Why he takes our loved ones whom we need so much we know not now but we shall know hereafter.  Hebrews 13:5 says, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.

For Thou Art With Me

I know not when I go, nor where,
From this familiar scene;
But He is Here and He is There
and all the way between;
And when I pass from all I know
To that dim, vast, unknown,
Though late I stay, or soon I go, I shall not go alone.”

He was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

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.
