HENRY P. LANE, JR. , manager of the wood department of the Franklin Paper Company, Franklin, in which he is a stockholder, is son of Henry P., Sr., and Rebecca (Barkalow) Lane; was born near Middletown, Butler Co., Ohio, Aug. 13, 1840. His father was a farmer and a native of New Jersey, coming herewith his parents when 2 years old; they erected a house, which is still standing, near the hydraulic dam; they also had a flouring-mill there, which has long since disappeared; they owned at that time over 200 acres of the choicest land in the valley, including the mill site. Tobias Barkalow, grandfather of our subject, had at the time of his death over 1,100 acres of land at Poast Town, Butler Co., which was divided among ten children. After his marriage, Henry P., Sr., moved to near Middletown, where he had over 300 acres of land; here they raised six children besides our subject, who farmed till 23 years old, when he started a distillery in Shelbyville, Ind., in company with Capt. John F. Gallaher and Solomon J. Sayler; this partnership lasted till 1872, when he came to Franklin, and, in company with D. H. Clutch, Hugh J. Death, E. B. Thirkield, D. Adams, H. C. Thompson and John F. Gallaher, they constituted a stock company; they erected the first building of the Franklin Paper Company; since that time, they have bought and put in operation another mill close by; a full history of the mills will be given in the chapter on manufactures; Mr. Lane and D.
