Daniel and Anna England Lane Family

Photo taken in late 1845 of the Daniel and Anna England Lane family.

Daniel Lane, on the right, was born 19 Jul 1810 in Amwell Township, Washington Co., PA, the son of John and Catherine Baker Lane.

Anna England Lane, on the left, was born 18 April 1814 in Amwell Township, Washington Co., PA, the daughter of Robert and Anna Catharine Knestrick England.

The photo was taken in front of the home of Daniel's father, John Lane, in West Bethlehem Township, Washington Co., PA. The home and surrounding farm had been owned at one time by Daniel's grandparents, Joseph and Mary Baker. Several years later, in 1847, Daniel and Anna bought their own farm located on Zediker Station Road in South Strabane Township where they lived the remainder of their lives.  The original log cabin by 1900s was covered in white-clapboard.  Later owned by Robert O. McKahan, it passed to his daughter Gladys McKahan who recently sold Daniel Lane's house, along with the barn built ca. 1890.

Daniel and Anna were married about 1832. They were devout Brethren (Church of the Brethren, often called Dunkards) and were members in their early lives of the Ten Mile Brethren Church, located in West Bethlehem Township, and in their later lives of the Pigeon Creek Brethren Church, located in North Bethlehem Township.  The South Pigeon Creek Church was the daughter church of Ten Mile Church of the Brethren.

At the time this picture was taken, Daniel was the minister of the Ten Mile Brethren Church and he is holding a open bible in his lap.

Anna is holding the youngest of their children, James Polk Lane, who was born 9 Mar 1845.

Sitting on the steps in the front left is an unknown female Lane who was born about 1840 and in the front right is Robert Johnson Lane who was born 14 Sept 1842.
